During pre-COVID times, we gathered for worship every Sunday at 8am and 10am to respond to God’s presence in our lives and in the world.
Now, as we worship online, 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 owns a 3-octave set of Schulmerich Handbells, and a 3-octave set of Schulmerich hand chimes. Handbell choir members play regularly during worship services.
When our Sunday school meets once more, we will continue to include hand chime instruction to our youth (no musical experience necessary). In the past, our Sunday school participants provided occasional music for worship services, and played for the Bishop of Olympia during his 2019 visit.
