The Choir

The choir has always played an important part of the worship here at St. George’s Parish Church.

The choir has been affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) since 1948.

We lead both the sung and said parts of services providing a high standard of uplifting choral music under the musical direction of Tim Hawkins our Organist and Choir Director.

Being part of the choir offers some excellent benefits – all for free:

  • Musical training
  • Training in self-discipline and confidence
  • Social interaction with other members of the choir
  • Experience of singing a wide range of Choral repertoire 


We are a very friendly group and new members are always very welcome regardless of religious background. However, since our primary role is to lead the music and spoken parts of the church’s liturgies, choir members must be willing to lead worship in these ways.
