England has a great tradition of choral music - there have been Church Choirs for centuries. Many famous musicians began their careers in this way. From the start, St Peter's Church had a robed choir and an organ, and it has kept a strong choir ever since.
The choir at St Peter's is affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music, which encourages high standards of singing and offers training programmes to church choirs throughout the country.

Is it difficult?
Some new members are already good singers, others have no experience at all. If you are starting from scratch, the main thing you need is commitment; the rest comes with time. The choir is an ideal place to learn to sing and to read music, gently, gradually - and in a friendly group.
Some other questions
Do I, or my family, have to be church members already?
Certainly not: the choir welcomes people who are new to the Church, and their families.
