The Music ministry at Holy Trinity Anglican brings to our worship services a wide diversity of musical styles, from chant to contemporary. Singing is an important mode of worship in the Bible, and so congregational song figures prominently in our worship as well. There are several musical groups that rehearse weekly to prepare for leading the congregation’s musical responses and occasionally providing special musical numbers as well. Members who would like to participate in these groups should contact Paul Harris.
At about 20 singers strong, they provide weekly leadership on congregational hymns and liturgical responses. You’ll also hear them singing an anthem or introit. Rehearsals are on Thursday at the church, 6:45 – 7:45pm, and a half hour before each service. Members choose which service they would like to attend.
This smaller group of singers leads in worship every three to four weeks. They focus on sacred music of the Renaissance and early Baroque periods, as well as contemporary composers like Stephen Paulus and Arvo Pärt. Rehearsals are on Thursdays, 7:45 – 9:00pm, as well as a half hour before each service in which they sing.
The worship team provides leadership on contemporary Christian songs for Sunday morning services. They rehearse once before Sunday as well as evening each week, as well as prior to Sunday services for a warm-up and sound check. Members participate at both services on their assigned Sundays.
There are many opportunities for instrumentalists to share their gifts in worship. There is no fixed rehearsal time, but players generally meet for an hour on the Saturday prior to the Sunday on which they will play.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
Please contact Paul Harris for more information. I’d love to hear about your passion for congregational worship. Some of the groups have very specific requirements and needs (worship team and octet), others are less specific in their requirements (choir, instrumentalists, etc.).
