If you can sing, play an instrument or are otherwise interested in music, you will be welcome to join the Music Ministry of this Church where music has always played a prominent rôle. A full choir sings an anthem at each morning Service and a small orchestra often provides hymn accompaniment and occasional music, supplementing a team of regular organists.
As well as contributing to the regular Sunday worship, the Choir sometimes sings special services such as Evensong or set services for the various Church festivals and seasons. These often provide opportunities for people who do not always sing in the Choir.
Occasionally we have an Ad Hoc Choir morning for allcomers, meeting at 9.00am to learn an easy anthem for that day’s service. The coffee and croissant is a popular attraction on these mornings!
The Music Director is Mrs Wendy Sawyers
Organists and Pianists are:
Mrs Judith Miller, Mrs Carol Payne, Mr Phillip Sear and Mr Richard Sutcliffe
We also have a Singing Group of about twenty or so people who help lead the congregation in the singing of Contemporary Worship songs. We sing periodically to fit in with the Worship plans and prepare in the church on one or two Thursday evenings preceding such services.
You do not have to be an expert singer, or be able to read music, or have particular musical gifts to join, (although some are very musical). If you have a desire to praise God and to help lead the congregation so that unfamiliar Worship Songs become an inspiration to sing and helpful in worship, you are most welcome to join. The Singers are led by Peter Shilling.
