Tring Church Choir
Tring Church Choir is a very active group of people who give their time to provide music and lead the singing to assist the worship in the church. The big services at Christmas and Easter are obviously well known, but the Church Choir supports all the regular services of the church week in, week out, throughout the year. The choir also sing regularly for weddings and other special occasions that arise from time to time. Choir rehearsals take place every Friday evening to rehearse for each Sunday service, and also to practice ahead for the more complicated and challenging items.
As members of an RSCM-affiliated choir there are also opportunities to take part in events and courses run by the RSCM.
We are an adult-only choir at the moment. New members are welcome, some prior choral singing experience (although not necessarily in a church choir) and the ability to read music are essential.
Tring Church Worship Group
We lead the singing on the 2nd Sunday of the month for the Worship for All Service and rehearse before the service. Singers and all kinds of instruments are welcome to join.
Piano and More
Monthly concerts in Tring Church
The Piano and More concert series was started in 2017 and takes place in the beautiful setting of Tring’s mediaeval Parish Church. The series centres around the 1906 Bechstein grand piano which the church acquired in January 2017, and has involved many local musicians - pianists, singers, instrumentalists and conductors. A regular series of hour long Sunday afternoon concerts has been established, usually on the second Sunday of each month, and additional concerts have also taken place at other times.

Puttenham Church has 3 bells which are rung for festivals and weddings by ringers from across the team.
The T-ringers are a handbell ringing group
We are a group of about 10 people and we meet to practice on Monday mornings in Tring Church to practice. We go out fairly regularly to entertain various groups as well as ringing at church events.
New members are always welcome. No prior experience necessary.
Tring Choral Society
Whilst not one of our parish groups we have close links to the choral society because their concerts are in Tring Church and they were generous supporters of our new lighting.
There are three regular concerts a year: at Christmas, Easter and one in the Summer, with some additional events for special occasions.
