Songs of praise

Songs of praise is for anyone who enjoys singing hymns and songs of worship as part of a full and lively church.

Along with other people in the congregation, you can choose at least one of the ten hymns or songs sung during the service.

Songs of praise is on whenever there’s a 5th Sunday in the month, which is 4 or 5 times a year.

It usually starts at 6.00pm at St Bartholomew’s, but occasionally is at other times at St Philip’s Webheath or St Mary’s Lower Bentley. Check the Calendar for more details.
