CHANCEL CHOIR: We can always use new members in our choir – come to rehearsal on Thursdays at 7 pm. You need not commit to every single Sunday and Thursday rehearsal to be a member – we understand that everyone has other obligations which occasionally interfere. You need not have a great voice – just be able to carry a tune in a bucket. Thanks!
