Music Ministry

Embracing musical traditions
At St. Mary’s, we are committed to embracing a wide variety of musical traditions, from traditional to contemporary. We have a wide variety of services and each one has their own musical integrity. Here are some examples of how you can get involved in music ministry at St. Mary’s.

The choir leads the singing at the Sunday 10.00 am worship service on 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays.

If you are interested in joining the choir please contact David Parry-Smith  at

A music group lead worship at the 10.00am service on 2nd Sundays. We have keyboards, bass, guitars, percussion, vocalists and wind instruments. New people are most welcome to join.

4th Sunday worship at 10.00 am is led by an organ, without choir.

Bellringing is an important part of our musical tradition at St. Mary’s. The Linton Guild of Ringers welcomes both experienced ringers and beginners. Bells are rung before the main Sunday service, for various occasions and at a number of weddings throughout the year. Practices take place each Wednesday evening at 7.30 pm.

Getting involved…
We are fortunate in being able to call on the musical talent of 5 organists who play at different services. On the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays, the organist leads choir practice before the 10.00 am service.

Our bellringing is led by Tower Captain Jackie Latham, who can be contacted on

Please note that singers and instrumentalists of any age and ability are welcome to be involved in our music ministry. All worship is pleasing to God!
