Music

GIRLSThere has always been enthusiastic music-making at St Barnabas, encouraged by the inspiring space, atmosphere and acoustic.

The church itself has a strong tradition of sung worship and a long history of excellent singing and organ music. From the consecration of the church services until the late twentieth century services were led by a choir of men and boys, directed by a succession of dedicated musicians.

Today St Barnabas supports a mixed choir of adults and children who lead our worship and strive to maintain the excellent standards for which St Barnabas has always been known.
The children rehearse during term time on Fridays, from 6.00-6.50pm, and sing with the adults once a month on a Sunday morning. Find out more about joining our Junior Section here.
The adults rehearse before services on Sundays, from 9.15-10.15am, and occasionally meet for a longer rehearsal once or twice a term.
New members of both choir are always welcome and we would be delighted to hear from anyone interested. For further details speak to our Director of Music, Tom Edwards, after a service, or email music@sbarnabas.org.uk. To find out more about Tom click here.
Throughout the year St Barnabas is the venue for much exciting music-making: The Jericho Singers, our local community choir, rehearse in church on Monday evenings, in term time. St Barnabas also hosts a wide variety of concerts throughout the year: from string quartets to brass bands, from choral societies to hoolies and more besides!
