Our Ministries

Music

Our music ministry involves over 40 members of a wide age range.

Our enthusiastic Church Choir, with around 25 members, leads the praise on most Sunday mornings. Practices are held on Thursday evenings at 8.30pm from September to Easter. There is a lively, friendly atmosphere within the choir as music is prepared for regular Sunday worship and special occasions.

Complementing the choir, we have a Worship Group which leads the more modern praises and introduces new ones on a regular basis. This group comprises a number of singers alongharvest service 2015 022 with organ, piano, drums, guitars, violins and flute. Practices generally take place on Thursday evenings before choir.  We aim for a relaxed atmosphere where members have input regarding new material and ways of performing it.

Our Instrumental Group also plays at services from time to time, the highlight being the Christmas Carol Service. This group is made up of the musicians of the Worship Group together with other string, brass and woodwind players, of secondary school age and beyond. We also try to encourage younger members who are learning an instrument at primary school, by giving them the opportunity to play at services organised by the Sunday School.

All of these musical activities are co-ordinated by the Musical Director, Mrs Helen Lewis. A Service Plan is drawn up for about three months at a time, so that all involved can see when they will be leading in worship and when practices will be held.christmas at killead 2015 028
