The Parish Youth Choir was set up in 2010 to give children and young people aged
7-16 years an opportunity to learn to sing, to learn different styles of music, to
have fun, and to gain confidence through singing in services.
The choir normally sings on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month and meets for a
rehearsal once per week.
The choir is trained by Elvira Dorman, a fully qualified and experienced music teacher.

St Bart’s senior choir is a traditional SATB robed choir. We lead the singing at
the main morning service each week, usually including a short anthem, and enjoy singing
the more traditional BCP choral evensong at 6.30pm on 1st and 3rd Sundays (except
August – which is traditionally choir holidays!).
We are always on the lookout for extra voices so, whether you are a Soprano, Alto,
Tenor or Bass, can read music or not, you will be made most welcome. A bit of commitment
is expected – but not too much! We all take time off for holidays and know full well
that there are many other calls on our time that must occasionally take precedence.
Rehearsals (lasting about an hour) are held in church on Thursday evenings at 7.30pm.
Why not come along and have a sing with us and see how much you enjoy it (enter by
the chancel door), or have a chat with Peter or any member of the choir for further
We are affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music and occasionally are able to
participate in some of their courses and Festival Services, joining with singers
from many other churches around the Diocese.
The choir is also usually available by request to sing at weddings.
