Music at St Mark's Church

St Mark’s Church has a strong local reputation for music through its inclusion of music in services and its support of local music groups. 

We have an organist and a choir of around 8 adults who contribute to our 10am Sunday Eucharist Services.  We sing a mixture of modern and traditional hymns during this service.

On the second Sunday of the month, at 6pm, we have a Taizé Prayer service which uses simple songs or chants, usually lines from Psalms or other pieces of scripture, repeated and sometimes sung in canon.  It is a very simple and calm service.  Some people sing and others sit and listen. Everyone is welcome.

Every third Sunday, instead of the choir and organ, our family service is supported by a children’s choir and a musical group, made up of children and adults on various instruments.  If you’d like to come along and join in, please contact us.

During term time, the Geoffrey Searle Choir sings at our 6pm Choral Evensong most fourth Sundays. Dates vary according to school holidays so please check our calendar.

On Remembrance Sunday, at our memorial service around the war memorial outside our church, we traditionally have a trumpeter or bugler to sound the Last Post and Reveille.

Our organ was built in 1899 by the then foremost organ builder of the day, Henry Willis.  During February 1969 it suffered water damage during a severe storm and was subsequently rebuilt.  It is much loved by our congregation and available for use by outside music groups.  Buckland and Betchworth Choir, Dunottar School Choir, Reigate Grammar School Community Choir and Cantamus all use the church on a regular basis for concerts and choral works.   Please see our calendar for forthcoming concerts.
