Wrington Website
All Saints’ Church
Fern Urquhart made a considerable contribution to the life of All Saints’ Church, not least in taking over as Musical Director of the church choir on the departure of the then Rector, the Revd Nicholas Maddock, who himself had tken on the training of the choir when the previous choirmaster moved away from Wrington. Fern was already experienced in running choirs in Bristol, and, having been personal assistant to the Vice Chancellor of the University of the West of England, she was well qualified to deploy her skills of financial management when she became Hon. Treasurer of All Saints’. But, above all, what the choir, and the congregation of All Saints’ - indeed, the whole Benefice - will miss are her organisational and artistic skills with which she planned and prepared some outstanding spiritual occasions such as Advent Choral Evensong. Covid regulations meant those attending her funeral had to be restricted to family and close friends, but the choir and others of the congregation were able to await her entry into church on the west side of the path from the north gate from The Triangle at 11.15am.
