We have a very enthusiastic singing group in the parish. Our mission is to support the sung prayer of the community at the main 10 a.m. Sunday Mass and all other special liturgical celebrations, which are at the heart of our spiritual lives.
Each week the choir meet to prepare the songs, chants and hymns for the upcoming celebrations, while at the same time acquiring musical skills and learning how to sing. It’s hard work, but there’s lots of fun and laughter as well as plentiful cakes and biscuits.
Our group is open to all, and it’s a great way of meeting people and getting involved in the parish community. We have members of all ages, ranging from 7 to 88, with everything in between! We are particularly proud of our youngsters who formed part of the Choir that sang at the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics.
New members are always very welcome (particularly tenors and basses!). No previous singing experience is required.
Rehearsals are held in the church:
- Adults – Wednesdays, 7:30 to 9 p.m.
- Youngsters – Thursdays, 6 to 7 p.m. (teens stay until 7:30 p.m.)
If you would like to join in you can just turn up or call Mag Shepherd for further information, on 07968 963511.
