There is such a lot on offer musically at St Michael’s. Whether you are young or old, a singer or an instrumentalist, or just someone who enjoys listening to music, there is something for you! Music is the lifeblood of our worship at St Michael's, and is integrated into all of our principal services. Coming together with organ, choir or band, we can worship God with one voice. If you would like to join any of our groups, please do get in touch.


Our more traditional 9.30am service is led by the Parish Choir.


The 11.15 service is more contemporary. If you play an instrument you may wish to get involved in our band at the 11:15 service. The band plays includes players of any ability, young or old, so do get in touch.
On the first and third Sundays of each month, the Parish Choir and St Michael's Singers lead services of Choral Eucharist and Choral Evensong. On all other Sundays at 6.30pm there is a service of Evening Prayer with hymns and congregational responses.
