The worship group form part of the music-for-worship team here at Christ Church. With a flexible membership of around 17, we are a group of music-loving, worship-loving, singing and instrument-playing people who aim to share our joy with our fellow Christians week by week. Led by Beck Donaldson and working alongside our clergy, we provide music to enhance the themes of each service and to draw people into God’s presence. Sometimes exuberantly up-beat, sometimes reflective, our music is drawn from a wide variety of sources eg Iona responses, Psalm Songs, traditional hymns played by brass quartets, contemporary worship songs, new versions of old hymns etc – where appropriate we’ve used jazz classics, film music and chart hits containing sacred truths which can all help 21st century souls to see the face of God.
On Christmas Eve we provide the music for not one, but two hugely popular Christingle services which have become a seasonal highlight for the local community. Ranging from secular classics and Christmas chart hits to deeply reflective music, we are privileged to help lead around 1,000 people towards a richer understanding of the Christmas message.
Why is it SO GOOD being in the worship group? Because there’s room for everyone who needs to be here! And because the praise and worship of our Creator is the most important thing we can ever do ...
