Music & Worship at St Andrew's
Through the bible we find the whole family of God expressing themselves through song both individually and corporately. Whilst corporate song is something that is quite alien to many parts of today's culture, it remains a central part of our common life together.
In our services we seek to facilitate an environment where people feel free to worship God in both spirit and truth. Worship is about the whole of our lives, but there is something special about when people gather together to celebrate who God is and to humbly bring ourselves, warts and all, before our loving Creator.
We aim to use a wide range of music across our congregations, but with particular 'leans'
0930 - family worship led by band + organ,
1115 - rich hymnody and liturgical music, supplemented with lyrical worship songs
1800 - contemporary worship led by band.
2000 - Taize service - last Sunday of each month. Quiet, contemplative music & liturgy
The music is led by a community of worship leaders, singers and other musicians who focus on a particular service. The Music Director co-ordinates these groups, with various practices and gatherings.
In addition we assemble a St Andrew's Orchestra for special occasions, particularly the Carol Services, involving a wide range of gifted musicans.
