Choir and music group
Our combined adult and childrens' choirs help lead the worship every Sunday at the morning service, and sing at other special events. The children practice from 6.15-7.15pm on Fridays, with additional training for smaller groups after the Sunday morning service. The adults practise from 7.30-9.30 on Fridays.
The organ is a fine instrument. For those with a technical interest, follow this link for the specification.
One regular special event is the Good Friday augmented choir, which welcomes temporary members to perform a devotional work. In recent years we have enjoyed Stainer's "Crucifixion", Handel's "Messiah", and Bach's "Matthew Passion".
Additional musicians (drummers, violinists, flautists, guitarists, solo voices, etc...) regularly join the keyboard to help lead the contemporary songs in our services.

Their Christmas Spirit gig in December 2016 raised funds for the church's main charity the Mahalia Aran Trust, and had a packed hall singing and dancing the night away.
