Congregational Church of Hooksett

Music

Hooksett UCC Choir 2016The Hooksett Congregational Church is blessed to have choir groups that share the gift of music with the congregation:

The Chancel Choir/Senior Choir

The Chancel Choir includes about 15 enthusiastic singers who rehearse one night a week during the choir season, September to June, as well as on Sunday mornings before the worship service. The group sings both standard tunes and contemporary music, and is committed to enhancing the worship service through song.

The Handbell Choir

This specialty group includes about 6-8 ringers, who play a three-octave set of handbells and a two-octave set of melody chimes. The group plays two or three times a year and rehearses for a month before each performance.

The Children’s Choir

When there are enough school-aged children interested, our choir director will organize a few opportunities a year for a Children’s Choir to gather to rehearse and sing at a few special services.  These services often include Advent services, Palm Sunday, Mother’s Day and Children’s Sunday.  The Children’s Choir, when scheduled, typically rehearses from 9:40-9:50 am before Sunday morning services.
