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.  Click here to view the brochure for the second season (2013-14) of Music at Christ Church Andover.
