Church Choir and Music

Please note that the Choir are not currently singing due to the Covid19 restrictions

The Choir

Purley United Reformed Church Choir was formed shortly after the opening of our present Church building in 1905 and over the years sang at many choral services.  The choir was often invited to give concerts at other churches and institutions.   The choir is now small but stills leads the singing as part of the worship on Sundays and sings anthems regularly.  The choir is drawn from members of the congregation and new members are always welcomed into the choir.  The choir practises before Sunday morning services and for services such as the Christmas Candlelight Service, there are extra practices.

The Organ

The organ is a three manual Willis organ built-in 1924. There is a rolling investment programme to ensure that this historically important instrument is maintained and enjoyed by all who worship with us now and in the future.

Guest organists are welcome, by arrangement, to play the organ during Sunday morning services.  As well as accompanying the hymns and playing voluntaries, the visiting organist is be able to work with and support the choir.
