Midweek Choral Services:

On major feast days there will more than likely be a Choral Service at St. George's Church, beginning at 7.30pm, usually this will take the form of a Sung/Choral Eucharist, sometimes the Service may be Choral Evensong, depending on the feast day. Music for these Services will be included in the monthly Music list above as and when they arise.

Saturday Services:

Occasionally, Choral Evensong is sung on Saturday evenings throughout the year, either by the Choir or another visiting Choir. The Service time may vary depending on the needs or to meet the requirements of a visiting Choir.
As and when Service music is known it will be included as soon as possible in the month's Music list above.
Services will appear on the website homepage as and when they arise.

Sunday Services:

The Choir sing at morning Eucharist at 10.15am every Sunday except when we have the All Age Service on the 2nd Sunday each month - Choir members usually join the Singing Group for this particular Service

Evensong is sung at St. George's every week at 6.30pm, with Choral Evensong usually on the last Sunday of the month.
 
Occasionally there are slight changes to the normal pattern of Evening Worship on the 3rd Sunday of each month - i.e. Memorial Services, BCP Choral Eucharist or one of the termly 'Healing Service' at which the Choir leads congregational hymn singing and usually sings at least 2 Anthems.
