The music at HPC is varied, including both modern and traditional songs and hymns. The music team includes people of different ages with a range of musical gifts and backgrounds.
Our choir sings for most 10.30am Sunday services, rehearsing (with our instumentalists) on most Friday evenings (7.30-9pm). The choir also sings for occasional special 6.30pm Sunday services, usually with three Friday evening rehearsals in advance (7.30-9.30pm).
Several instrumentalists (serving on a rota) play for 10.30 am Sunday services. In addition, one or two amplified singers help to lead the songs in some of these services, including our all-age services. Rehearsals normally take place on Friday evenings (normally 7.30-9.00 pm). Congregational singing at 6.30 pm Sunday services is usually led by the organ or piano. Around once a month, two or three other instrumentalists join in to create a small band.
Youth Band is for young people in Years 7-13 (aged 11 and upwards). It meets on Tuesday evenings during term-time, usually fortnightly, from 7.30 until 9.00 pm.
Junior Band is for children in Years 3-6 (aged 7-11). It meets on occasional Saturdays from 4.15 until 5.15pm.
