SSPC Handbell Choir

Through weekly worship, the proclamation of the Word, opportunities for Christian education, service to the church and to the community, and active Christian fellowship, the congregation of Sinking Spring Presbyterian Church seeks to learn and to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ.  The Ministry of Music seeks to enhance these weekly opportunities by joining together, in Christian song, those words and music that repeat the message of salvation and proclaim God's word.

Our congregation worships on Sunday morning at 8:45  and 11:00 a.m.  Additional opportunities for worship - Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Palm Sunday, Easter Sunrise, and Christmas Eve take place each year.

Chancel Choir



Adult Handbell Ensemble

(High school through adult) This group is our five octave hand bell choir.  Initial entry into this ensemble may be on a substitute ringer basis until a more permanent spot becomes available.  While it is not required, it is most helpful if one has some prior musical knowledge, especially when it comes to reading music. Always ready for a challenge, this group enjoys ringing the great classic hymns of the church, as well as some of the more modern works of recent years.   This  Adult Handbell Ensemble rehearses on Wednesdays 6:30. Typically this group rings for worship approximately every six weeks, as well as for Christmas Eve.

Children Choir


Music Makers

This is our children's vocal ensemble. (preschool through 2nd grade)  This group sings a variety of music ranging from simple children's songs to two-part choral literature. A Children's Musical is rehearsed and presented, usually at Christmas time, on an every other year basis. Weekly rehearsals take place on Wednesday afternoon from 4:30-5:00.
