Music

We are fortunate at St Paul’s to have a skilled organist and a good number of other instrumentalists and singers who share their skills at different services and greatly enhance our worship. At St Matthew’s a team of four organists leads the hymn and psalm singing. We rely on the commitment and dedication of regular church worshippers and would be delighted to welcome others to sing or play with us. Please contact our music administrator, Ali Galvin for further information.
