The Music Group at St Mary's

The Music Group comprises of singers and instrumentalists led by our Director of Music, Peter Dart and his team.

Love singing or do you play an instrument?

Our Ensemble

Our ensemble consists of an organ, piano, guitar, bass & drums and if you play an instrument we would love to hear from you.

We sing a mixture of traditional and contemporary hymns/songs. New members are always welcome to join the team, for regular Sunday singing, or to augment the choir for special occasions such as Christmas.


Sunday Mornings

We usually meet before the Sunday 9.45am service for a short rehearsal.
