Whats Involved?

Rehearsals The choir rehearses on Friday evenings - the younger members rehearse at 7.00pm before the adults join at 7.45pm, with everyone finishing at 8.30pm. On Sundays the choir rehearses at 9.30am for the 10.30am service- usually a Eucharist, with the exception of the second Sunday of each month, when it is Matins. At certain times of the year the choir sings at special services.

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.

Why Join the Choir?

"There is a huge feeling of satisfaction to be gained from the weekly performance of music which has been prepared to the highest possible standard. At the same time, it develops sight-reading, mathematical and communication skills and a tremendous sense of team spirit which, in turn, enables the entire church community to be drawn in and inspired by the combination of quality music and liturgy."  Chris Totney
