Jackson Parish ChurchAirdrie: Jackson Parish
Church of Scotland


It’s over 10 years now since Jackson changed over from the traditional church organ music to accompany our hymn singing to that of a system known as MIDI music. This allows pre-recorded hymns downloaded from a PC, stored on a memory stick and then played back through a MIDI player and our sound system for the Congregation to sing to on a Sunday morning.

The small but very enthusiastic Sing-a-long Group ( Alex, Mary, Janie, Carol-Ann, Isobel and Kathy ) meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month to practice the hymns chosen for each service.This ensures that the MIDI player settings of speed and pitch ( transpose) are just right for the Congregation ( at least most of the time).Members of the Group take turns each Sunday to operate the Midi-player ( affectionately known as the “boogie-box” or “holy-oki” ) and the system offers a wide and varied range of music to accompany the hymns that are always sung so well at Jackson.

New members of this wee Group are always welcome.Why not come along and help shape the music we sing in our Church.No previous singing experience is necessary ( as you can tell, if you happen to sit in Church beside one of the existing Group members)
