In an attempt to save threatened churches an initiative has started whereby choirs will perform in 40 of the most significant churches in England over the first weekend of October.
The “Birthday Song”, which takes place over the weekend of 3-4 October, will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Churches Conservation Trust and offer people the chance to find out how their local churches can be saved through community uses.
All forty events will have one song in common, voted on by the public. Choirs will invite audiences to join with them in singing the winning song.
