John Wesley's New Room Community Choir

We are looking forward to the new term, why not join us for a taster session?

The choir meet between 12noon-1pm in the chapel every Wednesday lunchtime during term time. Email Kate - to book a taster session.

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 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.

“Enjoy everything about participating in the choir, wish it could be longer. An hour goes far too quickly.”

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.
