We sing for the praise of God so we do our best whether the congregation is large or small. Every Sunday we lead the singing of the hymns and enhance the worship by singing an introit (usually a short musical composition) before the service and an anthem during the giving of communion.
We sing a great variety of music ranging from early plainsong to contemporary.
We practice on Wednesdays from 5.00pm to 6.00pm and from 9.00 to 10.00am before the Sunday morning service (except on a first Sunday of the month where we meet at 10am just after the Bridges family service).
Usually on the third Sunday in the month we sing a choral evensong at 6.30pm preceded by a short rehearsal at 5.30pm. This sometimes changes, so check with the Parish Office 01328 862268.
We also sing for special services during the church year, such as Carols by Candlelight, the Advent service ‘From Darkness to Light’, Compline each evening during Holy Week, a Good Friday afternoon service ‘Cross of Christ’ and for weddings when requested.
We are affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music both nationally www.rscm.com and regionally www.rscm-norfolk.org.uk and sing annually with other affiliated choirs in Norwich Cathedral for the Diocesan Choral Festival www.norwich.anglican.org . We also sing with other choirs in the diocese, such as the King’s Lynn Minster.
We have a well-balanced four part choir and have an average attendance of fifteen. We have young choir members who sing with us and some who have gone on to do Music, as well as more experienced singers, and would welcome any singers who enjoy choral music to the choir. We value everyone’s contribution. We welcome visiting choristers to join us for worship, please let us know in advance!
The choir also do several special services throughout the year these include Carols by Candlelight, Advent service ‘From Darkness to Light’, Compline each evening during Holy Week and Good Friday afternoon service ‘Cross of Christ’. It is a service at 2pm on Good Friday of hymns and readings created by the RSCM on the Good Friday theme.
