St Mary’s has a tradition of providing sung services each week which was put on hold over the last year. Now, at the end of 2021, we have re-instated the Choir who will sing at Parish Eucharist on the 1st and 3rd Sunday’s of the month at 10.30am. They are always pleased to welcome new members and whilst an ability to read music is an advantage, it’s not as essential as the willingness to learn. If you are interested in singing with us, please contact us
There are two organs in the Church. The first is a Pipe Organ with one manual and pedals at the back of the Church. The second organ is an Allen electronic organ, with outstandingly authentic sampled sound. This is used for most services to lead the singing and to accompany the choir.
We are still looking for a permanent organist to lead the music of the church, post the retirement of our previous organist and choirmaster but we are very lucky to have Denis Garne to fill this role in the meantime.
The applicant will need an enhanced DBS check and to comply with the C of E Safeguarding Policy.
Please contact the Churchwardens for more details of this role.
