Have a listen to a bit of music!

"Living in Harmony" was written, composed and performed by students at our English through Song drop-in, supported by the talented Melissa and Lizzy from Birmingham Opera. The words,collected from different students over a period of several weeks, reflect what the Sanctuary means to them... and (if you ignore the slightly shaky camera work) it is truly beautiful!
