Children aged 6+ are welcome to join the Choir. All that we ask is that they have a reasonable level of reading ability.
Our junior choristers work towards the RSCM (Royal School of Church Music) Voice for Life Award Medal Scheme. This enables the children to learn how to read music as well as learning to understand other aspects of singing in a Church Choir.
Singing lessons can be arranged, completely free of charge, subject to agreement with the Director of Music.
Aside from the musical advantages that children get from being in a Choir, it also helps them to build other valuable life skills, such as confidence, discipline and team work.
Thursdays evening: 7.00pm – 8.00pm (Rehearsal in the Choir Vestry).
Sunday morning: 9.45am-11.30am (Rehearsal and Sunday morning Service).
Occasionally, the Junior Choristers are required to sing at some Sunday evening Services (max 1 per month) when there is a special Service or occasion.
The Junior Choristers aren’t expected to attend during School Holidays, although there are exceptions such as Christmas and Easter when the full Choir sings for specific Services.
Each Chorister is paid an honorarium each month for their attendance at rehearsals on a Thursday evening and Sunday Services.
