Thornhill Presbyterian Church, an ethnically diverse church in Thornhill, had a special celebration to mark the Diamond Jubilee yesterday, Trinity. Worship included the prayer for HM the Queen prepared by St. Paul's Cathedral, London, and which was commended for public worship in the Church of England. Hymns included Vaughan- William's arrangement of "All People that on Earth do Dwell" and "Praise my Soul the King of Heaven". The choir sang the Gloria from Haydn's Imperial Mass. After the benediction, we sang three verses of the Royal Anthem. During the tea that followed, we had a rousing chorus of "Rule Britannia", "Land of Hope and Glory" and "Jerusalem". The singing afterwards might smack of jingoism and might have reinforced the stereotype that the monarchy is British, etc. but we nevertheless had fun.
