We are an association for all those who love to hear and play the organ, and enjoy choral music.  

We hold a variety of events including talks, recitals and often there is an opportunity for those attending to play the organs we visit.  We arrange visits to churches, chapels and other locations in the West Cheshire, Wirral and North-East Wales to see and hear interesting instruments.  We produce a newsletter  with items of interest to our members and details of our events.   Printed copies of the newsletter are mailed to our members and made available online.  

The November  2021 edition of our newsletter has been published.

Programme for autumn 2021  - Our final event for 2021!

Saturday 20th November 2:00pm to 4:00pm Workshop: Singing the Psalms in Worship, Our Lady of the Rosary, Buckley. [CH7 2AF].

The workshop will explore many different ways that Psalms may be sung as a part of our worship.  It will briefly look how Psalms have been used in worship since the time of Christ and how they are used across different denominations and traditions today.  We shall listen to some recordings of psalm singing and attendees will have the opportunity to try singing some Psalms themselves.  It is hoped that those who participate in the workshop will be able to take away some ideas about using the Psalms which they could try out at their own churches. 

Please invite any singers who may be interested to come along and join us for this “interactive” workshop.  All the music needed for the workshop will be provided.  There will lots of opportunity to sing!
