Small but mighty sums up the music ministry at Christ Church. Our choirs are passionate about leading music in our worship services. With active participation, we host both an Adult and Youth choir.
The adult choir is led by four section leaders, SATB, so that no church member needs ever sing alone, unless, of course, they want to! The musicians are in tune with the flow of the service and seasons, and the music resonates with the mood in the room during worship. Even for congregation members who claim they "don't sing," the music offered in worship strikes a chord, both in congregational singing, listening, and choral/organ/instrumental offerings.
If you would like to contribute to the music offered in worship beyond singing in the pews, be in touch! We'd love to hear from you. We are small enough to be flexible and offer opportunities for participation as appropriate.
The Church Organ
"I am writing this
on the day that our new organ has arrived at Christ Church and I just might not
sleep tonight! I can report that it is a thing of great visual beauty and
outstanding quality. At that time the organ's tonal beauty will also become
apparent to us all - may it continue to enhance our worship for many
generations to come. I can say, having followed closely the design and
fabrication of this instrument over the past 12 months and having worked
closely with our talented organ builder Cornel Zimmer, that I believe
that we are now the possessors of a superior organ which combines the best of
traditional pipe organ manufacturing methods with the latest highest-quality
digital electronics technology. Let us rejoice and be glad in
