The Choir


St John the Baptist Church

Kingsthorpe, Northampton

Join Us

We are always happy to welcome new members, both young people and adults.

If you are looking for a choir which performs music of high quality but is fun to belong to, this choir is for you. We ask for a regular attendance at services and practices, though the commitment is not as demanding as you might think.

From week to week, choir members are offered:

  • A high quality of music
  • Great experience in singing and general musicianship
  • Opportunities to regularly lead church worship
  • Opportunities to achieve award levels in singing up to national levels
  • An opportunity to meet new friends with similar interests.

100% attendance for the month is rewarded with a small prize for younger choristers.

Younger members need to be available Tuesdays between 4.45 and 5.45pm in term time, Fridays between 6.45 and 8.00pm and Sunday mornings. There is also a Choral Evensong on occasional Sundays from 6.00 - 7.00pm, preceded by a practice.

We have vacancies for all voice parts, particularly tenors and basses. Some of the music we sing is quite challenging, so the ability to read music is an advantage. You need to be able to sing in tune and give a minimum commitment to the choir i.e. Friday practices and Sunday service on most weeks.

If you wish to join our choir or would like further information please contact the Director of Music Andrew Moodie on 01604 780507 or via email at
