The music ministry at St. John's, under the direction of Minister of Music, William Clisham, is an important part of worship and outreach to Salem and the surrounding area. Music, led by Music Minister William Clisham, is an integral part of the 10:30 service each Sunday with outstanding vocals from the choir and beautiful instrumentals from our organ. The choir consists of volunteer singers with professional section leaders.
The choir also sings at liturgies in Holy Week and other Holy Days and sings special Evensong services several times each season. The music is drawn largely, but not exclusively, from traditional Anglican and classical sources. If you are interested in being part of the choir, please contact Bill through the church office or at the organ after the postlude each Sunday.
Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts.
St. John’s Church is fortunate to have the largest and most versatile pipe organ in Salem County, a three-manual, 30 rank organ built by Kimball in 1937, modified and enlarged in 1967, and still maintained by Jacob Gerger & Sons.
