There are several references found in the Bible that reverberates the importance of music in worshipping God. Music is a most evocative art that transcends age and language. Indeed, a well-sung hymn can touch as many hearts as a well-preached sermon. Traditional hymns sung during our eastern liturgy in Malayalam evoke nostalgia among devotees and takes us one step closer to the divine. The role of music is not an end itself but a means of religious experience that is synergistic with the liturgy.
Choir is an integral part of our worship at Church. Choirs feature in the Bible’s own description of divine worship, where both men and women were organised for choral singing accompanied by instruments. In the Old Testament, we find choirs before, during, and after the temple, whereas the New Testament shows us what seem to be choirs singing in heaven. Choir is vital to worship, in the same way that prayer, praise and sacrament are part of that worship. The great value of a choir, from biblical times to the present day has been its ability to glorify the words of worship with the beauty of music.
Our choir provides indispensable leadership for worship. These angels are talented and pious musicians who bring our strong choral tradition of Kerala to Sydney.These enthusiastic men & women understand their role, and approach their task with a sense of reverence will, in turn, lead others to a profound conviction that through the music of the liturgy, we encounter the Holy God.
At our Parish, we aim to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through singing, to encourage believers in their walk with Christ, lead the congregation in worship and provide an avenue through which individuals may share their gift and be an integral part of that worship.
Our Choir comprise of parishioners from different walks of life, with varied talents but a single mission to glorify the Lord and spread the love of Jesus through music. The members meet fortnightly for fellowship, prayer and practice. A “Whatsapp” group has been set for interaction and intercessory prayer among members. We value prayer as the basis of our Ministry that enable us to love, respect and honour one another.
We are proud of their service which is very special and something to be cherished by all parishioners.
