Music at First Church

For more than three hundred eighty years, music has been a central part of worship and community at First UCC Milford!

We are united by our common goal to uphold the mission and vision of First Church as well as the Mission of the First Church Music Ministry which states:

"At First United Church of Christ (Congregational) of Milford, we strive to create and sustain a music ministry that provides its diverse congregation and the wider community with a variety of opportunities to praise and serve God through participation in and appreciation of great music."

Our Music Ministry offers many opportunities to praise God through music in worship, opportunities to experience music in concert inside and outside our walls and support our outreach efforts to the community, and much more.  The core of our program is our six music ensembles which offer music training and performance opportunities of the highest possible caliber for children, teens and adults in a supportive and joyful environment.  Prior experience including the ability to read music is not required to join any of our ensembles, and all are welcome to attend any rehearsal at any time during the year.  Membership in the choirs is open to all individuals who enjoy music, and are able to make the time commitment necessary to attend rehearsals and worship services. It is also open to those who's schedules require flexibility. 

Please contact our Minister of Music, Daniel Brownell, with any questions.  Please also refer to the pertinent website pages for more information.  Come be formed and reformed in the Music Ministry this year!
