Church Music

Music is an important aspect of worship in Church and the Choir and Music Group are committed to ensuring this happens. 

St. John the Baptist Church Choir is a sixteen-strong friendly group of people who enjoy leading the singing at Communion services, Quiet Time and Sung Evensong each month as well as weddings and funerals if requested.  We practise on a Friday night between 7 and 8pm in the Choir Vestry and rehearse music for each Sunday as well as preparing for special church services.  These include the Christmas Carol service, Midnight Mass as well as the Easter services on Good Friday and Easter Day.

The Music Group is responsible for leading the music at each month’s Café Church service.  We have a wonderful mix of instruments from drums to bassoon, guitar to double bass.  We practise before the service each month and enjoy playing a wide selection of hymns, modern and traditional.  We also take part in special musical events throughout the year.

We would be delighted to welcome new members to both the Choir and Music Group.  Please contact Julia Burgess on 01329 832441 or email for more information.
