Music & Choir

The musical tradition in worship at St John’s is strong and Sunday worship is led by a choir of children and adults. Music is drawn from the full breadth of the English tradition from the 16th century to the present day.

Rehearsals

Friday Evening

Young choristers 7pm | Adults 7.45pm

Our younger choristers are joined by the adults at 7.45pm, with everyone finishing at 8.30pm.

Sundays

9.30am for the 10.30am service

The choir rehearses at 9.30am for the 10.30am service which is usually a Parish Eucharist.

Being a chorister

Our younger choristers are paid monthly, based on attendance, as the church’s way of thanking them for their considerable time and effort. Upon leaving, several have gone on to pursue music at university and beyond.

Concerts

The choir gives at least one concert a year at St John’s, and is occasionally called upon for various ‘away’ trips and is always looking for more opportunities to sing away from home.

Being Sociable

Choristers also enjoy getting together socially with events including a summer barbecue to a bowling night in the winter, while, in addition, the youngsters have an annual treat all to themselves such as a pizza party.
