The choir has always played an integral part here at St. George’s Parish Church.
The choir has been affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) since 1948 and follows the RSCM training scheme called ‘A Voice For Life’.
We lead both the sung and said parts of services providing a high standard of uplifting choral music under the musical direction of Tim Hawkins our Organist and Choir Director.
We take part in local festivals and events and sing at all major services here at St. George’s. Our busiest times being Christmas and Easter!
Being part of our choir offers some excellent benefits – all for free!
You will receive:
- Musical theory and practical training - Training in self-discipline and confidence - Social interaction with other members of the choir - Experience of singing a wide genres of Choral styles.
We are a very friendly group and new members are always very welcome regardless of religious background. However, since our primary role is to lead the music and spoken parts of the church’s liturgies, choir members must be willing to lead worship in these ways.
