Chancel Choir Traditional Service in Sanctuary
The Chancel Choir has a rich heritage and is a vibrant part of the 11 a.m. Worship Service. The ensemble rehearses every Wednesday from 7:30 to 9 p.m. and presents every week in service. The group is approximately 70 strong and sings a variety of styles that includes classical, traditional, modern, spirituals and gospel. The Chancel Choir presents two annual concerts (Christmas/ Spring) and is always looking for opportunity to reach out into the community. Recent performances by the Chancel Choir include the Mozart Mass in C “Coronation Mass”, the Fauré Requiem, and the Dubois Seven Last Words, each with orchestra. Kurt Collins is our very talented organist who makes the Corbel-Zimmer organ come to life as he accompanies the Chancel Choir each Sunday. New members are always welcome.

The Gateway Ringers is Aldersgate’s primary Bell Choir, and participates in worship and special presentations throughout the year.

The Journey is our praise and worship team, and is the namesake to our 9 a.m. contemporary worship experience.
