Organ music and choral singing play very important roles in each church service and are focal points for praise in various ways.
"Music is the bicycle upon which the liturgy rides" is a quotation by Thurston Dart, Professor of Music at Cambridge and later King's College, London.
A Choir Prayer
Accept in Thy mercy O Lord God, the service of us who render Thee praise in this church. May we serve Thee with glad hearts and dedicated lives, and grant by the ministry of music Thy name may be glorified, and the hearts of the people be uplifted in worship and love, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
