Music at St James is directed by Ethan McGrath, who joined us in 2016. The choir provides a wonderful choral education, especially for the younger members of the choir, several of whom have gained the RSCM Bishop’s and Dean’s award.


The choir currently has 16 members (7 children). We explore an ambitious range of music and, in addition to leading worship each week and at festival services, we perform occasional concerts including a range of lighter musical items.

Katherine and Caroline Bishop's AwardThe choir meets for rehearsal on Monday evenings: the younger members attend from 6:30pm and are joined by the adults at 7:00. We sing regularly at the 10:00am service each Sunday and have a short practice before each service, starting at 9:30am.

New members are always welcome.  Do come and join us if you enjoy singing.

The Music Group, which enriches the All-Age Eucharists, is led by Grae Worster. Everyone is welcome to come and help us make music, whether they can play a single chime bar, open violin strings or is musically proficient.
