Trinity Methodist Church’s summer season of Jazz Vespers continues. Each month the hour-long Vespers uses Jazz Music to explore spirituality alongside short reflections and prayer. Jazz is not only as played at Vespers as performance art, but as spiritual music.

Music for this evening with: Sounds of Hawkes Bay Chorus - a Sweet Adeline Chorus comprising women of all ages and walks of life who enjoy singing unaccompanied four-part harmony barbershop style.

Jazz Vespers contains elements of a concert and a worship service; offering opportunity for reflection through the notes of music and verse. Jazz Vespers is a new take on an old service: Jazz is music that has spiritual roots; Vespers was traditionally an evening service that reflected on the ancient songs of the Psalms. Jazz Vespers combines these to be both concert and contemporary worship; offering a space for reflection through the notes of music and verse.

The current Summer Season runs each 3rd Sunday of each month though to April 2017. Future dates are: (2016) 18 December Christmas – Jazz Carols; (2017) 15 January; 19 February - Art Deco Weekend; 19 March; 16 April - Easter Sunday.

There is no ticket costs, but Donations (of $5 or more) are invited at the Vespers to support the Methodist Church’s objective of “Let the children live”.

For 2015-2016 the recipients worked in the areas of youth suicide, and youth diabetes.
