Choir & Music

Do you love sacred and choral music?  So do we!

Choral music is integral to our worship and each week our inter-generational sing at the 10.45am Sunday service, and for Choral Evensong at 6.30pm, usually held on the last Sunday of the month. For the dates of Choral Evensong, please see We hope you will be able to join us!

We sing and learn lots of varied and stimulating choral music from the Renaissance to the present day, and whatever age you are, we would love you to join us in our music making! If you are interested in finding out more, or to join, please contact our Director of Music, Rupert Forbes, via the office

The choir rehearsals are held in the church on a Thursday evening, and the choir enter through the Clergy Vestry door, (beside the Bowling Green, and ring the bell), or if it is open, through the hall.

The junior choir is for all children of school age, from age 8-18, and the adult choir is from aged 17+.

Thursday rehearsal times are:

Voice for Life for Junior Choristers: 6.15pm-7pm

Junior Choir: 7pm-8pm: Junior Choir

Adult Choir: 7.45pm-9.30pm

On Sundays, we rehearse at 10am in time for the 10.45am service, and when Evensong is being held, we rehearse at 5.30pm in time for the service at 6.30pm.

After the Thursday rehearsals, the adult choir members often go for a drink together.  And several times a year the choir sing at different churches and cathedrals around the country.

VOICE FOR LIFE: All Junior Choristers participate in the RSCM programme Voice for Life. Through this programme, taught by Sheila our Organist, choristers work through graded medals. Learning in a fun and interactive way, topics include how to read music, aural skills, and about Liturgy and the Christian Year.  For more information, please contact Sheila via the office:
