Here we feature people who are or were involved in ArtServe (or MCMS before it), including obituaries. Should we publish (for members only) a complete list of ArtServe members - perhaps including each member's home town/area? Let us know what you think - email the webmaster.
The Revd Bryan Spinney was foremost a true minister of the word and sacraments of the church and a real pastor to those in need. However he was also very interested in all aspects of church music and although not himself a singer or musician of any note he was a great encourager of anyone who felt called to a Ministry of Music.
Bryan was thrilled to be elected as a member of the executive committee of the Methodist Church Music Society in the 1970s, a body that he loyally served for many years. He was soon appointed as the editor of the MCMS Bulletin (subsequently called Notes) the contents of which soon reflected his imaginative leadership.
