Music Ministries


The West Newton United Presbyterian Church glorifies God in many ways.  One of our passions is to bring joy to the community and congregation through music.  At WNUPC, there's always a note to sing, and always a bell to ring!

Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir sings each Sunday from September to May in service, offering new contemporary anthems and leading our congregation in hymns.

Since 2009, it has helped to celebrate the Christmas season with the service of Lessons & Carols, in the style of the Christmas Eve service in the King's College Chapel of Cambridge.


The Chancel Choir rehearses Thursday evenings at 7:00pm in the sanctuary, as well as at 9:15 am on Sunday mornings before service.

Bell Choir

Our Bell Choir is currently in need of a director.  If anyone is interested please contact the church office at 724-872-7414 or email us at

   Special Music

In the summer, our music ministry offers special music each week. It often features the kids of our summer VBS, the voice and piano of music director Jim Sykes, and featured musical guests from around Westmoreland County.


For more information about our music program, or to come join us, contact any choir member or Jim Sykes.
