May 2020:

 These are the suggested hymns for the month of May  selected from the Southwark Diocese Music Planner. Rehearsals are held in the church on Sunday at 9.30 a.m. before the 10.30 a.m. Mass, we now move to a ‘choir lite’ stage.

The weekday singing rehearsal have ceased, we sing and rehearse on Sunday before mass. Additional rehearsals will be organised on an ad hoc basis as and when required, for example, to learn new hymns or material or when preparing for special occasions. Please click here to view Choir 'lite'.


The selected hymns will appear on the main web page Hymns. Updates of the final version will be posted 24 hours after the Monday rehearsal.
