Choir

Hello and welcome to the Choir section of our Church website.  We currently number a dozen voices and it is our privilege to lead the congregation in the songs and hymns of praise which are of course a key part of our gathering for worship week by week throughout the Christian year. Using as our regular Hymnal CH4 we sing together a wide range of hymns which range across the centuries from traditional to modern, from the hallowed and highly familiar right through to the current and contemporary.

The term Old is aptly chosen for our Church and our worship since historians and archaeologists trace Christian worship on our site all the way back to the 5th century! It is remarkable to think , as we raise our voices and lift our hearts on a Sunday morning, that we are part of that great unbroken tradition of praise on the same site.

In addition to leading the praise in hymns old and new the Choir sings Introits and Anthems throughout the year, special music which often marks the special seasons of the Church calendar. Our membership is currently growing and we can assure new members of a warm welcome if they would like to come and join us. There is no audition, so all that is required is to have both a voice and enthusiasm !

We would like as a Choir to send our warm greetings to all our fellow singers and worshippers in the Church at large who may read about us here. To use an old phrase : “Sursum Corda“, “Lift up your hearts!”
