Our director Paul has been on leave and returned on Sun, July 28th. We wish to thank Elaine for her musical leadership through this time. She has been a great asset and we appreciate all the time she has put in to our services.
Anyone wishing to provide a musical interlude during the summer break for us, will be warmly welcomed.
In September we resumed with practices on Thursday nights at 7:00pm and warmups at 10:00am Sunday morning. We prepare anthems for every Sunday and festivals throughout the year. We welcome back Gary to the tenor section and Jackie to the sopranos! New voices always welcome.
This past year, after a wonderful Lessons & Carols service, we moved on to music for Lent, Easter and the Bishop's visit. While Paul is on leave we have welcomed Elaine to lead us this spring.
- Sunday morning warmup at 10:00am, we have an anthem every week.

We sing music responses during worship; for example the Agnus Dei (Lamb of God) arrangement by Peter Nardone, also Lord Hear our Prayer and 5 fold Amen.
This choir picture was taken once we received our new gowns. We have lost 2 members to cancer since that day, we will remember them.
