Geoffrey Williams BEM [ ]

Geoffrey Williams began his association with church music in 1976 when he joined the choir of Liverpool Cathedral under the direction of Ronald Woan. He sang for the completion service of the cathedral in 1978 and sang for the visits of Princess Diana and Prince Charles and Pope John Paul II. In 1981 Ronald Woan retired and was succeeded by Ian Tracey who appointed Geoff as Head Chorister in 1982.

When Geoff left the choir in 1983 he was  appointed as Organ Scholar to Ian Tracey for two years. He moved to All Hallows, Allerton as Assistant Organist before becoming Assistant Organist at St Anne's, Stanley in 1985. He was appointed Organist and Choirmaster in 1987 and has continued to enhance the worship at St. Anne's, which has a strong reputation as a centre for traditional church music.

Geoff was awarded the British Empire Medal in the 2017/2018 New year's honours list for services to the community through his work at St. Anne's.
