JOIN OUR CHOIR
Can you sing in tune? Do you enjoy singing with others? Could you attend a choir practice on a Friday evening from 6 pm and Sunday services and weddings?
If you answered yes to these, would you like to join our Choir? We have a junior choir (7+) and a senior choir, so all ages welcome.
The senior choir sings at the 11 am Sunday service (and Evensong when it returns), plus most weddings and the occasional funeral.
If you can read music that will help, but isn't necessary.
Our Director of Music and Choir Master, Mr Kim Rawson would love to hear from you, please contact him on email@example.com
