St Mary & St Michael’s Church  Benefice Choir

The choir is made up of representatives from the ADRU parishes and is available to sing at weddings, special events and Benefice Services. It is open to all who love to sing and practices include general chorister-training. Our constant aim is to improve our standards and apart from hymn-singing we enjoy working at anthems and famous choral pieces.

We rehearse on alternate Mondays and Tuesdays at 2.30 p.m. currently at Urswick Church though the hope is to occasionally hold practices at other venues around the Benefice for the sake of those who would like to join us but cannot travel so easily. (Please telephone Kath on  01229 584178 if you are interested.)

The reason that we do not meet on a regular day of the week is to accommodate as many singers as possible because the choir is made up of active and busy people. They visit the sick and infirm at home and those in care, they are involved in helping in the community, are representatives in national associations and groups and are generally on hand to give support whenever and wherever needed.

In fact, they fulfil the words of our regular closing choir practice prayers which are as follows:-

“Heavenly father grant that what we have sung with our lips, we may believe in our hearts and

show forth in our lives, for Jesus Christ`s sake” Amen.

The lives of our choristers reflect that prayer, hence the staggered practice times.

 A warm welcome is assured to all who would like to join us.

Kathleen Miller. (Musical Director & Organist)
