St Nicolas' Choir
We are a mixed group of about 20 children, teenagers and adults who enjoy singing. We use our singing to help us and others to worship God in church.
Membership of the choir is quite hard work, but it's very enjoyable and it gives you a chance to make good friends of all ages. Younger members also receive musical training and teaching about the Christian faith. Everyone receives a little money to cover expenses.
Parents will be reassured to learn that the adult choristers have all have been "CRB-checked", as the law and church policy require. There is regulated first-aid cover and a Choir Constitution that even includes an anti-bullying policy, although it has only had to be used twice in 40 years!
We sing at the main service every Sunday (10.30am) as well as at some evening services (6.00 pm). We rehearse on Fridays (see below). We also sing at a lot of Weddings on Saturdays between May and October each year.
We sing hymns and psalms with everyone, and pieces for choir alone (anthems) and we join in the spoken parts of the service. At some services, there is instrumental music too.
