Adult Choir

We are extremely proud of our choirs here at St Mary’s.

St Mary’s Adult Choir sings most Sundays in term time at either the 10am service or 6pm Caritas service as well as at special services and events.  They practice for an hour before the services and on Tuesday evenings and aim to enjoy making music together.
