The Music and Worship Arts Ministry serves to promote, equip and support the growth of a lifestyle of worship. We believe worship is to be directed God-ward, is not locked into a time, a place, nor a style, and is to move us from self- centredness to spirit-filling. We understand that it is God's desire for us that everything that is expressed in our hearts, minds and bodies would continually demonstrate his worth. Through the use of music and other worship arts, we seek to lead our people towards a direct encounter with God in community with each other during our weekend services. We also use the arts to creatively share God’s love to our local community as we give witness and testimony to his work in our lives.
Building from our worship leading choir ministry, we have additional vocal opportunities for singers gifted for solo and/or ensemble ministry. We seek to develop and train singers to minister to the Lord through praise and worship and to encourage and support the congregation in our corporate worship gatherings. Vocal worship teams support our worship services and other events.
We have several ministry opportunities for instrumentalists who play piano, keyboards, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, drums and percussion. We also have opportunities for string, wind and brass players who have experience in modern ensembles/band settings. We seek to develop and train instrumentalists to minister to the Lord through praise and worship and to encourage and support the congregation in our corporate worship gatherings. Band worship teams support our worship services and other events.
Technical ministry opportunities are available for people with a passion to use their technical gifts to serve God. This includes sound board operators, lighting board operators, computer projection operators and video camera operators/switchers/directors. These teams serve during our worship services and special events.
