The Choirs of St. Jude’s

The 11 O’clock choir is an accomplished and enthusiastic group of volunteer singers with a current membership of 31 . The choir maintains a high standard, and has long enjoyed a reputation for musical excellence. Entry is by informal audition. The repertoire focuses on the very finest music in the Anglican choral tradition, with settings of the mass, canticles and motets from the 16th century to the present. This choir also takes part in our monthly Choral Evensong, an annual Remembrance Day Requiem, Carol service, Palm Sunday Cantata and May choral concert. In 2015 the Choir toured to Ripon Cathedral, England UK, for a week as choir in residence. There are a limited number of places available in this choir from September, our maximum membership is 35.

- Rehearsals every Wednesday from 7:00 – 8:00 pm September – June.
- Sunday Eucharist at 9:15am (rehearsal at 8:45 am)
The 9:15 Choir is open to anyone who enjoys singing, without audition. We currently have 14 members and we would be happy to welcome more! This choir supports the congregational singing at this service which supports the family programmes ministry of the parish. In addition the choir offers a short anthem. The music is always attractive and varied, and not difficult to learn.
