Background Select :

St Mary's Church Choir

We are very keen to learn new songs, anthems and styles of music. We are a robed choir of gentlemen,

ladies and children and our choir is one of 67 choirs affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music in Norfolk.

The children are currently undertaking the RSCM “Voice for Life” programme.


We sing at the service of Holy Communion on the first and third Sundays of each

month at 10 o’clock, Choral Evensong every other month and if invited at Weddings

and Funerals. We also take part in the Group Ministry services as well as some of

the “Watton Churches Together” events.”


We practise on 1st and 3rd Wednesday evening at 7.30pm in the church. On 4th Wednesday of each month we have a “Group” choir practice also at 7.30pm.


We always welcome new members. Do come along and give us a try!


Our Organist and Choir Mistress is Lorraine Eldridge



The Highlights of Our Year

Each service we sing for, is wonderful and uplifting. It is humbling to know that we are helping others to worship God leading the singing. Past events have included:

Scratch choir with the Methodists and Shine at the Pentecost Service, Easter Services, Celebration Evensong with tea and cakes afterwards, “Love’s old sweet songs” a sing-a-long for Harvest with afternoon tea, Carol service and Midnight mass, Compline service with plainchant workshop and light supper
