Members of South Argyll Guilds Together (SAGT) are inviting those who love to sing to join them at their ‘Wee Big Sing’ in Tarbert.

The Big Sing is a national event held at the Church of Scotland’s General Assembly, bringing together almost 1,000 guild members and friends from across the world in celebration of congregational singing.

A SAGT spokeswoman said: ‘It is always oversubscribed and held far from here so, undaunted, we are holding our own, smaller version – hence the title.

‘We will sing our favourite hymns, chosen by the guilds of the area. It will be our own Songs of Praise.’

The spokeswoman stressed that although the event is organised by the guild, it is not just for the guild: ‘If, like us, you feel congregational singing is one of the glories of the Presbyterian tradition, then come along and sing to the glory of God. Male voices would be especially welcome.’

The ‘Wee Big Sing’ will be held at Tarbert Parish Church on Saturday September 7 at 2pm, followed by tea and biscuits in the church hall.

The event will be held at Tarbert Parish Church. 50_c36tarbertchurch01
