Music and Worship

Throughout the year we hold a number of concerts featuring the choir or other musical groups such as the Canzonetta Singers and the Sands Singers.

KayGee play regularly at St. Michael’s. They consist of Keith Price and Geoff Cooper on guitar and vocals and Graham Jackson on vocals.They have released two CDs, ‘Be Still’ and ‘Echoes’, which have been sold to raise money for the new heating system recently installed in St. Michael’s and to update the existing facilities.

See our website for details of any forthcoming concerts.

St. Michael’s Parish Church has a well maintained and regularly played two manual pipe organ. Anne Cooke has been the full time organist since 1992.
