Who are they?

Our Choir

Each Sunday, our choir leads the congregation in singing and usually presents an anthem for our enjoyment and edification.

Then twice a year (most years), the choir, along with other singers, present two cantata – one at Christmas Time and one at Easter Time.  What a blessing they are!

So, lets meet the choir:
