LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR CHOIR
Our church is gifted with talented singers and musicians who lead us in worship service every Sunday. Even though Choir was ready on the first day of the congregation, Choir became an organization officially on March 13, 2016. The Parish Choir was affiliated to the Department of Sacred Music and Communication (DSMC) as on July 28 2016. So far choir has conducted 2 auditions and have 30 members.
The choir has a mission which is to serve the church and in turn serve God by delivering songs in worship and praise, endeavor to develop a sense of spiritual well-being among the parishioners and to provide opportunities to the youth to participate in the Qurbana service in a meaningful way.
The choir gathers every Sunday for church service and hold regular practices in preparation for each Sunday Service. The members also gather in a Song Fellowship once every quarter and an outreach event once every year. This provides an opportunity to not only learn new songs but also to have a closer relationship with each other that goes a long way in building a sense of unity and purpose.
A regular feature of the choir service is the Easter program and the Christmas Carol Service. These programs are aimed to deliver the message of the bountiful love of God to mankind. It is hoped that these programs will instill a holistic feeling of the season in contrast to the otherwise commercial flavor of these seasons that is so common today.
