We value the mixed economy of traditional choral and congregational music alongside more contemporary forms of worship music. There are opportunities for choral singers to be involved on a regular, frequent, or more occasional basis as follows.
On a weekly basis a small choir lead congregational singing at the 1115 service, and pop in the occasional choir item. Repertoire ranges from traditional hymnody through lyrical worship songs to music from the Iona & Northumbria communities, and music from contemporary Roman Catholic composers, such as Bernadette Farrell & Christopher Walker.
Most singers in this choir are able to participate weekly, but we welcome those who could contribute less frequently. We tend to rehearse in church from 1930-2130 on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month, and at 1045 on Sundays before each 1115 service (please check the website calendar for details). We'd love to welcome new regular members, so do get in touch if this might be you.
