choir meets to practice every Thursday evening in the church at 7:30pm.
We lead the congregation in the hymns and sung elements of each Sunday
morning worship, and sing an anthem every week. Our repertoire
includes the widest range of choral music, from Byrd and Tallis up to
Iona pieces and Margaret Rizza.
On the last Sunday of each month we
sing at a choral evensong, which gives us a chance for some psalm
singing. Finally, we sing at certain Festival days throughout the year,
notably Carols by Candlelight at Christmas, and special services to
mark Ascension Day and All Saints Day - the patronal festival of the
church. The choir is always keen to welcome new singers.
If you are interested then please contact Stephen Preece by phone in the evenings or weekends on 01256 893320.
Church Band: Our church band is called One Accord. We play once a month at Praise Communions
and some special occasions, bringing the music of songwriters such as
Stuart Townend and the Gettys to our worship. At the moment we consist
of 2 guitars, a bass, a flute, a piano and two singers, and we are always glad
to welcome other musicians to join us.
