As a music team we aim to give people the language and means to express God’s worth to him in music.
We want to give the city the greatest reason for our faith by using music and intelligent, poetic and understandable words. We aim to give the city an encounter with music that is creative and honest. We want to equip the church to sing God’s worth with music that is a blend of heritage and current, home-grown, rich theologically and captivates the imagination with our extraordinary God.
The church is a community of singing. Psalm 33:1 instructs us to sing joyfully and make music. “Whenever Christian people come together it is impossible to stop them singing. The Christian Community is a community of singing!” – John Stott
The worship band is a team of musicians who help facilitate corporate worship times.
If you have the requisite level of musical skill and a passionate worshiper’s heart, and are already a member of Common Ground, then we’d love to encourage you to consider joining one of the teams.
Before one gets involved, however, due to the music ministry being such an integral part of our Sunday meetings, we believe it’s important for musicians to be members of Common Ground and committed to a small group. Therefore, if you are interested in serving in a CG music team, we would encourage you to sign up for DNA and get involved in a small group before coming to audition.
Each congregation oversees their own process for musicians to get involved. Once you have signed up online, an individual from your congregation will be in contact with you to discuss getting involved. In most cases it will involve an audition, but we will explain more close to the time.
God has blessed us with many keen musicians and we would love to give as many people an opportunity to serve their community with their gifts. However, the reality is that in some congregations there are limited spaces available. If your home congregation currently has fewer gaps available, you may want to consider serving in another congregation. If you would like to know more about this, let us know in the online signup form (as linked to above).
