Music

Music is an important part of any church service. This is how we approach it at Disciples Church:

The music that is sung during our worship services is to give honour and praise to God, and to edify and encourage everyone present in the service. Our music is modern, with lyrics designed to simply reflect our worship of God, what God has done for us, and our commitment to following and serving Him.

We hope to create a musical atmosphere that's emotionally fervent but only to the extent that it heightens our awareness of God's majesty. If the musical experience trumps our response to the God we're singing about, then it's idolatry, not worship. It's a fine balance and because we're all unique personalities by God's design, finding it in the midst of a community of believers requires a great deal of sensitivity and deference.

We are blessed with gifted musicians to lead the music in our worship services.
