Music & Creative Arts

The music and creative arts ministry encompasses all forms of artistic expression as forms of ministry and worship.

“Sing to him a new song; play skilfully, and shout for joy.” Psalm 33:3

Praise & Worship

Praise & Worship is the primary role of the Music & Creative Arts ministry, facilitating the corporate worship sessions at all services, conferences and other gatherings.

In order to play skilfully as Psalm 33 suggests it is necessary to place a great emphasis on excellence. The Worship Team has time of prayer, training and rehearsal every Thursday evening from 19:00 to 22:00.

The Worship team is made up of the following groups and support staff:

  • Band – This is a great opportunity for those who have a musical talent and background to get involved. We try to accommodate as many musicians as possible. In cases where we have more than one musician for a specific instrument we work according to a rotation schedule. God is gradually adding to this group and we are excited about the future.
  • Praise Choir and Vocalists – We have a growing praise choir which is the primary entry point for vocalists. Although we strive for excellence the nature of the choir places a greater emphasis on commitment and passion than on pure talent. The Choir also has a great effect in encouraging the assembly to engage in the worship service. Outstanding voices are used as lead and backup singers and we are constantly seeking to develop new worship leaders as well!
  • Technical Support – Apart from the artistically inclined we also need the help of our technical support team. The Sound Desk and Multi-Media plays a vital role in our presentation and engagement with the worshipping audience.

Anyone who would like to get involved with any of the ministry opportunities listed above is encouraged to contact the Music Director.

Other forms of Creative Arts

From time to time new projects are run in which we also give the opportunity for other forms of creative arts to come to the fore. This may include dance, drama, signing and many more. We have a great vision to create a platform for Christian artists to express themselves through their talent within the context of the church and ministry. We therefore encourage those with a passion to see these types of ministries arise, to consult with us.
