At Your Service

Sunday, 16 April 2023 - 31 minutes

Gareth Moore is well known and respected across the Island as an organist, accompanist, teacher and church musician. But it was his work during the Covid pandemic, when churches were closed and public worship ceased, that brought his skill and dedication to the attention of others.

Gareth used his knowledge of both music and technology to prepare weekly music for on-line services, accompanying himself on piano, organ and harmonium and even multi-tracking harmonies, singing alongside himself.  
Gareth's amazing efforts were noticed by the national administration of the Methodist Church in London and subsequently he was invited to produce musical resources for the wider Methodist churches on-line worship. 
The Guild of Church Musicians Council were also struck by Gareth's devotion to his music, and in recognition of this,  awarded him the Honorary Membership Diploma of the Guild of Church Musicians.
The award was presented to Gareth in a wonderful celebration service at Trinity Methodist Church at Rosemount in Douglas on Friday 14 April and today's programme is packed with music from choir and congregation at the church where Gareth is organist and Musical Director.
