Our exceptional accompanist, Alice Chenyang Xu, accompanies our in-person and Zoom services with live piano music.
Alice brings a wonderful musical sensitivity to worship, enhancing our hymn singing and providing solo pieces for prayer and reflection.
Music is a key aspect of our worship services. We generally sing traditional protestant hymns, as well as a selection of African American spirituals, gospel music, chants and songs of various cultures. Musical reflections and responses are integrated into the service, to give the congregation the time and space they need for meditation. As with all aspects of our worship, the music is not a performance for entertainment, but inspiration for our spiritual experience.
