CHURCH Christ Church Bexleyheath

Christ church Bexleyheath is fortunate to have a solid choral tradition stretching back over very many decades. Blessed with a fine acoustic in the chancel, a solid Hunter organ and the enthusiasm and commitment of the choir members the church retains a healthy four-part robed choir. The musical mainstay remains centred mostly around traditional hymnody, anthems, psalms and motets; in more recent years these have been supplemented by responsorial psalms, Taize music, and plainsong to reflect the changes in worship patterns and also adopted by many other churches in the UK and abroad. A sung service setting is used for the Sung Eucharist. The church is fortunate to have a vast choir library incorporating music of most musical periods and styles. Whilst some copies are over 100 years old but there are also many much more recent things!

The choir is affiliated to the RSCM (Royal School of Church Music) which aims to promote a high standard of singing in church. The RSCM offers a “Voice for Life” scheme through which affiliated churches instruct their choristers both in musical technique, musical theory and other matters. In addition to our usual Sunday morning patterns of worship we also like to do a BCP 1662 Choral Evensong several times a year in addition to other special occasions such as the Advent Carol Service and the Christmas Carol Service. We welcome and are grateful for additional singers from other churches in the area to come and help out as and when they are able.

For further information about the choir please speak to a Choir member, Tony or Andrew.

Alternatively please email an enquiry via our contact page and we will be in contact shortly.
