joelschwindtPlease contact Joel at if you are interested in contributing to the music of CCoT; all forms of worship are welcome! Feel free to simply drop in and join us for rehearsal any time—no audition required!

The Chancel Choir (adult singers, high school age and up) that sings most Sundays from Homecoming Sunday in September through Memorial Day. Rehearsals are Thursday nights from 7:30-9 p.m. and Sunday mornings from 8:30-9, both in the sanctuary of the meetinghouse. We hope that all members can make it to rehearsal on a regular basis, but you are welcome to join us whenever you are able.

The Bell Choir is a group of adult hand bell players (age exceptions made upon request) that performs 4-5 times per year. Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings from 6:30-7:15, and 8:30-9:00 a.m. on Sundays on which the group is performing.

The Chancel and Bell Choirs also put on an annual Christmas Concert, which coincides with Topsfield’s “Holiday Walk.” For this concert, the choir prepares a large work, the Bell Choir contributes selections, and all of us help to lead a Christmas carol sing-along.

The Children’s Choir is a group of young singers (ages 5 to 14) who perform 3-4 times per year.  The group holds 3-4 rehearsals on Sunday mornings after services in the sanctuary during the weeks leading up to performances.

The Church Band is a pick-up group of instrumentalists and musicians who perform music primarily in folk styles.  They usually participate in the Homecoming Sunday service in September, and other special services during the year.
