Music at Christ Church

Christ Church has a rich tradition of excellent music, enhancing the experience of worship for all who are here. Our diverse program offers abundant opportunities to exercise their talent for those who are musically inclined. There are five choirs for singers and bell ringers as well as opportunities for instrumentalists to play during our worship services.  Monthly Evensong, Taize, or Lessons and Carols services are held at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoons, and several special music concerts are planned for 2013-14.  Our new brochure for the third season (2014-15) of Music at Christ Church Andover will be available shortly - check back by this website. For further information or to become involved in the Music Ministry at Christ Church, please contact Barbara Bruns, Minister of Music at 978-475-0529, Ext. 14.
