The Junior Choristers – a NEW choir for youngsters starting in september! If you’re aged 4 to 6 and love singing and movement, come and join us! We will be meeting on the first Sunday of most months from 09:15-10:15 in the Choir Vestry at St John’s singing for All Age services, at Christmas (Christingle) and Easter (Palm Sunday) from October 2019 onwards. Our aim is to create a fun, friendly, social and inclusive environment where the youngest members of our community can sing, move and hear music, providing a fantastic foundation for a lifelong love of music whilst also giving them opportunities for performance and liturgical offerings of their very own in our worship throughout the year. Although this is primarily for 4-6 years old, parents and younger/older siblings are welcome too! For more information or to register contact the Director of Music.
