Exmoor Benefice Choir
Choirmaster – Brenda Staples, Moonraker’s Cottage, Winsford. 01643 851396.
Practice night – Thursday, 7.30pm – usually in Winsford Church.
The present choir started in the year 2000, made up of singers from various churches in the Exmoor Benefice. We are a small friendly group and sing at United Benefice Services and other special occasions. We have also been ‘on tour’ to Brendon Hill and Minehead! During December, the choir sing Christmas carols at two residential homes in Minehead. We hold an annual concert which includes young musicians and guests and a programme of mixed choral, secular and light-hearted items.
Our schedule for 2015 will include Holy Week services, a Rogation Service at Cutcombe Market with The Right Reverend Peter Hancock, Bishop of Bath and Wells and a Sea Sunday Service held on Winsford village green, followed by tea in the village hall.
We are always pleased to welcome new members – the ability to read music is not essential and there are no auditions – just a love of singing together.
For information on joining the choir or just coming along to a rehearsal to see what we get up to – please phone Brenda on the above number.
