Location, time, cost etc.
Messengers UK meets at Shoreham Baptist Church, Western Road, in Shoreham-by-Sea. This is a two-minute walk from Shoreham train station.
When: Tuesday evenings, from March to June and from September to December.
Autumn/Winter 2018 rehearsals will start on Tuesday 11th September
Rehearsal dates for 2018:-
September - 11th, 18th, 25th
October - 2nd, 9th, 16th, (not 23rd - half term), 30th
November - 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th
December - 4th
NB - We may need extra rehearsals nearer the big events, but we will let you know.
If you are in primary school then we start at 6pm and practice for an hour.
The youth choir is open to young people of high school age and we rehearse from 6.45-8pm.
The adult choir is open for anyone over 16 (although teenagers may prefer the youth choir) and we will practice 8 – 9.30pm.
If you would like to join the choir, then come along to our workshops which will run until our concerts in early July - details on the events page. EVERYONE is welcome to come and sing in Messengers UK!
No, as we mentioned above - the choir meets for a string of workshops and concerts twice a year (but not during school holidays):
1) From March until our gigs during the Adur Festival at the beginning of June
2) From early September running until early December for a second stint of workshops and concerts, and so-on
The choir is led by Hannah Whitchurch, Fiona Eyre and Julia Daintree. All are experienced choir directors who have a huge passion for gospel music. They are just a part of a team of helpers and musicians who will look after you when you come to the church. All have been CRB checked.
The small hall is open to parents / taxi-services to chill out, read the paper and drink lots of tea, to save their sanity at risk from too many car journeys.
The weekly fee is £2.00 (adult choir), £1.00 (youth choir) and £1.00 (kids' choir) to cover costs - we are a non-profit making community choir run by volunteers.
Don't let the fee put you off, if you are strapped for cash. We want everybody to be able to join, so if you come from a low income family, then just speak to one of the team.
