Welcome to the Music pages of Bethesda Church

bethesda_8-qprMusic is an important part of our regular services, and of our church life. Come and join us!

Bethesda Singers meet in the sanctuary every Thursday at 7.30pm to rehearse a simple introit for most Sunday services, or to work on special seasonal pieces. You don’t have to read music to be part of our lively chorus! Our Autumn rehearsal season starts on 7th September 2017.  

Music Group is an occasional gathering of musicians who play for special services and events. All levels of experience, and all instruments, are welcome.

Organists and Keyboard Players are eagerly sought for accompanying the hymns and worship songs for all services. We have a rota of musicians to share this task, and would enthusiastically welcome new players.

Special music for our Opening Celebrations and Introits. We all thoroughly enjoyed being a part of our re-development services. It was a thrill to sing with trumpets, harp, flute, timpani and our magnificent organ. “Praise Ye The Lord” was written by our own Clive Rogers, who has also composed a number of introits for us, which will be unveiled throughout the year. Planning ahead, we look forward to Faure’s Requiem with an augmented chorus and instrumental accompaniment in 2018.

Bethesda’s Music Group plays at special services, and the Bethesda Singers support our main Sunday worship each week.
