All Saints Singers and Musicians

 
 

Since group singing again became possible, All Saints has been developing a voluntary choir to lead congregational singing and offer music as part of our worship. This has been greatly valued by all concerned. Already our repertoire has been wide, including hymns and anthems both traditional and modern, and also short chants. We are fortunate to have both an excellent pipe organ and a grand piano; occasionally we have been joined by instrumentalists.

So far, we have sung at the main weekly service on Sundays at 10.00am, gathering beforehand at 9.30am to practise. We have just launched a new venture, offering a monthly choral evensong at St Luke’s Nursing Home, which is in our parish. On those occasions, our numbers are likely to be augmented by singers drawn from outside the core morning choir.

With the arrival of our new interim organist, we have begun Friday evening choir practices. Currently, these take place weekly at 8.00pm, lasting an hour and a quarter. None of our members is a professional singer. Rather, we aim to make our contribution to church life and worship, to improve our skills and to enjoy music together. You are very welcome to join us. It helps if you have some experience of learning and holding a part, but we regard a commitment to practising together and at home as even more important.

If you would like to learn more about the choir, or about playing an instrument in our services, then please contact our organist, Stuart Donaldson, via organist@allsaintsheadington.org.uk , or our music organiser, Vivienne Larminie, via music-organiser@allsaintsheadington.org.uk.

We look forward to hearing from/meeting you!

Planning your Visit

A Warm Welcome

We welcome everyone to our Sunday services - whether you are sure you believe, sure you don't believe or not sure either way!

Where and When

We meet at the Church Building (details here) for our Sunday Service starting at 10am. For your first visit, it helps to arrive early to get a parking spot and a seat in time for the service to start. When you arrive, you will be greeted by one of our sidespersons who will give you a service booklet and a hymn book.

You are welcome to join in as much as you like - or just to listen quietly if you prefer.

There is no need to book.

You are equally welcome to wear a mask or not.

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access (via the south door), and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There is an accessible toilet at the west end of the church.


After the service

We serve tea, coffee and biscuits. It is a great way to meet people, or simply take time to find your bearings.


What about my kids?

We believe that children are an important part of the church. God’s gracious covenant promises extend not just to us, but also to our children. We want to follow the example of Jesus, who said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them” (Matthew 19:14).

We therefore welcome children at all our services and we encourage them to participate in our worship. Of course, we understand that babies and young children sometimes need a break - so we have a children's corner at the back where parents can take children when necessary. There are also often activities put on for children during the sermon. But please don’t worry if your little one makes a bit of noise. No-one in the congregation will mind. Quite the opposite!
