At St Peter’s Berkhamsted we have a thriving church choir of children and adults to support our worship. We welcome new singers – and there are fantastic opportunities for children to develop musical skills. Please get in touch to find out more.
St Peter’s Choir participates fully in the life of the church, and supports services throughout the year:
- We sing every Sunday morning at the 9:30 Eucharist
- Once a month (second Sunday of the month) we usually sing Choral Evensong
- We also sing services at special times of the year such as Christmas and Easter
