We offer praise to God with song

We have a rich tradition of music at Westminster Presbyterian. We highly value music and celebrate our phenomenal choir made up of all ages and diverse faiths. Music for worship and praise is an important component of our Sunday services, and as a congregation we sing hymns of praise and thanks to God. 

Chancel Choir

Our chancel choir sings during Sunday worship. Anyone who enjoys singing is invited to join the chancel choir. They rehearse on Thursday evenings.

Bell Choir

Our hand bell choir usually performs standalone pieces during select worship services, but occasionally they accompany the chancel choir or support hymn singing with the congregation. Our bell choir rehearses on Thursday evenings.

The Westminster Carillon Chimes

The bell tower at Westminster is home to the Westminster Chimes. The chimes are electronic and ring the time throughout the day.  At 6 p.m. each evening, the chimes play a short selection of music. 

Special Musical Guests

Westminster occasionally hosts musical guests for worship, as well as special events and concerts.
