Learning resources for the anthems can be found HERE.
Sing with us! New Opportunities Autumn 2021
This year we are looking forward to developing our singing ministries across all ages, styles and congregations. This year there are some BRAND NEW opportunities to get involved with as well as those events which have become a standard part of our worshipful life together.
BRAND NEW Children’s Choir: Friday afternoons in term time
Our children’s choir will give children the opportunity to lead worship and perform as part of our worship services. Meeting weekly during term time on Friday afternoons (refreshments at 4pm and then practising 4.30pm-5.30pm), each session will be full of fun, music and games too! At the outset we are welcoming children from school year 2 and upwards. If your child would like to join then please contact Chris Steynor: firstname.lastname@example.org.
BRAND NEW Daytime Choir: Thursdays 3.30pm – 4.45pm
The daytime choir welcomes anyone who would like to try choral singing for the first time, as well as those who are experienced and love being a part of singing communities. In addition to supporting worship at 11.15am services, we will also learn occasional items for performance (such as anthems). Even if you are not ready to sing in front of people yet, do join us for our sessions of music, community and friendship. We welcome those who wish to attend every week or more occasionally.
If you would like to join then please contact Chris Steynor: email@example.com.

About All Saints Music Ministry
Mainstream contemporary worship takes place at our 9.30am and 6.30pm (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.
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!
Youth & Children’s orchestra
Around 3-4 times a year we gather all of our younger people to create a youth & children’s orchestra. The orchestra is aimed primarily from Grade 2 and age 8 upwards, but members range from beginners to others who are members of prestigious orchestras and music schools. Our last event contained thirty musicians! Contact Chris to be put on the contact list for upcoming events.
