When the church gathers, we bring the worship of our lives to focus with songs and other contributions.

We have a large team of musicians and singers who serve the congregation in preparing and leading sung worship. Our worship coordinator, Chris Juby, is a member of UK songwriting collection Resound Worship.


We sing hymns and contemporary songs from a wide range of sources. Songs are selected on the basis of their theological, poetic and musical merit, and the overall balance of our repertoire.

Here’s a Spotify playlist of many of the songs we use at our Sunday meetings (albeit seriously lacking in hymns!):
