Musical Director: RICHARD THOMAS

St Matthew’s has a strong choral tradition. The church choir is made up of around 15-20 non-auditioned volunteer members who sing for the love of the music and the spirit of companionship fostered by this wonderful group.

The choir is led by our organist and choir master Richard Thomas. Our repertoire spans five centuries and includes anthems and motets by such great composers as Palestrina, Monteverdi, Victoria, Purcell, Mozart, Wesley, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Mawby and MacMillan.

We rehearse every Sunday on either side of the morning service:
Rehearsal 1 - 9.45am - 10.30am
Rehearsal 2 - 11.30am - 12.00pm

We are recruiting new members NOW so if you are interested please contact Richard Thomas on or simply introduce yourself after the morning service one Sunday.

Richard Thomas is also Musical Director of Tredici chamber choir:
