Friends of St Peter and All Hallows West Huntspill

The Friends is a secular group of people who care about the future of the Church of St Peter and All Hallows in the Somerset village of West Huntspill. We are not part of the Church but value it as a historic building and community resource.

Our purpose is to involve the wider community in supporting the PCC in conserving the fabric of the Church building by raising funds through membership and by holding a variety of fund raising events.

Do you enjoy singing with a group, new songs, old songs, neglected songs?

Mark choir are a friendly group, rehearsing and singing a wide variety of music from show songs, popular ballads to church music. The choir have sung at a number of weddings, church carol services and other events. They are looking to expand our group and would warmly welcome new members to come along. Some of the members form a church choir to sing on the first Sunday in the month in church and at other Festival services during the year.

Group singing is good for relaxation, health and general well- being, so why not come along and give it a try.  The ability to read music is not essential, but if you can you would be most welcome.  What is more important is to enjoy the company of others, be a team player and enjoy singing.

When possible, they meet in the warm comfort of Mark church hall and practice church music and popular anthems for church use, and in the last hour rehearse songs from the shows and other songs, which they shall be taking into the community.

Come along and give it try, at the moment it is Free and all music is provided. For more info, contact Derek on 01278 788221 [email protected]  or Heather on 01278 641 225
