Our Music – We sing a variety of psalms, hymns, and musical responses in our services.
The Ward Hill Church Choir and the Ward Hill Church Children’s Choir sing throughout much of the year, especially during the seasons of Advent/Christmas and Lent/Easter. Christ the King Brass Ensemble also plays during those special seasons.

The Service of the Lord’s Day is a renewal of the covenant relationship between God and his people. In Christ through Word and Sacrament, God forgives our sins and calls us to obedience. In turn, we respond in gratitude and commit ourselves to walk with God by His grace.
While the substance of our service is rooted in tradition, we believe in a living tradition, not dead traditionalism. We invite all people to worship, and it is our hope and prayer that all will feel welcome.
