A new Junior Choir for children


A new Junior Choir for children will be starting in the church on Friday 21st September at 4.30 (to end at 5.15) and will meet every Friday afternoon in term time.

The choir is for children of First School age who like singing.
It’s a way of getting some music education while having the fun of learning lots of songs!













Parents or accompanying adults can stay while the choir practises - they can listen and help themselves to tea or coffee and biscuits – and for the last few minutes, we’ll show what we’ve been learning to sing!


If you have a child who would like to join, you can email Ann Burgess or come along on Friday 21st September to register your contact details. If you can’t manage the first day, don’t worry- you can join in later. If your child does not fall into the 4-9 age range, but is interested in singing, please contact me to talk about it.


The junior choir will be called “The Scallop Shells”. In the Middle Ages, pilgrims, wearing a scallop shell as a badge, travelled on foot to holy places hoping to get closer to God. For us, singing in Christ Church’s sacred space has a spiritual dimension.  


 The choir will be directed by Ann Burgess. (Ann is DBS checked; a music graduate with a PGCE in Music; experienced music teacher and mum; plays the organ and piano; Director of Music at Christ Church; plays for singing at Christ Church School on Wednesdays)


We’ll sing a variety of music, (children’s songs, carols, folk songs, spirituals, chants, church anthems etc) leading to singing in occasional church services and little concerts.
