Since its inception in 2006, the Hymn Festival has received widespread support from Anglicans and the wider community, and has become one of the signature events of The Diocese. A number of CDs have been produced, featuring favourite hymns and anthems of the Church. The objective of the Chorale is to bring together persons who are interested in keeping alive the singing of the traditional hymns of the Church, while at the same time singing more contemporary music, all to the glory of God. Over the years the Chorale has made donations to the Diocese of The Bahamas and The Turks & Caicos Islands.
