Family Communion Music Group

The St Peter's Music Group - pic 130The Family Communion Music Group leads the music at the 9.30am Family Service on a Sunday morning, and occasionally at other times. We are a group of about 25 people who love singing or playing. We have a regular pianist, a cellist, a mandolin player, various flautists, a clarinettist (who learned to play the clarinet so that he could join the Music Group, and who is now often our soloist for Communion), an occasional drummer and some excellent percussionists. We meet once a month in the Music Room at St Peter’s for practice on a Sunday afternoon, beginning with cake at 4.30pm and starting to sing and play at 4.45pm. The session lasts for about an hour. We choose hymns and songs which we would like to play for the next few weeks and our music repertoire is usually drawn from the 1,690 hymns in Songs of Fellowship, so we have plenty to choose from. We always welcome new members either as singers or instrumentalists.

Please contact Judy Williamson via the Parish Office if you are interested in joining the Music Group.
