The Choir at St Luke's is led by choir leader, Sally Dow.
Their main focus is to bring beautiful music to St Luke's during the 9.30am service and to enhance the sung worship during Communion and Morning Worship. During the year the choir also lead special services, often in the evenings, which have sung worship as a focus. These can either be the occasional Taizé service, Evensong or some of the services listed below.
Most of the music the choir sings is accompanied by the organ, usually played by the church organist Keith Thompson. But frequently our music is enhanced by the flute playing of Andrew Tawn. And at least once a month there are pieces played by Sally on the keyboard, often accompanied by Ray Stevens on the guitar.
The highlight at Christmas is our service of Carols and Candles with congregational carols, pieces by the choir and a range of seasonal readings. The church is illuminated with as many candles as can be mustered which lends a beautiful atmosphere.
On Good Friday the choir leads an evening of Music and Readings. This is a time for quiet reflection and the music and song choices reflect the sombre theme.
