Other activities


St. Sampson’s has an active choir which practises at the church on Friday evenings from 7-8.30pm. We sing at services on 3 Sundays of the month and there is a Choral Evensong at St. Sampson's once a year. We take part in other singing events such as the Swindon Music Festival. We also join with other choirs for special services eg. Choral Evensong at Tewkesbury Abbey and Bristol Cathedral. We welcome new singers - no previous experience of singing in a church choir required, just the ability to hold a tune! Anyone interested in trying out with us should contact the Parish Office - admin@upperthames.org.uk and we will get back to you.
