Music is a vital and exciting dimension of our worship together. It allows us to connect with God and one another in a joyful way. The music styles we draw on are a varied as the people in our church family – the exquisite organ works of Bach, the rich choral anthems of Brahms, the freedom of jazz, the energy and passion of pop and rock.
