St George’s Church Choir has been in continual existence since the consecration of the church in 1897, and to this day enriches the worship at St. George’s with music from all periods.
The Choir sings at the Parish Eucharist (10.15am) and at Sung Evensong (4.00pm) which take place most weeks with occasional variations, Choral Evensong is sung on the last Sunday of each month.
In current times it has become unusual for a church choir to be flourishing, although happily, this is not the case at St. George’s! Under the stewardship of our Acting Director of Music, James Hibbert, our numbers are steadily increasing and we are always delighted to welcome new singers. You may have sung in a church choir in the past, or have recently moved to the area, or just love music and singing. We do however, ask for commitment, attending a Choir Rehearsal on a Thursday Evening and Sunday Services.
The Choir is open to anyone, Children and adults, for more information about the Junior Choristers and Adult Choir please see below.
The Choir are not professionals, we just love to sing, we work hard, and of course have a strong faith and a good sense of humour.
Once or twice a year Choral Evensong is sung on Saturday Evenings either by the Choir or a visiting Choir this is either at St. George’s Church or at another Church as part of trips out to promote the Choir in the surrounding area.
