Job Description

Music development
We are currently working to develop the music offered at Thornhill Parish Church. This includes developing the exisiting choirs in the Benefice churches,  setting up a community choir, and building on our musical links with local schools. If you have any ideas for activities that you think we should be offering, please do get in touch. 

Children regularly come into the church. Here are two photos from May 2016 when two local schools came to hear the restored organ demonstrated.

The choir in the Benefice is a friendly group of singers who meet for the love of singing, anyone can sing with the group, and it does not matter how much experience you have. There is no need to audition. 

The choir rehearses at the church on Wednesday evenings, 6.30-7.15 pm. Everyone is welcome to join - just come along and give it a try! 

Worship Group

There is a small music group of 5 people who wish to develop their skills and contribute to our worship.
