St John's choir singing for a wedding in Aylsham Parish Church
St John’s Church has a fine musical heritage of which we are very proud, and it is one which we hope to preserve for the benefit of our own as well as future generations.
Our robed choir is an important part of the church tradition. As well as singing at our regular Sunday Service, the choir has sung at special services and church festivals such as the Christmas Carol services held in the churches of Stansted, Birchanger and Farnham
They have sung at various venues including as far away as Aylsham in Norfolk.
Before the restrictions we had a successful youth choir working through the RSCM awards scheme. In addition to their weekly musical rehearsal they learnt about the Christian faith through activities and discussions. These junior members sang at the monthly All-age Service alongside the adult choir. Unfortunately the youth choir has not been able to meet during the pandemic.
Choral Worship 2021
The choir are now able to sing, with restrictions, at services. A small group sings the service setting and an anthem on a weekly basis at the 9.30 Parish communion.
