The main purpose of the  choir at St. Botolph's Church is to help lead the worship at our weekly Sung Eucharist services.

At present (May 2017), the post of organist and choirmaster is vacant.

In the past, the group has visited local cathedrals at Chichester and Portsmouth to sing evensong when the Cathedral choir is on holiday; visited local care homes to sing Christmas, Easter and Harvest music for residents who are unable to attend the church due to infirmity, and sung at least two concerts a year at St. Botolph's. At the end of August 2016, the choir paid a three-day visit to sing services at Worcester Cathedral.
 
The repertoire includes compositions from the Renaissance (16th Century) to the present day.
 
Choir practices are held each Friday starting at 7.30pm but, whilst there is no choir leader in post, finishing times may vary! At present, the group is an adult choir and new members in all voice parts are always welcome (but must have some level of sight-reading, please).
 
For further information about the choir please contact:
Martin Didymus, choir librarian, on 01903 202036 or email martin.didymus@virginmedia.com
