Church Choir

All Saints is fortunate to still have a robed choir to support the services week by week. Currently this is an adult choir, but in time we hope to re-introduce children to enhance the singing and ensure that the choral tradition lives on into the future.

The Choir is affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music and takes part in local events provided by the RSCM Area Committee.

We practice in Church every Thursday evening, from 7.30pm, under the leadership of our Organist and Choirmaster Mike Jones. We are enthusiastic in our singing and worship and enjoy sharing fellowship together.

The Parish Church Choir is always on the look-out for new members. You don’t need previous experience, nor is reading music necessary, just a love of singing.
Give us a try………..

The Organ

In 2015 the Parochial Church Council took the decision to extensively rebuild the three manual Westmorland Organ (originally by Makin Organs). The organ was originally installed in the early 1980’s but had become outdated and unreliable.

The rebuild was carried out by Phoenix Organs (Darwin) in October 2015 and the opening recital was given by Prof. Ian Tracey (Organist Titulaire – Liverpool Cathedral) in March 2016.

A full specification of the organ is provided below.
