Music is very important to our worship. We have a Sung Mass each Sunday at 10:30 am led by the choir of St Saviour's. The choir rehearses on Thursday evenings at 6:00 pm and Sunday mornings at 9:30 am prior to the main Sunday service. Everyone is welcome to join the choir, following a brief (and friendly) audition with the Director of Music. If you would like to join the choir, please email our Director of Music on to arrange an audition.
St Saviour’s is delighted to be able to offer four choral scholarships (SATB) worth £3300 p/a. The choral scholars are a key part of the musical life of the church in offering mentorship to our volunteers and Children’s choir.

Our choristers meet at 5:30 pm on Thursday evenings. The choristers sing for all our Sunday morning services and we are hoping that they will begin to join us for evensongs before too long. The choristers earn some pocket money for attending rehearsals and services and can work towards obtaining medals through the RSCM ‘Voice for Life’ scheme. If you would like to find out more then come and join us on a Thursday at 5:30 pm.
Concerts and Recitals
In addition to the liturgical music making at St Saviour’s we run a concert series. The Friday lunchtime concerts run between 1:15 pm and 2:00 pm and showcase a wide range of musicians and musical styles.
At St Saviour's we also have amateur and professional musicians use the church for rehearsal space. If you are looking for musical rehearsal space, please contact our Parish Office for availability and resources available.
