St. Mary's of Nazareth 

West Wickham



St Mary’s Church Choir 

{Affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music (RSCM)}

The Service Music at St Mary’s is led and supported by a small but effective church choir of 7-10 members for the main morning service, which is normally a Eucharistic service except once a month, a non-Eucharistic "Morning Praise" all-age worship is substituted.

Choir practices are held on Friday evenings, except during August, from 7.15pm to around 8.15pm. The choir leads the hymn singing and service settings in routine and special services.

St Mary's choir, with S Francis' choir, is actively involved in the West Wickham Choir, with other local churches, under the umbrella of "Churches Together in West Wickham". We welcome additional members of the congregations and community to take part in larger works, which have so far included Fauré’s “Requiem”,"The Armed Man" by Karl Jenkins and other works for specific special services.

The choirs of St Mary and St Francis also combine monthly to lead the joint services held in alternate churches, and work well together.

Interested potential choir members should contact the Musical Director/Organist to discuss an appropriate time for joining in. All are welcome, subject only to an RSCM lower age limit of 7 years – for the younger recruits, reasonable competence in reading is necessary.

There is a small Music Advisory Group which meets 4 times per year to discuss the music programme and to choose hymns/other music for services.
