Music and Arts

Welcome from Grant Wareham, Derry Church’s Director of Music and Organist

I’m delighted to be here and to lead the church’s music and arts program. I do wish that there was more to share about our music program as it currently stands, but the pandemic doesn’t allow us to operate anywhere near what we normally do, including multiple adult and childrens’ choirs, handbell and chime choirs, and a myriad other instruments and players.

Rest assured, we will return as soon as it is safe to do so, as per the recommendations of the COVID-19 taskforce and session. This situation is obviously dynamic, and none of us really know exactly how or when the return will take place.

We are, however, starting to bring in small groups to record parts of services, either on Tuesdays or Thursdays. If you’re interested in being a part of an upcoming service in some capacity, please don’t hesitate to email me at grant@derrypres.org.
