The Music Program at Christ and Grace Episcopal Church in Petersburg is a dynamic and important multigenerational component of the life of our parish. The volunteer adult choir, and the handbell choir provide music at services and special events throughout the year. Grounded in the unique Anglican heritage of the Episcopal Church, the central mission of our music at Christ and Grace is to support the liturgy and enhance meaningful worship through traditional hymns, canticles, psalms, and renewal hymns.
The music at Christ and Grace reflects the variety and scope of our liturgies and parishioners while maintaining a close connection to our spiritual history and growth. From our regular Sunday morning liturgy to the quiet monthly Celtic Evensong, it is our hope that the music will find special meaning to all who worship with us.
Membership in the adult choir is open to all interested singers high school age and older. The choir sings for Sunday morning liturgies from September through May and rehearses on Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m. in the church. Members are expected to regularly attend rehearsals and Sunday services. The ability to read music, although desirable, is not required. Interested singers should contact the church office for more information.
The Canterbury Bell Choir is a multigenerational group open to youth and adults. The group meets on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. and rings three or four times per year (September-May) in Sunday worship services. Tim Richardson directs the Bell Choir.
