We gather for worship every Sunday at 10am to respond to God’s presence in our lives and in the world.
Traditional sacred music from the past thousand years is still the starting point for our worship, along with pieces from other traditions up to the present day. Hymns may be led by our new organ, while congregational members or guests often play instrumental solos during worship. We include the hymn music in our worship video, so you can join in from home. Whatever the style, music at St. Dunstan’s always speaks to both the heart and the mind.
St. Dunstan’s Choir
The St. Dunstan’s Choir provides musical leadership and offering most weeks during the school year. Normally, the choir meets for rehearsals on Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings to learn hymns, psalms, and anthems. Rehearsals aim to strengthen both individual musicianship and the skills of the group as a whole, with the added bonus of allowing us to pray as we learn anthems rooted in the Word. Rehearsal commitments are Thursdays from 7:00-8:30 pm, and Sunday mornings from 9:00-9:45 am, before singing for the 10:00 service, with one Thursday and Sunday off each month. All are welcome to join the choir — no experience necessary, just a willingness to commit to attending rehearsals and practicing regularly at home.
We are currently in a liminal stage, with the new Delta variant uprooting our plans once again. If not meeting in person due to COVID concerns, we will meet virtually for a shortened rehearsal, and decide as a group if we’d like to work on putting together virtual anthems.

St. Dunstan’s Parish Musicians
St. Dunstan’s is blessed to have many musicians in the congregation who enhance our worship by sharing their talents. From music rooted in the Classical tradition, all the way to Dixieland Jazz, our musicians offer energy and beauty in their offerings. If you sing or play an instrument and would like to share your music during a service, please contact our music director, Susanna Valleau: email@example.com
St. Dunstan’s Handbell Choir
The St. Dunstan’s Handbell Choir meets after church on Sunday mornings to work on exercises that help improve sightreading and handbell ringing technique, and learn anthems to share during Sunday services. We use a three-octave set of handbells, as well as a three-octave set of hand chimes, both by Schulmerich Bells. Reading music (in either the treble clef, bass clef, or both) is a prerequisite for joining the Handbell Choir. If you are interested in learning more, please contact the director of the Handbell Choir, Karin Rogers: firstname.lastname@example.org
St. Dunstan’s Hand Chime Choir
Our Hand Chime Choir is made up of our Sunday School students and meets during Sunday School. The Hand Chime Choir learns anthems by ear, by reading a chart, and through storytelling. If you would like to know more about getting your child involved with the Hand Chime Choir, please contact Karin Rogers: email@example.com
