Thursday evenings St Philip’s Church Choir
Weekly practice in church at 7 p.m. for the men, 7.45 p.m. for all. The Choir contributes to worship at 9 a.m. on the 1st and 3rd Sundays each month, at 10.30 a.m. on the 2nd and 4th Sundays, and on special occasions.

Rehearsals are great fun, as well as uplifting. If you love singing, please consider making this commitment.


The church choir rejoices in another busy year. We comprise an enthusiastic group of 11, who prepare for special items and festival services. Commitment, flexibility and fellowship are important elements of our group and we would welcome new recruits of any age. Some members of the choir are musically trained, most are not. A love of singing is all that is required. We sing old and new songs of worship and enjoy a challenge. We are ably led by our organist and musical director, Paul Kennaugh, and his leadership is essential to our successes.
The choir sings at weddings (none this year, unfortunately), when we are joined by other members of the worshipping community. Special songs and hymns are prepared for harvest thanksgiving, the memorial and remembrance services, Christmas and the carol service, the Good Friday Meditation and Easter and Pentecost services.
We often receive special thanks and appreciation for our preparation and the standard of our singing. Our choral contribution is an essential element of our worship and we give our best in the name of our Lord.
