Music Program

One of St. Andrew’s assets is its very active music program. An experienced choir—perhaps the finest volunteer church choir in the entire country—under organist and choirmaster Timothy

G. Ruff Welch, leads the Sunday worship music. The music program is augmented by a Yamaha grand piano and an Allen organ. Many who visit to enjoy the music stay to become members.

9 Reasons To Keep The Church Choir Alive


St. Andrew's Anglican Church, Riberas del Pilar Mexico has a choir of over thirty core singers.

The Church has a long-standing, strong musical tradition, with sung Eucharist every Sunday.

The Choir's main task is helping to lead the worship of St. Andrew's Anglican Church.

Organist and Music Director and Conductor is Timothy G. Ruff Welch.  “Tim” is an organist, voice coach, soloist, and piano accompanist. With roots in Wisconsin, Tim completed his Bachelor degree at Luther College, Iowa, with majors in piano and business administration.  He attended graduate school at the College Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati, concentrating on coaching and accompanying. He came to Guadalajara from Chicago, where he was a choral director, pianist and organist.
