The Worship Ministry Team encompasses the musicians and singers of the Music Team, PA and Powerpoint Teams, and the Banner Group. These groups come together to provide an environment to encourage an atmosphere in services to deepen our knowledge of Christ and to take the Gospel out into the community.
The Music Team rehearse monthly, playing and singing a variety of christian hymns and worship songs reflecting the styles of both the Contemporary Morning Service and the Traditional Evening Service. They occasionally perform songs as items in services.
The PA and Powerpoint Teams manage the audiovisual elements of sunday services, plus are usually on hand at special events in the church.

What we did in 2015:
The Banner Group crafted new banners, re positioning and maintaining existing banners to complement the chapel space.
Worship Team visit to New Wine Worship Conference – we took a small team to this event held at Cornerstone Church, Swansea; a great source of encouragement and growth.
Worship practices spending time developing flow, freedom and learning new songs for fresh expressions of worship.
Commission, installation and early stages of training on new Audio-Visual system – we thank God for the funding from the church and grant funding to be able to upgrade the projectors and PA, allowing us to overcome the obstacles that hindered effective ministry during our services.
What we plan to do in 2016:
Make full use of our sound and visual system to enhance worship services.
Practice time spent going deeper in worship, continuing to develop freedom and flow – opening some practices to the church as a whole to join us for a time of song and prayer.
Explore new outlets for worship and witness with new AV system in place.
Take a bigger group to 2016 New Wine Worship Conference, and also explore visits to other conferences.
