Biggar Parish Church

There are seventeen dedicated singers in Biggar 
Kirk Choir, and we would all be delighted if others in the congregation would consider coming and joining us. Many churches no longer have a choir, but it is our hope that here in Biggar our numbers will be maintained to support the musical life of the church.

The Choir plays an important part in leading the worship in church, Sunday by Sunday. All this requires considerable commitment from the choir which meets for practice on Thursday evenings, except during the summer months.

Anthems and songs are chosen to be relevant to the church year, or to a particular service. We look for music which we hope will have a broad appeal, and also for words which will contribute to the worship of today. We have learned some new and challenging anthems as well as returning to the old favourites, and it is very rewarding for the choir to hear the occasional appreciative comment from the people in the pews!

On the Sunday before Christmas this year, the Morning Worship will be a Service of Lessons and Carols with readings to illuminate the whole Christmas story, carols sung by the congregation, and special Christmas anthems and carols with the choir. Practice for this service will begin shortly - perhaps it might be a good time to ‘give it a try’ - and we would be especially delighted to welcome more men. Please do consider whether you might be able to help in the choir - we do enjoy our time together, we practise hard but there is also a considerable amount of laughter, and there’s a special seat in the chancel waiting for you. Who knows - you might even enjoy it?
