St. Mary’s Charlton Kings has a flourishing choir with an emphasis on performance and enjoyment. Belonging to the choir is a fantastic opportunity to receive excellent music tuition. It is an all-age choir, accepting choristers from age 8yrs upwards. We believe that we are the only choir in Cheltenham that offers a rich mixture of musical and social activity and that puts young people at the heart of all that we do.
Practice is on Tuesdays at 7.30pm in the Bell Tower and then the bells are rung on Sundays at 9.15am and 5.45pm.
St Mary’s has had a ring of 8 bells since 1893 and for as long as local records have been kept, the church has had an active band of ringers. You do not need to be strong or athletic to become a ringer – having a good sense of rhythm, good hand-eye co-ordination and the ability to listen critically are more important. People of all ages are welcome.

The flower arrangers are responsible for weekly church flowers but they often arrange wedding flowers and decorate the church for other special occasions. Tuition is given.

If you like drama or love to tell Bible stories, then why not join one of the Open the Book teams? Every week (in term time) teams of volunteers from all of the Charlton Kings churches visit local schools. They bring the stories of the bible to life through drama, music and story telling in interesting and imaginative ways.
Memebrs of St. Mary’s currently visit Charlton Kings Infants, Charlton Kings Juniors and Glenfall Primary.
