We strive to follow Jesus Christ by being… Attentive to the Word
The music ministry of Westminster Presbyterian Church serves to support and enrich the congregation’s worship of God. Through the glorious gift of music, we proclaim God’s word, sing God’s praise, and offer our prayers. Although opportunities for fellowship and nurture are also present in our music ministry, an opportunity to contribute to Christ-centered corporate worship is the main focus of the music program.
We are a singing congregation! Our congregational song is supported through leadership from our Chancel Choir, pipe organ, and piano. We embrace a blended style of worship that integrates a variety of types and styles of music chosen to amplify the proclamation of God’s word.

The Chancel Choir
is the principal ensemble in the music program. From September to June, its members provide leadership in worship on Sunday mornings. The choir's sacred musical repertoire spans a wide range of styles, including both classical works and spirituals. The choir has also shared larger choral works in worship, including Vivaldi's Gloria and requiem settings by Mozart, Faure, and Rutter. Each year, the choir leads the congregation in the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, based on the annual service held at Cambridge since 1918…read more here.
Christ, Covenant and Westminster Choirs Welcome
Our Refugee and Immigrant Neighbors
On occasion we join with other Presbyterian Church Choirs for special concerts. The combined choirs of Christ, Covenant and Westminster assembled for Singing A Welcome to our refugee and immigrant neighbors and to support the Community Immigration Law Clinic. A reception and information fair followed, with other organizations that serve these populations participating.
We welcome and encourage individual and small group soloists, and our bell choir, to share their musical talents, sometimes joining the Chancel Choir. On occasion, a Festival of Hymn Singing, led by the Chancel Choir, replaces the traditional worship service, or a small group may gather to lead the congregation in a Summer Sing.
