There is a small choir at St. Peter’s, who’s main role is to lead the singing at the Sunday morning service. We have a one hour practice on Wednesday evenings during school term time. From time to time the choir is joined by members of the congregation and singers from Holy Trinity (Greenfield) for special services at St. Peter’s, St. James’ or Holy Trinity and occasionally we sing at weddings. The highlight of the choir year is the Christmas service of lessons and carols but it also makes a major contribution to the services in Holy Week and Easter. As a choir affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music, members may join singers from other choirs in the diocese and the Cathedral choir in the annual RSCM Festival service at St. Asaph Cathedral.
It isn’t necessary to be able to read music to join, only to enjoy singing together. Practices are informal and friendly and it’s understood that choir members may not be able to attend all the practices or all the services. The choir is like a singing club and is a really good way to become an instant member of the church community. We’re always pleased to welcome new members, men, women or children. There’s no audition, just turn up and see how you get on or ask the organist, John Blomfield for more information.
