Music plays an important role in our ministry at Plymouth Church, both in worship and outreach.
We have a committed chancel choir which rehearses Thursday evenings at 7:30 PM and Sunday mornings at 9:45 AM before the service from September through May. Click here to listen to one of their anthems. The all volunteer chancel choir includes both amateur vocalists as well as those with formal training. The choir is well versed in a wide range of musical genres from sacred choral music from the 16th Century to spirituals to the most recent choral works and traditional hymn settings available.
We also have many talented musicians in our congregation, and encourage them to offer their musical gifts in worship, individually or as an ensemble. Sometimes we get together the Plymouth Congregational Orchestra - click here to hear them play Corelli's Christmas Concerto
The sanctuary has a fine 2-manual, 18-stop Wissinger Opus 7 tracker pipe organ built in 1987. This opus #7 organ was Darron Wissinger's first 2-manual organ (specs available here) and was completed at his Portsmouth, New Hampshire shop. In addition to the pipe organ, we have a Yamaha grand piano in the sanctuary and both are used in services as well as concerts and recitals. If you are interested in using our sanctuary space, contact our church office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In our pews you will find our primary hymnal, Hymns of Truth and Light as well as Pilgrim Hymnal. We supplement these with a wide variety of online and print sources including New Century Hymnal for worship.
