Handbell Choir

Handbells 43

Manchester United Methodist Church has a long standing history of music and the worship arts. Our Ringing Choirs help you experience the joy of music and the satisfaction of praising God as you serve in cultivating your God-given talents in ministering to our congregation and the community through sharing handbell and handchime music.

All choirs serve monthly in worship, at the annual Fine Arts Celebration, at Hanging of the Greens and at Christmas time. Gifted and blessed with 5 octaves of Schulmerich Handbells and 7 octaves of Malmark Handchimes, our choirs enjoy praising God with their music!

Newcomers are always welcome! If you would like to learn more and share your musical gifts, please complete the form below.
