Fellowship through music
The Church Choir
The Choir is a lively and enthusiastic group who participate in all the 9:30 a.m. Sunday services, as well as monthly Choral Evensong Services, all the major festivals and, by arrangement, at weddings and funerals.
In the past few years we have also put on concerts, featuring such works as Vivaldi's Gloria and John Rutter's Requiem, and in August 2019 we sang services for a weekend at Christchurch Cathedral, Oxford (see banner photo top of page).
Christmas fixtures include not just our fabulous Carol Service but also pub and street carol singing.
Rehearsals are held on Thursdays in church, Juniors (aged 8 to 16) from 7:00pm until 8:15pm and adults (aged 16 to 90ish) from 7:30pm until 9:00pm. We are always happy to welcome new singers.
Please contact the Parish Office in the first instance to be put in touch with our Choir Director, Karen Phillips.

The Bell ringers are an enthusiastic band of people, of age range 12 to 70+ years, who ring on Sundays for the 9:30 a.m. and Evensong services and special occasions. They meet in the bell tower on Monday evenings at 7:30 p.m. for practice. A warm welcome is extended to anyone who would like to come and learn this ancient art.
St Michael's Belles are a team of 10 ringers who rehearse on Thursday evenings in term time at the Pastoral Centre.
We ring before the Christmas Eve Carol Service and other Church Festivals if available. We have also staged concerts jointly with the choir and Camberley Brass Band.
In additional to the main team, we are hoping to establish a younger group "Blossoming Belles" when circumstances allow.
Our normal outreach work includes ringing at local care homes, for youth groups and local organisations such as the WI and Towns Women's Guild. We also run a monthly workshop for residents at a local nursing home who suffer with dementia.
New members are welcome. The ability to read music is an advantage but not a necessity. Please contact the Parish Office, who will forward your enquiry.
