When in our music God is glorified, and adoration leaves no room for pride, it is as though the whole creation cried: ALLELUIA! How often, making music, we have found a new dimension in the world of sound, as worship moved us to a MORE profound ALLELUIA! So has the church, in liturgy and song, in faith and love, through centuries of wrong, borne witness to the truth in every tongue: ALLELUIA! Let every instrument be tuned for praise! Let all rejoice who have a voice to raise! And may God give us faith to sing always: ALLELUIA!

The text of this wonderful hymn by Fred Pratt Green was written in 1972 for a Festival of Praise and is exactly what our mission is at GBPC through a music ministry that has grown by leaps and bounds. This mission of glorifying God with our musical offerings is also the vehicle we use to fulfill the stated mission of Great Bridge Presbyterian Church.

The choir has been privileged to make two international singing mission trips.  In 2007, the choir traveled to Germany and Austria and in 2012 to Scotland. Additionally, the choir has worked with some of the most well known composers in church music today including, Hal Hopson, John Leavitt, and Mark Hayes.  Their annual Festival of Lessons and Carols is a much anticipated community and church service.

The Chancel Choir joyfully welcomes new singers. High school students are welcome too! We meet Wednesday nights at 7:00 pm. CLICK HERE to join the choir online!
