New Room Community Choir
The choir have broken up for the summer holidays, but rehearsals will return on Wednesday 11 September, 12noon-1pm in the chapel. The choir usually meet during term time on a Wednesday lunchtime.
You are welcome to join at any time! With a varied repertoire of pop, folk, rock, jazz, blues and gospel, and open to requests for your favourite tunes, the New Room Community Choir hopes to bring people together through singing. No auditions, no need to read music – everyone is welcome! For Meg and Judit, our choir leaders, the idea of the New Room Choir is to create a relaxed space to enjoy singing together and have fun learning new songs.

The next term runs from Wednesday 11 September to Wednesday 11 December 2019. We will have a break on Wednesday 30 October. Click here to download our term card.

Here are a few comments from those in the Community Choir:
“Very relaxing and enjoyable…..an oasis of well being in the middle of the week.”
“I always leave the session feeling more hopeful and uplifted.”
“It lifts my spirits. I have enjoyed making new friends.”
Serving our Community
Once or twice within each term the choir goes out to perform in our local community. This is a way of brightening the day of passers-by, as well as raising funds for local charities.
