Sunday at St Mary’s Church

World Scout Day is celebrated on 22nd February, the birthday of Robert Baden-Powell, 1st Baron Baden-Powell (born in 1857), the founder of Scouting.

Scouts’ Day or Guides’ Day is a term for special days, observed by members of the Scouting movement throughout the year. Some of these days have religious significance, while others may be a simple celebration of Scouting. It is a day when all members of Scouting re-affirm the Scout Promise. St Mary’s had a special service where the scouts renewed their promise.

St Mary’s music programme seeks to stir the hearts and minds of all who worship (or attend a concert performance) in our beautiful stone church on the cliffs at Kangaroo Point. Sunday worship is cradled in a rich blend of organ and choral music from many styles and eras, and might be described as traditional, though not rigidly so.

St Mary’s Choir in its present form was established in 1994 as a mixed choir of 12-14 singers from a variety of backgrounds and professions. The Full Choir sings every other Sunday (see: choir schedule) at the 9.00am Eucharist and rehearses on Thursday evening (7.30pm) and Sunday morning (8am). The choir sings a broad repertoire, incorporating all periods of choral music from Gregorian chant through to the 20th century.

St Mary’s is the custodian of Queensland’s oldest pipe organ. As a result of the ‘modernization’ of this instrument in 1961 many important original components were removed. A major project to regain the integrity of the original instrument is planned for the coming years. In order to accommodate St Mary’s significant musical requirements in the interim, a 3-manual Allen Q-300 digital organ was purchased from All Organs Australia in 2008.

The scouts were present at the service, and sat in the first few rows of the Church.
