Our Music Ministry

Music has always been an important part of worship of Almighty God. From earliest times humankind has expressed its deepest emotions, including its yearning for closeness to God with song and musical instruments. At Christ Church we value our musical life highly, and we strive to offer our very best in our musical worship of our Creator God.


Members of the parish find expression in various choirs at Christ Church.

The Parish Choir exists to lead the sung worship of the people of God in the pews at Christ Church, and to make musical offerings during the liturgy, offered to God, for his glory, and for the inspiration of his people. The Choir is open to adults and older youth. The music director likes to get to know potential choir members at a brief interview. Dave Leahey and Treece Efird train and direct this group.


The Canterbury Choir is for parish children and youth beginning in the first grade. The group sings in church about once a month. Treece Efird is the director, with assistance from Dave Leahey, Ivy Modjeski, Dianne Davis, and choir mothers Susan Mosley and Kirsten Efird.

The Christ Church Ringers play English handbells in worship several times a year. Danny Lyons is the director.

Music at Christ Church is this parish’s community classical music concert series. Christ Church is known for its excellent music. At the heart of our music ministry resides The Kney Organ which is the result of an anonymous gift made by one family in 1973. At that time it was the largest single gift by a donor in the Churches' 150 year history. Our Kney Pipe Organ was custom built by Gabriel Kney & Co., Ltd. of London, Ontario to take advantage of the acoustics under The Great Dome. Through that single gift, the Kney Organ continues to be the cornerstone of our music ministry as well as our outreach to the community through our 'Music at Christ Church' concert series.
