Organist Emeritus @ Queen's Cross

Mr Geoffrey Atkinson retired as Master of Music at Queen’s Cross Church in January 2019. Geoffrey was appointed to the position in 1977 and completed nearly 42 uninterrupted years as Church Organist and Director of the Choir. His musical legacy in and beyond Queen’s Cross Church is enormous and his massive contribution to the life of the church was marked in a special service on Sunday 20th January 2019.

The following is an extract from the Minute of the Kirk Session dated 20th November 2018:

“Mr Atkinson’s contribution to the life of Queen’s Cross Church has been without parallel. His musical legacy will be considerable and his efforts over many years in promoting high quality music and artistic endeavour in Queen’s Cross worship and beyond has been extraordinary. This is a time of change for our church but it should be recorded that Queen’s Cross is hugely in debt to Mr Atkinson, in particular for his leadership/mentorship of the choir and his support of the several ministers we have had during his period of tenure. The Kirk Session is minded to honour Mr Atkinson at the time of his last service.”

The Kirk Session has agreed that, in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the life of Queen’s Cross Church in its sacred mission to glorify God in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, Mr Atkinson be accorded in perpetuity the title of:

“Organist Emeritus to Queen’s Cross Church”

In the name of the Kirk Session dated 20th January 2019
