Music plays a central role in worship at the Unitarian Church of Norfolk.

  • Contemplative gathering music provides a back drop for assembly.
  • A prelude provides an opportunity to clear the mind for worship
  • We sing several hymns
  • An offertory provides a backdrop for collection of the offering.
  • An anthem serves as a bridge between the service opening and the day’s message.
  • A postlude  serves as a bridge between the service and the rest of the day.

It is our tradition to remain seated for the postlude.

We use a mix of live and recorded music and draw our service music from traditional hymns, classical music, and popular music.

A music director assists the worship committee in planning of service music and scheduling of performers.
