christ church contemporary BAND

Rehearsals: Wednesdays, 7:00 - 9:00 PM, Band Room
Worship: Sundays, 8:45 AM Contemporary Eucharist in All Saints' Hall

The Christ Church Contemporary Band is comprised of a diverse group of musicians, led by Dr. Brian Sullivan. Singers and instrumentalists of all ability levels are invited and encouraged to take part, even if unable to read music. The primary instrumentation includes voice, guitars, bass, drums, and keyboards, though we are happy to make room for any and every instrument and vocal type. From banjo, mandolin, or accordion to trumpet, clarinet, and hurdy-gurdy—there's a place for you to contribute to our corporate worship no matter how you make music! Repertoire is drawn from a broad array of traditions and is meant to reframe and reinforce the deep and fundamental elements of the Christian faith, while celebrating the divinity of creation and creativity, and providing a space for joyful community participation.

Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings, 7-9pm and Sunday mornings at 7:30am.
