THE ARTS

THE ORGAN

A series of organ concerts takes place at Bloomsbury on the last Saturday of each month at 4pm.

 

Please see the Diary Page for details of forthcoming organ concerts.

The concerts are free, but we take a collection to help cover expenses

(£5 is the suggested donation).

 

Light finger buffet is served in the Friendship Centre after each concert.

The original organ, installed at Bloomsbury when the church first opened in 1848, was altered and improved in 1850 by the famous Henry Willis. The organ was rebuilt by Brindley & Foster in 1914.

During 2006 the church experimented with a number of ranks of pipes by the eminent Yorkshire Builder JJ Binns (1855-1928). The improvement was dramatic. If you want to know more click the link below for the full story and organ spec.

CHOIR

Bloomsbury is blessed with many singers and instrumentalists who enhance our services with their musical gifts. From week to week, the members of the choir change (according to their availablity), but under the careful direction of Philip Luke a high standard is maintained.

The singers, many of them accomplished musicians in their own right, together with enthusiastic amateurs, rise to the challenge of the four-part harmonies of both traditional choral works and modern contemporary worship songs.

 

Philip is always listening out for strong, tuneful voices in the congregation, and many people who are visiting one Sunday can find themselves at choir practice at 10am the next week, rehearsing for the morning service.

GOSPEL SUNDAY

'Gospel Sunday' is a partnership with the London International Gospel Choir. Join us at 7pm for an hour of Gospel Music with some of the best Gospel singers in London.

 

Please see the diary for forthcoming dates.

 

You are also welcome to join them for an afternoon workshop 3pm-5.30pm (cost £5), where you can learn new material and experience what it is to be trained as part of this amazing choir. The workshop is followed by dinner at 5.45pm (cost £5), and then at 7pm there is a worship service.
