Adult ChoirMusic Programs

Music plays an important part in the life and worship of the Congregational Church of Brookfield. Our music ministry offers a variety of opportunities for members to express and share their faith through music.

We have three singing choirs and three handbell choirs. Our singing choirs begin with with kindergarten children and continue through adults. Our handbell choirs begin in fourth grade and play 5 octaves of Schulmerich bells and 3 octaves of handchimes.
