Music at St. Helena's

St. Helena's Choirs

For many, we seek and find God through music. At St. Helena’s, music is an important facilitator of our worship, and everyone is encouraged to participate as we lift heart and soul and voice to serve the King of kings. Come and join us in making a joyful noise unto the Lord. To join any of our choirs listed below, contact John Stender, Director of Music, at 843-522-1712, ext. 214, or email him at
  • The Parish Choir consists of approximately 40 men and women who love to sing God’s praises. Some read music well; others follow and learn as they go. All levels of musical experience are welcome. Members of the Parish Choir are welcome to join in theory classes offered on Saturdays approximately twice each month. The Parish Choir sings each Sunday at the 10:15 am service of Holy Eucharist, as well as all special occasions during the church year. Rehearsals are 6:00 pm-8:00 pm on Thursdays (August-May).

  • St. Helena Choir of Boys and Girls consists of children in grades three through high school. Choristers learn musical skills and theory through the Voice for Life curriculum of the Royal School of Church Music in America (RSCM). Choristers join the Parish Choir at the Sunday 10:15 am service of Holy Eucharist and for many other special occasions in the church year. Rehearsals are 4:00 pm-5:30 pm on Wednesdays (September-May).
