Carol Service Choir 2022
We are pleased to open the sign-up for this year's Carol Service Choir! This year the traditional Carol Services with take place on Sunday 11th December 3.30pm & 5.30pm,
with rehearsals at 8pm on the five preceding Fridays: 11, 18, 25 November, 2, 9 December. Each year we attract a choir of around 40 people, and we welcome all those who would like to take part, regardless of previous experience or confidence level. For the services there is a 'smart' dress code but it is not a 'robed' choir.

The choir booklet and online learning resources will be released soon - those who have signed up will be notified via email. In the mean time, do have a listen to the three beautiful anthems we're pleased to be singing this year! Links to Youtube videos are provided below.

About All Saints Music Ministry
Mainstream contemporary worship takes place at our 9.30am and 6pm (Cornerstone) services. The evening service is particularly focussed on getting our under-30s involved, although participation is open to everyone. There is a community of musicians who serve each congregation; if you can help lead us by singing or playing an instrument then do get in touch.
There is a choir who help lead the 11.15am service each week, rehearsing on Thursday afternoons at 3.30pm. We read from SATB parts although there is a range of reading ability among our members. If you appreciate traditional forms of worship and classical music, then our choir could be the place for you.
In September 2021 we launched the All Saints Children’s Choir to give children the opportunity to lead worship and perform as part of our worship services.
The choir meets on Wednesday afternoons and is split into two age groups: the Junior Choir for Years 1-2 and the Senior Choir for children in year 3 and upwards. The Junior Choir meets from 4-4.45pm and the Senior Choir 5-5.45pm during term times. If your child would like to join then please contact Chris Steynor: email@example.com.
At Christmas and Easter we tend to gather larger groups of singers and musicians to enhance our singing for the main Christian festivals. Watch out for notices nearer the time.
