Choir and Music Group
Music forms an important and enjoyable part of our worship at All Saints’ Church, Appley Bridge.
The church has a robed choir for some services. This has been a long standing tradition in our church. The choir sings some of our hymns and prayers in four part harmony.
For most of our services, we have hymns and songs from the most recent edition of Mission Praise. We are fortunate to have a very accomplished musician, Linda Scott, leading our choir – she plays the organ and keyboards and flute. We also have Philip Green playing keyboards and flute, and have established a new musical / worship group which involves the talents of some of the younger members of our congregation.
We are recruiting – you are welcome to join us.
Our growing All Age Choir and music group rehearses monthly on Thursday evenings.
7.00 – 7.45 pm music practice with guitars and any other instruments which are brought along.
7.45 – 8.30 pm is choir practice for singing.
Adults and children aged 9+ who sing and/or play instruments are most welcome. The group has members of all levels of music ability from beginners to expert and a range of instruments too. See our coming soon page for dates and details.
About Our Church Organ
We found out on Saturday 25th August that our church organ is quite rare and special. Chris Lawton, an organ enthusiast, had seen a picture of it if on our website and came to visit us to play the organ.
We have found out that the organ dates back to the early 1960’s. It was obtained by All Saints’ Church in 1990. The technology used in the organ is vintage. It uses an electro-mechanical method to generate the tones. It is still in full working order and it is used most Sundays.
