Music is an essential part of the services at St. Matthew’s. We are extremely blessed by the amount of musical talent within the church but we are always looking for more, either to develop people’s gift or to develop into leadership.
The two Sunday services are quite different in their musical approach:
- At the 8.45 service of prayer the music is simple, usually a hymn or worship song accompanied only by piano or organ.
- At the 10.30 service there is a band with a mixture of music, usually including a hymn, a child-friendly song and a variety of contemporary songs. At present we have three band leaders who use the different musical personnel in the church. Instruments used include the organ, drums, keyboard, guitar, bass, and flute.
