If you are 7 years or older and interested in joining our choir please contact Helen (tel: 875140 or e-mail or Reverend Elaine Bielby or speak to any chorister. We rehearse on Sunday mornings before church and sing at the 10.15 am service each Sunday, as well at weddings at St Helen’s and occasionally elsewhere and at other special services or occasions. We are particularly looking for men as well as boys or girls aged between 7 and 18. You do not need to know how to read music before you join and we do not require you to pass an audition.

We are very proud of our family involvement: currently we have 3 sets of sisters, 2 couples, 1 mother with 1 daughter and 1 with 2, 2 mothers with a son each, 1 father with 2 daughters, and 1 grandmother with grandson. Many others have had children, parents,  grandparents or siblings singing with them in the past, so if you are a family who would like to join us – please do – you will be most welcome, and if you know another family or individual who might be interested please pass this on.
