About Our Music

The Music Ministry of University Christian Church seeks to glorify God through meaningful worship and music performances. Music is an important avenue to worship, helping the congregation to pray, praise, and proclaim God’s message. Through weekly anthems and musical offerings we seek to create affective moments of understanding that deepen our faith and help to make real the rational discernments in our hearts. The Belltower Series goes beyond weekly worship to provide concert events as a gift to the Fort Worth community.

UCC’s music program offers handbell ensembles for youth and adults. They ring regularly during morning worship and annually for the Boar’s Head and Yule Log Festival. Additionally, the UCC Bell Ringers, for grades 9–12, enjoys quadrennial tours of England.

Since its founding in 1873, the Chancel Choir has played an integral part in the life of the church. They have enjoyed international and national tours, various concerts in collaboration with TCU choirs, and six holiday concerts with the New York Pops Orchestra at Carnegie Hall. The choir continues that heritage by commissioning new choral works, including “The Tyger and the Lamb”, a commissioned work for chorus and orchestra by Ola Gjeilo in 2020.

The Sanctuary organ is the main instrument we utilize in our music and it has a story all its own.

The Organ History

The University Christian Church Handbell Choir returned to St Andrews Church in Nuthurst on Friday 7th July 2023 as part of its quadrennial tour of England.
