St Martin's Church is a stunning Victorian Grade 2 listed building which has a fascinating history. For more than a thousand years Christians have worshipped on this site in the centre of our busy market town. The buildings which have been here have evolved to meet the changing needs of the community and continue to do so.

Music plays a central part in our worship at St Martin’s. We have a long tradition of high quality church music, supported by a Director of Music and a well-established choir. The choir leads choral evensong the first Sunday each month and leads our worship at a number of other occasions during the year.
We also have a monthly recital every first Saturday of the month called "Music at Midday" to which all are welcome. A vital part of the musical life at St Martin's is provided by the William Cole Church Music Trust, which supports organ and choral scholar awards.
