Music at St John's is a mixture of traditional and contemporary music, seeking to help all of us praise God and encourage one another. Music is generally led by singers with a band (generally made up of orchestral instruments, rhythm section and organ) - with musicians drawn from the church family. New musicians are always welcome - please get in touch using the form below.
