When: Practice Wednesday in the robing room at 20.00
The choir leads worship at our 10am (11:30am on 1st Sunday of the month) and 6:30pm traditional services each Sunday.
The choir was formed in September 1962 to lead worship in the newly established St. Pauls Church. Services were initially held in renovated army huts which served as temporary accommodation before moving to the present Church for its dedication and consecration in January 1964.
The choir is a traditional SATB (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, and Bass) format and has been leading choral worship at morning, evening and Holy Communion services since its inception. Additionally the choir has been privileged to lead and add dignity to the many special, civic and festive occasions within the life of our Church. Each year the choir joins with other choirs in the Derriaghy Rural Deanery to take part in the Annual Choral Festival.
During 1980 a junior choir was formed under the leadership of Audrey Graham. Like the senior choir they were robed and added greatly to the popularity of our family services. Sadly due to declining numbers the junior choir was disbanded.
Over the years the choir has played a major part in the social life of the parish by providing musical events and concerts for various charities and missions and in particular raised enough money to upgrade the church organ in 2000. Today the choir has ~18 members and still leads morning and evening worship as well as special services.
Currently the post of organist and choir master is vacant and open for applicants. We are always looking for new members of all abilities and would particularly encourage younger members. Why not come and join us!
Choir Secretary: Mrs Jean Hazley
