St Andrew with St Alban Ecumenical choir in the Parish of Mottingham

Every year former St Andrew's choir leader, Beverley Howard, organises, arranges and conducts an Ecumenical Christmas Carol Service. This involves the church choir, members of the congregations of St Andrew's, St Alban's and other churches in Mottingham and Eltham. Members of Eltham Choral Society and Intimate Opera also participate in the the 40 strong choir. As well as traditional seasonal music, the choir also sings lesser known and challenging pieces that Beverley has selected from other countries.

Several weeks of rehearsal ensure the choir is well prepared to perform well and with confidence.

If you enjoy choral singing and would like to participate in the 2018 Ecumenical Christmas Carol Service please contact Beverley Howard at
