Music at St. John’s embraces the rich musical tradition handed down from the Church of England and the Episcopal Church USA to interweave the highest forms of music from the past and the present into our worship. If you would like to be a part of music at St. John’s there are many ways to participate.  Please contact Joel Gregory at joel@stjohnsmontgomery.org or call the church office to let us know of your interest.
