We value the mixed economy of traditional choral and congregational music alongside more contemporary forms of worship music. There are opportunities for choral singers to be involved on a regular, frequent, or more occasional basis as follows.

1115 choir

On a weekly basis an SATB choir leads congregational singing at the 1115 service, with occasional choir-only items (eg Rutter or homegrown anthems).  Repertoire ranges from traditional hymnody through lyrical worship songs, with music from contemporary composers such as Bernadette Farrell, Stuart Townend and Keith Getty. 

Most singers in this choir are able to participate weekly, but we welcome those who could contribute less frequently.  We usually rehearse in church from 1930-2115 on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month, and at 1045 on Sundays before each 1115 service. 

We'd love to welcome new regular members, so do get in touch if this might be you.

Young Singers

This is an occasional group that sings at special festival services (currently Christmas & Easter). Age range is approximately 7-14.

Special events

The 'St Andrew's Singers' is an occasional choir, which comes together at Christmas and for other special choral events throughout the year. The choir is made up of the core 1115 choir, joined by other singers from St Andrew's, friends, family and the wider community. 
This Easter you are warmly invited to 'Come and Sing' Stainer's Crucifixion. Further details can be found here.
