St. Andrew takes pride in its music ministry and offers a broad spectrum of opportunities to enhance worship through music. Music enlivens our spirits and moves our souls. It is a vital part of our worship services. Our music ministry includes traditional and contemporary music reflecting the diversity of our church members and our congregation participates in singing at each service throughout the year.


Our Chancel Choir sings at the 9 a.m. traditional worship service. The repertoire of the Chancel Choir includes varied music of all styles and periods. The Choir is open to all from high school age to senior members. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. and on Sunday mornings in the music room. There is no audition for joining the Choir—all are welcome!

  • If you have a musical talent and can’t make a weekly commitment to join the Seaside Chancel Choir, you are welcome to sing for special occasions (holidays, cantatas, etc.). We would be happy for you to join us as your schedule allows.
  • We encourage children and youth to join our Seaside Youth Choir which sings periodically throughout the year. Children from Kindergarten through Middle School are invited to join in singing praises to the Lord!
  • St. Andrew has a complete set of handbells. We welcome new members to join the Seaside Bell Choir. This is a wonderful opportunity to praise God through music.
  • We also welcome instrumentalists of all ages to participate in our music ministry. Whether you are comfortable playing solo, in a small ensemble, or accompanying the Choir, you are welcome to share your talent!

Please contact Bruce Gale, Hilton – Director of Music at bruceghhiumc@gmail.com if you are interested in joining our Music Ministry. Help us to enhance our services by sharing your musical talents!
