November 2019:

These are the suggested hymns for the month of November, 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 for several reasons.

For the past five years the parish held a week day hymnal singing practice, initially on a Monday then switching to a Thursday, those rehearsals now cease (as of September 2019). 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'.

 

Occasionally the hymn numbers may be subject to change.  The final selected hymns are presented on the main web page Hymns.

 

The hymns below are suggestions and subject to change.
