WRAP Community Choir

WRAP Choir Discontinuing

It is with great sadness and after careful consideration that the PCC has reluctantly decided not to continue with the WRAP community choir at St George’s. As many of you will be aware, the choir was set up in 2012 as part of St George’s outreach work, welcoming anyone and everyone to come along and sing. In addition to a mutual love of singing and a willingness to try new things, a great sense of fellowship formed around the choir. The choir performed two concerts each year
and donated all the proceeds to local charities.

Unfortunately, however, membership of the choir and income were both significantly impacted by the Covid pandemic and it is no longer sustainable. The hope is that a future opportunity to form a new community-focused choir will arise, perhaps linked to our church choir. At this point, however, Fr Angus and the PCC, on behalf of everyone at St George’s, would like to extend their gratitude to Jason Howard, Geraldine Burrows and Nikki Edge for founding and co-ordinating the WRAP Choir as well as thanking all those who have contributed to the life of the choir and the wider community over the years.
