Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.
— Psalm 96

Listen to the Sunday Evening Compline Service

Choirs

The Christ Church Choir sings at the 10:30 a.m. Eucharist each Sunday and at other significant worship services. Membership is open to all people with an interest in vocal music, with rehearsal each Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. and each Sunday morning at 9:45 a.m. Every Sunday evening at 7:00 p.m. a small, auditioned choir sings the office of Compline. This contemplative 30 minute service of chants and motets attracts 20 somethings and 70 somethings, musicians and listeners, all kinds of people who seek to begin each week with a prayerful end to Sunday.

Handbell Choir

This group rings occasionally at the Sunday 10:30 a.m. Eucharist and on other special occasions. Membership in this choir is open to anyone, with rehearsal each Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.

Youth Choir & bell Choir

For 2nd through 6th graders during the school year. We follow the curriculum for the Royal School for Church Musicians, which includes teaching singers how to develop good vocal technique, music theory, and repertoire. The Children’s Choir participates in worship services once a month and is an integral part of the Christmas Eve pageant. The children’s bell choir rehearses after the 10:30 a.m. service each week during the school year, and plays at the 10:30 a.m. service several times during the year.

Arts @ Christ church

Thomas Aquinas said that since God is the “supreme beauty”. Like many Christians since, we at Christ Church believe that artists, whether painters or singers, sculptors or poets, show us something of God when they show us the world’s truth and beauty. So the concerts you hear, such as Chanticleer, Anonymous 4, folk artists, local bands, and Mavis Staples, or the paintings you enjoy in our rotating display of artwork by local artists, or authors you encounter here during the Arkansas Literary Festival are part of our ministry, even when the art isn’t overtly Christian in its theme or subject matter. We believe that all beauty is of God and helps us to flourish, which is why we host and support the arts in our community.
