Worship and Creative
Worship and creativity is at the heart of who God is. All of creation was created for Him and His glory. Central to all we do here at Greyfriars and New Hope is a desire to use our creative gifts to contribute to the life and growth of the wider worshiping community. We long for hearts of integrity with a commitment to develop skills and shepherd others in a deeper relationship with Jesus.
We gather across three services each Sunday at Greyfriars, and one at New Hope.
As a church, we are eager to encourage those whom God has gifted in music and worship. We don’t insist on formal qualifications for joining a regular worship team, but we do look for: an indication of gifting and God’s call: a basic level of competence and potential; and a willingness to make a regular, reliable commitment.
Prospective members are asked to attend rehearsals for a number of weeks prior to any commitments being made.
Sound and visuals are vital to our worship at Greyfriars and are very much part of our worship team. Good balance and clarity of sound are essential for a congregation to worship God with meaning and understanding. Our visuals teams are equally leaders of worship, alongside our musicians and sound engineers. As a large majority of our songs, creative liturgies, images and vital information are shown on screen, in this aspect the worship team play a vital role in leading our congregation through the different components of our services.
Some technical awareness and ability is needed for these roles, though training will be given. A musical ear, focused mind and cool head are essential.
