Music at St Georges

Music in the Parish of St George and All Saints

The Parish of St George and All Saints offers a full diverse range of services which brings with it an equally diverse range of music. 

 All age praise services include choruses and songs which appeal to everyone. Often they are accompanied by the resident worship band mixing acoustic with ecletic! Other services include a mix of traditional and contemporary hymns, and many of our services are usually sung to one of our communion settings, two of which were written by our organist Nicholas J Roberts.  Our schedule of morning services tend to be based around the Eucharist and this allows the small choir to present occasional anthems and also to introduce the congregation to new hymns and chants.

 

Evening services offer a variety of different forms. We hold regular evening services including Evening Prayer, Choral Evensong, to Taize in St George's Church, and Celtic Communion in All Saints Church Hall. 

Our Taize service revolves around prayer, peaceful contemplation time and hauntingly beautiful chants. The service is sung by candlelight.

The choir sings at most Sunday services and any other special events including weddings and funerals by arrangement.  The choir rehearses before Sunday services at 10am.  Further information can be sought from our organist and choirmaster, Nicholas J Roberts.
