Music Ministry at Christ Church
The Worship Collective
With the Covid-19 protocols in place, our music teams pre-record while the building is closed for public worship. In time, we will see this change but in the mean time, we are grateful for the gift of music these people bring to us on a weekly basis.
Music is a vital part of our worship together at Christ Church, and we express ourselves in several different ways. On a typical Sunday, a service will be held using contemporary praise and worship music, followed by one which emphasizes more traditional forms.
What's in a song?
Welcome to worship, up close and personal. “What’s in a Song?” explores individual songs of worship and praise and offers a reflection that will hopefully add another level to your personal devotion and meditation on your faith.
Perhaps you enjoy worship music as background noise, or you long to explore and feast on it. Regardless of your interest in music, examination of the lyrics is a worthwhile activity, offering thoughts on how these song meanings might relate to us in 21 century culture.
It is the hope that through these commentaries, our corporate worship will be enriched as the songs come to life in deeper context. Consider each song and see where it takes you. If you would like to hear the songs, you can usually find some version of it on YouTube.
And when we sing these songs on any given Sunday, join us, sing loud and sing strong. We are all in this together.
