Walking through history into the future with Christ
 
We welcome all into a
Christ-centered community that nurtures and values each member.
 
We practice our faith through biblically-based liturgy, preaching and music.
 
We teach young and old about God through our Anglican tradition.
 
We reach out through our talents and resources to our visitors, our community and our world.
 
Inaugural Organ Celebrations
 
Tonal finishing is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, April 30. During this stage each pipe will be adjusted to sound best in our specific acoustic space, a procedure known as “voicing” the organ. Because this demands acute listening, the church will be closed to visitors Monday through Friday, although the evening concerts will continue to take place.  The church will be able to be open every weekend through this process, which will likely last through July.
    We will continue to use the portative (continuo) organ and harpsichord for services and concerts until the Dobson organ is completed.  Inaugural celebrations are set for the month of September, with  special events scheduled every weekend after Labor Day.  More details will follow, but be sure to save these dates:
 
Saturday, September 7 @ 8pm
Sunday, September 8 @ 5:30pm

Gala Inaugural Concerts
Gordon Stewart, resident concert organist at Huddersfield Town Hall in England
 
Sunday, September 15 @ 5:30pm
Choral Evensong with a commissioned anthem of Philip Stopford and a commissioned prelude
for organ and handbells by Sondra Tucker
 
Saturday, September 21 at 8pm
Music for Organ and Instruments
Saturday, September 28 at 8pm
New Music for a New Organ, with commissioned works by Dan Locklair,
Tom Trenney, and Aaron David Miller
 
This new instrument is the result of over a decade of careful planning and with the generosity of many, guided by a farsighted vision for our future. It will serve Bruton Parish for many decades to come, and I hope you will each have an opportunity to share in its unveiling as the organ begins its life in the thriving music program at our church.
