Hymns include "In This Very Room", "My Shepherd will Supply My Need" and "Blessed Quietness". The service will open with the original tune "Shirley of Guilford" written for the previous pastor of the church, Rev Shirley Crockett, to mark the 18th anniversary of her passing. Emma Davis and Jenna Barry-Stoughton will be given awards in her honor and in recognition of their promise and spirits of service.
