Greg Lewin is the new organist at St Chad’s. He took up his post on 1st October and his first service was on Sunday 7th October 2018.

After studying music at Trinity College, London and Bristol University, he taught music in a secondary school for ten years before leaving to pursue an interest in early music, making instruments and editing mediaeval and renaissance music.

An interest in computing led to a Master’s degree in information technology and a period spent developing software for music publishing.

He has been involved in church music since he was a junior choirboy and has been a church organist almost as long.

As a church musician he has always maintained a choir, for which he has composed and arranged anthems and sacred music.

He has also directed a number of larger works, ranging from Stainer’s Crucifixion to musicals ..

Greg lives in Brewood with his wife, Sue and Sirius the dog.
