As all our services are suspended at present, none of the groups below are currently meeting in person. However we are committed to providing a variety of music for our online services.
Our robed choir currently comprises 4 men and 4 women who lead the singing at the Parish Eucharist, our main Sunday morning service. The choir rehearses on Sundays from 9.25 to 9.45 before the service. The robed choir is directed by our Director of Music, Alan Winstanley.
Our worship group is made up of around 15 singers and instrumentalists. They mainly contribute (though not exclusively) to the All Together Eucharist on the 2nd Sunday of the month and together with occasional evening services. The group meets to rehearse and spend time together on Monday evenings. Justin Stretch is the co-ordinator for the Worship Group.

And here is the song Calvary.
The children’s choir rehearse after the 10.00 Eucharist during term time. They sing at the All Together Eucharist and occasionally at the Parish Eucharist. The Children’s Choir is not currently operating as we review our pattern of ‘after church’ commitments, but please watch this space!
Under Alan’s direction, and sometimes accompanied by our Organ Scholar, Elizabeth Bowman, the Laurence Singers are a group of singers who like to assist with the music at Laurence’s on an occasional basis. They rehearsal for specific services (often special occasions, Christmas, Easter etc). They sit in the congregation normally and come out to sing at a specific point in the service. Occasionally they lead the whole service and recent services include Pentecost Evensong and the Eucharist on the Feast of Our Lady.
