has always been an important component of the public worship of Almighty God. From earliest times humankind has expressed its deepest emotions, including its yearning for closeness to God with songs and other musical utterances. At Christ Church we value our musical life highly, and we strive to offer our very best in our musical worship of our Creator God.
