Music | St George's Church

St George's PCC met on 7th July to consider how we can safely open the church for worship. We decided that the first service back in church will be on Sunday 19th July at 10.45. There is a lot to do to prepare and information about returning to church will be posted on this page in a few days time. The online service will continue on a Sunday morning at 10.45 as we know that, at the moment, for many people coming back to the church building would not be the right thing to do. Join St George's for Morning Worship on Facebook at 10am Monday to Thursday. The prayers and readings for all the Sunday services in July can be found on the right side bar of the 'Whats on' page. We continue to pray for all those involved in working to help people recover from Covid 19 and for those searching for ways to eradicate the disease. Please keep yourselves safe and if we can help you or pray for you do let us know by using the forms on this website. There is a letter from Bishop Nick in our News posts

Music

Music Group

St George’s is very blessed to have a great team of musicians amongst its congregation.

In our group we have a piano player, 3 guitarists, a horn player, a clarinet player, a drummer, a flautist and several singers. Such a variety of instrumentalists and singers means that we are able to play many different styles of music in our worship.

We try and have a mixture of old and new songs, reflective and up-lifting songs and also very much enjoy singing in four parts for Taizé services. The group leads worship each Sunday and meets during the week to prepare for the coming service. We also help with the planning of special services e.g. Christmas Carol Service.

We enjoy keeping up to date with the latest Christian music by attending concerts, listening to Christian radio and going to conferences. In 2010 we branched out from our church building and led worship in the bandstand of Clarence Park. This was a wonderful occasion despite competing with England playing Germany in the Football World Cup!

We come from many different walks of life and are at different stages in our lives, from those still in full time education to slightly more mature members (!). As fellow Christians we have a common aim which is to enable our congregation to enter deeper into worship and relationship with God through musical worship and it is a privilege to be given the opportunity to do so.
