Join the Church Choir


Our RSCM-affiliated choir sings for the weekly Sunday services, with a monthly Choral Evensong at which we are joined by a wider group of singers, as well as singing at important annual festivals like Christmas and Easter.

The choir is directed by Simon Shaw, Choirmaster - all music enquiries to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 07717 472974.
Our accomplished organist is Peter Spencer, who plays for rehearsals and services.

We welcome prospective new singers - whether regular or occasional.

We rehearse in the side chapel every Thursday at 7.30pm
If you like to sing, come along to try it out - what have you got to lose?

As well as local volunteer singers, we have a Choral Scholars scheme whereby local college students receive an honorarium towards their music tuition for singing with us.

Choral Scholar vacancies currently exist - make contact with Simon for more details.
