More than 700 people joined Christians Together in Exmouth (CTE) for Songs of Praise, in Manor Gardens.

The event, on Sunday, May 24, was hosted by Father Stephen Hoyle, of St John in the Wilderness Church, and the music provided by the CTE band.

The Beacon School started the celebration with a lively and well sung rendition of This Little Light of Mine. They set a very high standard of enthusiasm and tunefulness and sheer exuberance.

Eight local Christians, including former mayor Joy Whipps, explained their choice of hymn and its relevance to their lives and work. Their choices were highly popular. Had there been a roof it would have been raised!

On a sadder note, the Reverend Bill McKenzie introduced the late town crier Garth Gibson's choice: Will Your Anchor Hold.

Said a Christians Together in Exmouth spokesman:?"We sang in sorrow but also in celebration of a very special man.
