Love to listen to music? Our choir has amateurs and professionals who sing a wide range of music. Relax and enjoy music on a Sunday morning. Enjoy singing? We sing traditional and contemporary music in worship. For more adventure, try out a Thursday evening rehearsal. Or join choir for a season of music such as Christmas or Easter.
