The Church Organ

St Andrew’s Church maintains a mixed robed choir of children and adults who sing at the 10.00am Eucharist on Sundays, at major festivals and civic services, and on other occasions throughout the year. During term time choir rehearsals take place on Fridays: 6.30pm for trebles and 7.00pm for adults. There is usually a short rehearsal on Sundays at 9.30am prior to the service.
The Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) Voice for Life training scheme supports the learning and progression of individual singers and recognises their achievements through the presentation of awards.
The choir welcomes new members, both children and adults, who enjoy singing. Previous experience of singing or playing an instrument would be an advantage, but this is not essential. All that is needed is enthusiasm and a willingness to learn.
The benefits of singing in the choir are considerable, and include the following:
- It provides a free musical education. Both children and adults learn ‘on the job’.
- It encourages team work and provides opportunities to make new friends
- Choir membership introduces singers to the considerable amount of music written for worship in recent years and in previous centuries
- Children will improve their reading, concentration, social skills and self-confidence which provides a head start for greater academic potential throughout school life and beyond
- Trebles receive a modest amount of pocket money for regular attendance, plus additional amounts for weddings

Bellringing is a team activity that stimulates the brain and helps keep you fit … it also makes a glorious sound! Many consider ringing to be their contribution to church life, others do it for the pure pleasure and the company it brings.
Welcome to the bellringing section of St. Andrew’s website. If you are not a bellringer I do hope that visiting this website page will encourage you to learn to ring and take up this unique and fascinating activity. If you are a bellringer and would like to join the team, please use the link to The Tower Captain below.

St Andrew’s has a thriving Junior Church. It meets every Sunday at 10am during school term time. The only exception is the second Sunday of the month when everyone stays in for our All Age Eucharist service. On these occasions Junior Church often helps to lead the service or to teach us by presenting work they’ve done in the preceding weeks!
On a ‘normal’ Sunday morning Junior Church assembles by the font at the back of the church. As the service begins they process in with the clergy and sit around the nave altar steps or in the first row of seats. After the first part of the service they go out through the link to the Church hall and divide into four groups.
This is the group for all in years 7 and above. The group meets in the choir vestry.
They may be X-treme but they are quite nice really.
