The Choir rehearses a varied program ranging from classical works to more modern compositions, every Friday at 7.15pm, with younger members meeting at 6.45 pm.

St Andrew's Church Parish Choir 2013  

 

Well today is a very sad day! A young lady who has been part of St Andrews choir is leaving the UK and returning to the country of her birth, Ghana. 
She came to Birmingham six years ago as a young 13 year old, to live with her older sister and her family in Handsworth. 

I have worked closely with her at St Andrews and given her a musical education and we became very good friends. It has been like having another Daughter. 
Sadly she has spent the last five weeks at an Immigration Detention Centre in Bedford, under the threat of deportation. In spite of several appeals, a change in legislation means she cannot remain with her family here in the UK.
She has bravely took the decision to return voluntarily to Ghana, to avoid the stigma of deportation and retain her dignity.
She has grown into a lovely, caring young lady whose enthusiasm, personality, faith and smile won her many friends. It has been a pure pleasure to have known her and to see her blossom.
We will all miss her very much, but the modern world, however cruel and unjust it appears, is also a much smaller one and technology means we can all keep in touch. 
Our love and prayers go with her as she starts a new chapter in her life. God bless her.
