St Mary's of Nazareth

West Wickham


St. Mary of Nazareth Church Choir

{affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music (RSCM)}

The Service Music at St. Mary’s is led and supported by a small but effective church choir of 7 – 10 members for the main morning service, which is normally a Eucharistic service except when once a month, a non-Eucharistic “Morning Praise” all age worship is substituted.

Choir practices are normally held on Friday evenings, except during August, from 7.15pm to around 8.15pm. The choir leads the hymn singing and service settings in routine and special services, and contributes when requested to lead singing at weddings, funerals or special occasions.

St. Mary’s choir is actively involved in West Wickham Choir, with singers from other churches and choirs in the locality, under the umbrella of “Churches Together in West Wickham”. We welcome additional members of the congregations and the community to take part in other works, recently ranging from Karl Jenkins’ “The Armed Man” to Samuel Coleridge Taylor’s “Hiawatha’s Wedding Feast.

The choir of St. Mary’s Church welcomes members of the former St. Francis’ Church choir to join in our Joint services, which are held monthly in alternate churches, and this is a successful long-term collaboration within our Joint Benefice.

Anyone wishing to join the choir should contact the Musical Director/Organist to discuss an appropriate for joining in. All are welcome, subject only to the RSCM minimum age of 7 years.

Please email (or telephone 020 8650 8389) to discuss joining or for information.
