The Choir Appeals?


“Singing is good for you. - Many studies done over a number of years have focused on the health benefits of singing, and the evidence is overwhelming.

o Singing releases endorphins into your system and makes you feel energized and uplifted. People who sing are healthier than people who don’t.

o Singing gives the lungs a workout,

o Singing tones abdominal and intercostal muscles and the diaphragm, and stimulates circulation.

Singing makes us breathe more deeply than many forms of strenuous exercise, so we take in more oxygen, improve aerobic capacity and experience a release of muscle tension as well.”

I don’t know if you have noticed but over the last few years the Choir has got smaller and smaller. We are now just 4 ladies and 2 men which is OK but gets a bit tricky when even one or two are missing. Now, we have the bad news that one of us is about to move to sunny Lincolnshire which will make it tricky for her to attend rehearsals and sing at all those special events as well as normal services.

So, this is an appeal for more of you to join us, rehearse with us and even sing at the services. It is not tricky. You do not have to read music and you probably know most of what we sing anyway.

No audition required and we can find a set of robes to fit you.

What more can I say? Just come along and sing with us and add enjoyment to your life and those of others
