Singing together is a great way to build more confidence as a group. It also means that you can be part of something bigger, sharing the joy of music with other people, and forming life-long friendships. It’s also a great way to get to know the tunes for those hymns that we sing at Sunday Services!

Music plays a central role in our worshipping life, and it’s a gateway to making new friends. Fellowship is an important part of who we are as a Church family. There’s also a good standard of choral singing, as well as an instrumental group for the All-age Services at St. Mary’s and All Saints Church, in Conwy.
