Of course we worship God in all we do, but worship through music is a powerful way to do it. We love making a joyful sound to praise our God.
We use mostly contemporary worship songs and instruments include guitars, bass, keyboard, drums, fiddle, saxophone, flute and various voices.
Just to give a flavour, in recent worship times we have used songs by:
- Tim Hughes
- Chris Tomlin
- Godfrey Birtill
- Paul Oakley
- Ben Cantelon
- Stuart Townend
- Reuben Morgan
- Hillsong United
- …and also a modern take on fine old hymns by Wesley and others
The sound will vary depending on which musicians are playing and who is leading. We currently have three worship leaders and fourteen musicians from whom a team is drawn each week.
We try to encourage freedom in worship, which can mean going ‘off script’ as the congregation are taken deeper into the heart worship. We want to be led by the Holy Spirit in the choice of songs, how we play and how we respond to promptings during worship.
We meet once a month as a whole team to worship and pray together, and learn new songs. The band which is to play on the Sunday gets together at 9am to put the songs together for the 10:30am meeting.
Newcomers are always welcome – a real heart for worship is a higher priority than possession of musical excellence. Just make yourself known to Chris. He is the good looking young man with the distinguished look about him (see photo at the top of this page).
