Music has always been highly valued by the worshipping community that makes up the people of God at All Hallows. Whether your particular talents are instrumental or vocal, there is plenty for you to take part in.

You can be sure that we would love to hear from you, and indeed, HEAR YOU, if you would like to develop and use your interest and skill in music at All Hallows.

All Hallows' Church Choir

Our robed choir, currently of about 25 singers, is made up of a junior treble section of boys and girls and an adult section of sopranos, altos, tenors and basses. Choir practices are held on Thursdays, from 19.15 to 20.15 in church.

The choir usually sings 2 or 3 times each month at the 10.15 Sunday service and 2 or 3 times at the evening Sunday service at 18.30. There is no need for every choir member to sing at every service: we normally have between 15 and 20 people. The repertoire is varied, ranging from Tudor anthems to music from the Taizé and Iona traditions, and includes settings of the evening canticles and a variety of modern anthems, songs and hymns.

All Hallows is affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music. Choristers of all ages are encouraged to participate in training schemes and to support regional and national events.

Membership of the choir is open to all, young or old, who wish to 'sing praises with understanding'. Please do consider joining the choir if you have enjoyed singing in the past, perhaps at school or at another church. Junior singers, boys and girls from Year 3 upwards, are particularly welcome and their parents should, in the first instance, contact Stephen Davies, our director of music. Stephen can be contacted in church or by using the link on the right-hand side of this page.

All Hallows' Worship Band

The All Hallows' Worship Band has expanded and flourished in recent years and now has a regular and highly valued place in the monthly cycle of worship. The Band normally introduces and leads the worship at the 10.15 service on the second and fourth Sundays of each month, and occasionally participates in other services as well as monthly Prayer & Praise evenings.

Membership is open to all ages who have a love of making music together whilst worshiping God. Some members are principally singers and others are instrumentalists. Singers, male and female, young and old, do not need to be able to read music but they do need to have a love of singing the Lord's songs and a readiness to learn new material. 

Their repertoire includes many contemporary worship songs and choruses, as well as some traditional hymns and songs. These are presented in a variety of styles, sometimes quietly devotional and sometimes in a more upbeat manner. 

Rehearsals are normally held on Tuesday evenings 6.45 - 8.00pm in church and there is also a monthly Saturday afternoon rehearsal followed by a time of fellowship.

Sound Engineers 

The music in All Hallows and, indeed, the whole of our services, is supported by a team of sound engineers who set up microphones to mix and match the instrumental and vocal timbres and project the music around the church, producing a highly professional balance and blend of sound.

If you would like to assist the team of sound engineers, please contact Lew Eccleshall, using the link on the right-hand side of this page.
