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 two handbell choirs. .

The children enjoy playing rhythm instruments, as well as Orff instruments. We talk about the words of anthems we sing and the children learn about God through the medium of music. They sing in church approximately every 6 weeks.
