"The Music Group" comprises singers and instrumentalists, and meets about an hour before the 10.30 service to rehearse the music. New members are always welcome to join. At special occasions (eg Christmas, Easter, Village Festival) the choir is augmented by willing volunteers.
The songs and hymns selected for services for the current month or two are listed in a file which can be downloaded here.
Concerts and other musical activities in the Parish
Apart from providing the music for the worship in our churches, there is a programme of other musical activities using performers from within the Parish and visiting musicians.
St Mary's Annual Concert - 2017
A most successful concert, involving around 50 performers, was enjoyed by an audience of over 200. Over £1000 was raised for the 21st Century appeal fund.
The 2018 Annual Concert will be held on Saturday 17th November
Christmas Carol Service
The Carol Service is an annual opportunity for the regular singers to be joined by others to create a choir of 40 or more to lead the music a week or so before Christmas. Watch this space for dates and details of rehearsals for the 2018 Service
CONCERTS FROM OUTSIDE
St. MAry's can be used as a venue for concerts from local schools or other music groups in the area. Please be in touch if you wish to consider this option.
