Music Ministry

The Music Ministry at Hampton Baptist Church involves everyone, from pre-school through adults, and incorporates a variety of musical genres.

The mission of Hampton Baptist Church is celebrated in the act of corporate worship. Music is a vital ingredient within the context of the spoken Word. Indeed, there are many times when music enhances the experience of the spoken Word. The Music Ministry provides an important dimension in communicating God’s majesty while always emphasizing the highest musical standards.

The long-standing Music Ministry of Hampton Baptist Church has always aspired to set the standard for quality church music in the Hampton Roads area.

We have always been truly blessed with many excellent musicians, both in the position of Minister of Music/Organist, as well as talented singers and instrumentalists within the congregation and community.

Whether you are a beginning or seasoned musician, there is a group for everyone to share their talents and be a part of this thriving ministry of the church.

No audition is required for choirs and childcare is provided weekly for Sanctuary Choir rehearsals. 

The Youth and Children’s Choirs rehearse and sing September-May.
