Church choir

My name’s Laurence, I’m the mascot for the St Laurence Church Choir, and I’m here to tell you a bit about the choir and what we do every week.

The choir at St Laurence is about 40 strong, half adults and half children, and we are able to present a good-sized four-part choir at most services.

The role of the choir is to support the worship at any sung service.

To this end we practice faithfully and hard every Friday evening; the juniors from 6.30 - 7.15pm, combined from 7.30 - 8.30pm, and adults from 8.30 - 9.00pm.

The aim of the choir is to sing well and have fun doing so.

It is impossible to praise the Lord and be miserable at the same time, so laughter is often heard during practices as well as singing at services.

The choir is affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music and we follow their training scheme for choristers, young and not quite so young.

The training is progressive and progress can be seen in the colour of medal ribbon worn by choristers. Light blue, dark blue and red ribbons are awarded in-house. Green and purple ribbons represent Bishop’s awards. The examinations for these awards are very stringent and we are pleased to have many Bishop’s Choristers in the choir, all of whom gained their awards as members of this choir.
