The Great Choir
The Congregation is the Great Choir of the church. We sing together the great hymns of the church, including music from a variety of styles and genres. We sing in praise, confession, meditation, prayer, and proclamation of our faith.

Our Music Ministry
Music is a vital part of our worship here at United Reformed Church. We lift our voices in praise, prayer and thanksgiving through hymns, responses, solos and anthems each Sunday. Our singing and handbell choirs enrich worship on Sunday mornings and at special services. Soloists and instrumentalists touch our hearts as they lift up their music to God. We invite YOU to come and get involved and use the special gifts with which you have been blessed! Enjoy the fellowship of rehearsals and social events growing out of working together in the service of the Church. Whether a singer, a bell ringer or an instrumentalist, there is a place for you in our music making!

Section Leaders
Our Chancel Choir has four paid section leaders, one for each part. Often these positions are filled by students from Westminster Choir College, however, due to their course requirements, they frequently have to miss rehearsals or Sundays. Therefore, adults with professional vocal training and more stable schedules are encouraged to apply for these positions. Please contact Paul Dickey for further information.

Instrumentalists
There are often opportunities for solo or group instrumentalists to play for a prelude, offering or postlude. In addition, choral and handbell pieces frequently have parts for instruments to join the accompaniment. Please let Paul Dickey know of your talent!
