Music and Bells
We have a fine peal of ten bells. More information here.
As well as the choir, we have several talented instrumentalists and Chris Benham, a previous Director of Music, runs a professional (and profitable) weekly lunchtime concert series. Proceeds from this are used to support our musical work with all in full-time education. As we are a large church we also host several major concerts every year.
We strive to provide a wide variety of musical support to enrich the worship and life of the church, but always performed to the very best standard that we can achieve.
We are currently working on an expanding programme of musical outreach and have already run several very successful events over the last five years. There are more in the pipeline!
