The Wheathill Benefice Choir draws its members from the villages of Keinton Mandeville, West Lydford, Barton St David, Butleigh & the surrounding area. We began as a choir formed, for 6 weeks, to sing for the Christmas services in 2015 but have been singing ever since. We now meet regularly throughout the year for Church Festivals, monthly Benefice services and other occasions.

The picture above was taken when we had an amazing picnic in glorious sunshine, then sang to entertain those visiting the Chapel of the Bishop’s Palace, Wells.

Over the summer we meet in a more relaxed style with time for morning coffee and a chat whilst also learning a wider variety of music including jazzy pieces, Disney songs & folksong material. We come from all walks of life, all are welcome to join and to come and praise God with our love of singing.

During the current emergency situation all choir commitments have been cancelled. However, when it becomes possible to return to worship in our churches, any new members will be very welcome. Do email Lynne Kirkman:  to register your interest and so that she can let you know when practices begin again.
