At St Andrew the Great we love singing together at our meetings. Here are three reasons why it’s so important to us:

 

1.

We sing to praise and rejoice in our Creator and Saviour God, because he is worthy of our adoration in everything. (e.g. Psalm 96:1-4)

2.

We sing in service of one another: encouraging and reminding one another with the most marvellous message of the gospel. (Ephesians 5:18-20; Colossians 3:16-17)

3.

We sing because the Holy Spirit uses the Word of God in our songs to change, mould and move our hearts to follow God. (Ephesians 6:17; John 6:63)


On Sundays, we tend towards a more contemporary genre of music in order to engage most relevantly with the culture around us, but we also seek to make use of the best bits of Christian music's 1000+ year history, so you may catch us deploying our organ, or occasionally assembling an orchestra or big band.

We're also keen that the musical gifts of our church family are not just restricted to Sundays. Twice a year the Ensemble in the Round puts on a concert of classical music and talks, exploring the fascinating intersection of art music and the gospel. Additionally, we want to be encouragers of songwriters and composers, writing music that will benefit and build up the church, both in Cambridge and beyond.

If you would like to know more about, or get involved in any of the above (including being a part of the hardy team of sound/video techies that makes this all possible in the first place), please email Matt MacGregor
