Choir


In an age where the church choir seems to be a dying art, particularly in rural areas like ours, we have continued to maintain a strong choral element to a number of our services aided by our Director of Music, Anne Ellis. The choir leads worship on the 1st, 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month in the 10.30am morning services and on the 3rd Sunday of the month in the evening at choral evensong. The 1st and 2nd Sundays, in particular, are choral services including introit and anthem.


In addition the choir are available to sing at weddings and do this many times over the course of each year, and also sing at the occasional concert.  Their repertoire is varied in style as well as being chosen to suit the season. The Church Choir also leads worship at the special Festivals of Advent, Christmas and Easter when there is scope for lots of exciting music.


They practice every Friday night and usually conclude the evening socially at The Bell over the road from the church. They are a lively and friendly group and always welcome new members.


Junior Choir


In addition to the adult choir we also have a junior choir that meets earlier on a Friday evening, with the older members staying on for a while to sing with the adults in part of their rehearsal. This is an excellent opportunity for children to receive training in the Voice for Life scheme and to participate in leading worship. The Junior Choir will also sing anthems on an occasional basis on the 4th Sunday of the month.
