Trinity URC Choir:




Under the Reformed order of 1578, the organ could not be tolerated playing during a worship service as it was considered a distraction from the spoken word, but the church organist could apply his formidable talents just before or after a service in a Voluntary.

Welcome to Trinity Choir and Music Group

Trinity URC has a strong tradition of choral singing and has a thriving choir, together with a team of three organists. Our organ has been refurbished in recent years, and hosted a recital by Paul Hale, Rector Chori of Southwell Minster, Nottingham.

Our choir comprises:
Female: 8 sopranos, 3 altos
Male: 4 tenors, 5 bass

Our choir leads the singing at Sunday morning worship and regularly sings Introits or Anthems. Choir practice from September to Easter is at 8 pm on Thursdays. In addition, the choir forms the nucleus of a carol singing group who visit the sick and housebound members of our church at Christmas time.

If you would like to join our choir, please contact our Musical Director,

Martin Ashcroft
