URC Holiday Forum 2018 by Alun Jones

Dear Nigel, Dear Derek, I’m wanting to tell
good news from one part of the URC.
I’m here at Holiday Forum in Swanwick’s green dell

with Kay Alberg, David Fraser, David Legge, Iain McLaren,
Jenny Mills, John Steele
and Lawrence who’ll give us much more
and Lawrence who’ll give us much more.

This year Holiday Forum marks twenty-five years
good news from one part of the URC.
We’re celebrating gladly with longlasting cheers

with Kay Alberg, David Fraser, David Legge, Iain McLaren,
Jenny Mills, John Steele
and Lawrence who’ll give us much more
and Lawrence who’ll give us much more.

We give hearty thanks to all those who stood fast
good news from one part of the URC.
Their faith through the years meant that Forum could last

with Kay Alberg, David Fraser, David Legge, Iain McLaren,
Jenny Mills, John Steele
and Lawrence who’ll give us much more
and Lawrence who’ll give us much more.

Now each day will be different, with plenty to do
good news from one part of the URC.
there’s singing and dancing, and platefuls to chew

with Kay Alberg, David Fraser, David Legge, Iain McLaren,
Jenny Mills, John Steele
and Lawrence who’ll give us much more
and Lawrence who’ll give us much more.

We’ve sewing and scrabble, there’s music to hear
good news from one part of the URC.
but I won’t say what else we get up to down here

with Kay Alberg, David Fraser, David Legge, Iain McLaren,
Jenny Mills, John Steele
and Lawrence who’ll give us much more
and Lawrence who’ll give us much more.

The Forum is fellowship, learning and fun
good news from one part of the URC.
If it hasn’t continued, what would they have done

with Kay Alberg, David Fraser, David Legge, Iain McLaren,
Jenny Mills, John Steele
and Lawrence who’ll give us much more
and Lawrence who’ll give us much more.
