Music at St. John’s is alive and integral to our worship.

We’re a congregation of singers, led by our enthusiastic Minister of Music Matthew O. Thomas and our choir. Our music program is diverse and lively, particularly at the Sunday 10 am Eucharist. Our music draws from many cultures and traditions, including Taize, the Iona Community, the 1982 hymnal, Lift Every Voice and Sing II, and more. One highlight is the annual Messiah sing-along. We enjoy learning music from around the world, often in original languages, and our services are often enhanced by instrumentalists from within the congregation and the Williams and surrounding communities.

Our choir enjoys a diverse repertoire, from Renaissance motets to contemporary selections, and St. John’s hosts a rich variety of musical concerts throughout the year, especially in the summer.

We hope to grow our music programming for young people and children in the Fall.
