BBC One's Songs of Praise is inviting church members to join them for two afternoons of traditional hymn singing at St Aidan’s Church, Leeds. These will be broadcast in future editions of the programme. They are especially keen for enthusiastic singers to make up a specially-formed ‘combined choir’ who will lead the viewers at home in the singing.
