Armed man High sheriff.jpg

The High Sheriff of Essex, Nick Alston, speaking after the choir's well received performance of Karl Jenkins' The Armed Man in January 2023.


In 1972, a choir was formed to bring local church choirs together - it was called Epping Church Choirs Association (ECCA for short). It quickly gained a strong reputation and sings a wide variety of music both sacred and secular (click here to see a list of our ‘Past Performances’ ).  The choir gives its main concert in January but also performs on Good Friday, in the summer and at Christmas.

In order to broaden the appeal of the choir it was decided to change the name to Epping Chorus; it remains an ecumenical choir, open to all, and we are hoping the new name will be more appealing both to potential new singers as well as to those who enjoy attending concerts.  

If you’re interested in joining the choir, please email for more information or go to our Contacts page.  


The choir is non-auditioned but the Director of Music, Simon Winters, may wish to carry out a brief voice test.  The choir currently has around 35 members and rehearses on Friday evenings in the Catholic Church Hall in Epping.
