St Peter's has an excellent choral foundation. The choirs sing at Sunday services, major festivals and weddings. They are directed by Nicholas Robinson, assisted by Alex Flood.
Boys between 7-12 and girls between 7-17 are welcome to audition at any time to join the choir. If they are successful, they sing with the choir as probationers for about six months and then are admitted as full members. They have opportunities to earn medals and they are paid according to experience and commitment.
Boys rehearse on Tuesdays and Fridays, the men and the girls on Fridays. The boys and men normally sing at Mattins and Evensong, and the girls and men sing at Holy Communion.
Parents are important to the choir. Their commitment and hard work is very much appreciated. They often help with supervising the social life of the boys and girls, and there are several parties and barbecues through the year.
The All-age Orchestra accompanies the 9.30am Holy Communion service once a month, and also plays at the Christmas Eve Crib Service. It is directed by Alex Flood and anyone is welcome to join. Please contact Alex for details via the Church Office.
Our choirs are affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music.
