Worship and Music Group
The Worship and Music Group is one of the subgroups of the PCC.
The function of the Worship and Music Group is to focus the Church’s attention on its vision to be people who know, love, and serve God. Its mission is to broaden our knowledge of God through preaching and to deepen our love of God through worship and prayer, in particular by ensuring that the acts of corporate worship offered to God are carried out to the highest standard possible. It is important that the atmosphere, decoration and ordering of the Church building are conducive to such worship, that people have the resources required to enable them to worship, to pray and to hear the preaching, and that all music is made as part of the offering of worship to God and in a way which inspires people and brings them closer to God. (PCC Groups Terms of Reference adopted 12 Sept 2005)
The Group has direct or supervisory responsibilities for a number of activities embracing the overall running of our Church services, from worship through music to such items as cleaning of robes and other ancillary tasks. All of these matters are an integral part of our worship at St Michael's and it is important that there is proper coordination.
