Over the years, music has come to have an important place in the creative life of Guildford Baptist Church, and we have numbers of talented musicians and singers. Different teams help to lead the congregational worship at our Sunday services, but musicians will also be found in many other areas of Church Life, including small groups and pastorates, Children’s Holiday Club, Social Concern, NewFocus, weddings and funerals.
As a Church we love celebrating different dates in the calendar, and music plays a key part in this: in the past we have had a mini Gospel Choir, Children’s Orchestra, String Ensemble, Folk Ensemble.
Dance, too, has enhanced our times of celebration, and one of our members, Anna Henry, is a professional dance tutor with her own company uc grace.dance.
The Youth Band has recently been re-launched by our Youth Worker, Matt Lewis, and has taken its place amongst the teams of musicians who lead worship on Sunday evenings.
If you would like to join the ranks of musicians, singers and dancers, then please, in the first instance, contact our Worship Pastor, Tim Wears.
There are other weekly groups where musical and sung worship takes place, which can help people develop personal worship and reflection:
In addition to all of this there have been a number of projects, ensembles or one-off events initiated by the Church:
