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.
We welcome and encourage the congregation and individual and small group soloists to share their musical talents . We occasionally combine choirs with Covenant Presbyterian Church.
