"O come, let us sing to the Lord, let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation" Psalm 95:1
St Barnabas has a long rich history of music and music plays a key role in our worship today. St Barnabas has a thriving music community, where fellowship and praising God is at the heart of all that we do. Music is something that can connect us all to each other and to God, no matter who we are.
St Barnabas celebrates different ways of worshipping and we use both traditional and contemporary styles in our services. In our Sunday morning services, we have both traditional hymns played by our organist and contemporary music from our worship group. We also have an all age family choir who sing during Christmas and Easter.
The music group meets fortnightly to worship God and to grow in fellowship with each other (all through Zoom at the moment!). The meetings give them a chance to pray and sing, but to also develop their skills as musicians and leaders of worship. St Barnabas is a multigenerational church, always looking for ways that we can encourage and empower young people to lead and we are really proud of our new Youth Band that began a few months before the first lockdown. You can see a clip from their first time leading worship in the video!
