Our Director of Music is Christopher Hughes and is currently studying for a Masters in Organ Performance at the Royal College of Music. Chris joins us from Leeds Roman Catholic Cathedral where he was organ scholar and conducted LUUMS from 2020-2022. Chris has given a number of organ recitals and is also an accomplished pianist.

The Choir

We have a small but talented Choir under the direction of Christopher Hughes, our Director of Music and Organist. 

We are always looking to expand the Choir, all voices are very welcome. The Choir also draws in temporary members for our Christmas and Easter services.

The Choir sings a wide range of anthems during our 10am service and also combines with the choirs of the other churches in our team for special occasions and on visits to cathedrals.

St Mary's Chorus

The St Mary’s Chorus sings at our monthly Worship for All Service.  We welcome anyone interested in joining, children and adults alike.


The Band

St Mary’s Band is made up of adults and children. It plays hymns and more modern worship songs during our monthly Worship for All Service. Young people who have reached Grade 2 or above are very welcome to join.
