For such a distinguished audio engineer as Brian Latham, it seems apt that there is an audio recording of this Monday's uplifting Thanksgiving Service for his life. By clicking the link below, you can hear our packed church sing, 'Love divine', 'Let love be real', Shine, Jesus, shine', and 'Then sings my soul'. There is a eulogy by Brian's wife Pauline, a tribute from son Andrew, a sung tribute from daughter Victoria, a further tribute from family friend Geoff Harrington and the poem, 'How did he live' read by Rev. Jenny Dowding.
The service was led by Rev. Helen Kirk, with Derrick Matthews on the organ and Brian's guitar slot in the Music Group was filled by Circuit Steward Peter Honeyball.
You can listen to Steve Kemp's recording here:
