Christ Church Southgate is home to north London’s finest voluntary liturgical choir. With over 40 singers, both young and old, the choir can be heard singing at least twice a week on Sundays at both the Sung Eucharist and Choral Evensong, as well as on major feast days. Our choir are passionate about music, proudly keeping alive the tradition of singing a full Choral Evensong on a weekly basis.
The mixed gender Adult Choir performs a wide range of sacred music written over the last 500 years including renaissance polyphony by Byrd, Palestrina, and Tallis, through to twentieth century and contemporary works by Duruflé, Howells, Rutter, and Vaughan Williams.

The Christ Church Organ was built by J W Walker and Sons in 1870. It was subsequently enlarged to a three manual instrument in 1947, and was restored with new keyboards and pedal board in 2016. The Organ can be heard at both Parish Eucharist and Choral Evensong, and organists are available to book for weddings and funerals. The Organ’s specifications can be found here.
