Old Parish




The Old Parish Church’s choir members, and organist/choirmaster, Colin Thomas, throw open the doors of welcome to anyone who would like to join us as we sing our hearts out. And believe it or not, you don’t even have to be a great singer! We’ll squeeze a note out of you - gently! We are a very friendly bunch and meet on Thursday evenings for practice, which is usually a lot of fun. All ages are welcome!

What do we do?
Lead the singing on a Sunday morning and sing an anthem and an introit from music old and new. At Christmas and Easter, we lead a special service where we perform a cantata.

When do we practise?

Thursday evenings from 7.30-8.30pm in the Lower Hall from September to the end of April/start of May, when we take a break for the summer.

Do I have to read music?
No, it's not necessary - we all learn the music together.

Do I have to be at every practice?
No, but as many Thursdays as you can. If you don't want to commit to being a full-time member, why not come along from October to be part of the augmented choir for Christmas. Several people who have done this have become part of the regular choir.

Can I talk to someone to get more information?
Speak to Colin, our organist after the service on a Sunday, or any choir member.

What else do we do?
We have a night out every year. Practices are not just hard work - we try to keep them as light-hearted as possible. Why not come along to a practice to see what we do? No obligation! Contact Colin Thomas for further information, or use the website's 'Contact Us' button.

Our new church organ, seen below, was successfully installed on Thursday 19th December 2019 and is now being played at church services. The organ replaces the older Allen organ which, after 30 years, was getting to the point where maintenance and replacement of faulty electronic parts were becoming problematic. To hear it Click Here
