Song recording for Aug 2

For next Sunday (Aug 2nd) we have 2 songs to record. As before, the more contributions the better. As it’s an all-age service, I’d love to have all ages represented both in the video and the audio. I’d also love to have instrumental contributions.

To make the recording, all you’ll need is a phone / tablet / PC. You’ll need to play the backing track through the headphones and record yourself singing along. You can use a single device, or you may find it easier to play the backing track on one device and record onto another.

If you feel constrained by headphones & want more freedom to move around during the video – then please submit 2 separate recordings for each song – 1 audio and 1 video and I will ignore the audio from the video.

If you don’t have headphones – please submit a video anyway – the more the merrier (I’ll mute the audio).

The deadline is Thursday 30 Jul.

1. Find a recording app on your device.
a. You can use your camera to take a video
b. Or use an app e.g. “Voice Recorder” to record just your audio.

2. Play the backing track through your headphones (NB they have 10s silence at the beginning):

Wiggly Waggly Worm: https://1drv.ms/u/s!Auq7XoNGcsSkm9lVcfXtMAuwRP3b4w?e=USD15b
This Little Light of Mine: https://1drv.ms/u/s!Auq7XoNGcsSkm9hLpVUDkO06o-PGuA?e=AqorpM
This Little Light of Mine (Instrumental): https://1drv.ms/u/s!Auq7XoNGcsSkm9hMGhppECIj9BFfhQ?e=nnkIuO

For This Little Light of Mine, use whichever backing track you prefer

3. Record yourself singing or playing along. Don’t worry about extra noise before and after, I’ll trim that off.

4. Once you’re done, please upload the recording here:

Wiggly Waggly Worm: https://www.dropbox.com/request/I4G6seO37FmhVjjX5FtH
This Little Light of Mine: https://www.dropbox.com/request/Y80Tux7O6tagp9Gd523k

Note; please do use headphones, so that the backing track isn’t heard in your recording. If there are several in your family, please send me a separate recording for each person – though if you’d prefer to sing together, that’s fine.

Wiggly Waggly Worm

A wiggly waggly worm, a slippery slimy slug
A creepy crawly buzzy thing, a tickly wickly bug
Of all the things to be, I’m happy that I’m me
Thank you Lord I’m happy that I’m me
I’m happy that I’m me, I’m happy that I’m me
There’s no one else in all the world that I would rather be
A wiggly waggly worm, a slippery slimy slug
A creepy crawly buzzy thing, a tickly wickly bug

A prickly porcupine, a clumsy kangaroo
A croaky frog, a hairy hog, a monkey in a zoo
Of all the things to be, I’m happy that I’m me
Thank you Lord I’m happy that I’m me
I’m happy that I’m me, happy that I’m me
There’s no one else in all the world that I would rather be
A prickly porcupine, a clumsy kangaroo
A croaky frog, a hairy hog, a monkey in a zoo

This Little Light of Mine

This Little Light Of Mine, I’m gonna let it shine,
This Little Light Of Mine, I’m gonna let it shine,
This Little Light Of Mine, I’m gonna let it shine,
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine

The light that shines is the light of love,
Lights the darkness from above,
It shines on me and it shines on you,
and shows what the power of love can do.
I’m gonna shine my light both far and near,
I’m gonna shine mine light bright and clear,
where there’s a dark corner in this land
I’m gonna let my little light shine.

Chorus

On Monday he gave me the gift of love,
Tuesday peace came from above,
On Wednesday he told me to have more faith,
On Thursday he gave me a little more grace.
On Friday he told me to watch and pray,
On Saturday he told me just what to say,
On Sunday he gave me the power divine
To let my little light shine.

Finances

Due to the church building closing, Holy Trinity’s cash flow is critical. We are not receiving funeral fees or monies from the open plate, which includes the envelope scheme.

Giving

We would appreciate that people with weekly envelopes, send a cheque with the number of the envelopes to Andrew or Stan on a regular basis or set up a standing order with their bank (please see the form at the end of this magazine). Cheques or standing orders are also welcome from people who don’t have weekly envelopes. Thank you for your support.

Online Prayer Meeting

Update from Andrew 26th June

Dear friends,

I am sure, like me, you were pleased to hear the news that places of worship can open for public worship from 4th July. We are presently awaiting detailed guidance from the government, the Church of England and our bishops. The situation in each parish is different and we will plan for the opening of Holy Trinity for public worship when we feel it is safe and practical to do so.

In the meantime, we will continue to produce a weekly service of worship on YouTube.

We thank God that the virus seems to be in decline in this country. Please continue to remember in prayer those who have died, those who are grieving, those who are sick and those who are caring for them.

God bless

Rev Andrew Housley
