Music

Music is a mainstay of our worship at St Peter’s – worship that refreshes and prepares us for our work as individuals and as a church community.

Director of Music

Trained and conducted by our Director of Music, St Peter’s Choir sings each Sunday at the 10:00am service and for Festivals and other special occasions. Our repertoire covers a wide range of anthems, psalms and settings for the Eucharist, to enrich our worship.

For special services such as the Christmas Carol Service, we include a larger number of singers. We may occasionally by accompanied by other instruments.

The choir practises from 6:30-7:30pm on Fridays and from 9:00-10:00am on Sundays. New recruits are always welcome. No audition is required. Singers may commit to singing on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis to suit other commitments.
