The Choir

Choral music is a vital and valued part of the life of Bromley Parish Church.  Our services involve singing at the Sung Eucharist on the 1st, 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month, and for a service of choral evensong on the 2nd Sunday of the month.  Occasionally we sing for weekday services (such as Ash Wednesday and Ascension Day) and also for carol services at Advent and Christmas.

The choir is a friendly, dedicated and talented group of voluntary singers together with four choral scholars. Singers come from a range of backgrounds and are drawn together by a love of singing sacred music in its liturgical context.

The main rehearsal is on a Thursday evening (7.30 – 9.00) and there is a short rehearsal 30 minutes before the Sunday services. 

We would like to recruit more singers in all parts to create a larger choir.

If you are interested in joining the choir and would like further information please contact the Director of Music (Frank Roddy) on 01689 877025 or through the Parish Office 020 8464 5244
