He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. (Psalm 40:3)
At Malone, our aim is to make our times of sung worship to be relevant and inclusive, and to this end, a variety of worship songs are included in our services ranging from traditional hymns to contemporary worship songs.
Worship is led by a small but dedicated team of musicians and vocalists, who play a variety of instruments including organ, piano, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, drum kit and Cajun.
The aim of the worship team is to usher the congregation into the presence of God and to enable all to worship Him in spirit and truth – both collectively and individually.
The Church choir also lead worship each week and in addition participate in Christmas, Harvest and Easter services. While the choir enjoy the challenge of singing traditional choral music, they are also keen to learn contemporary worship songs and in turn to teach these to the wider church congregation. The choir rehearse (during term time) on Thursday evenings from 7.30-9pm and new members are always welcome.
A recent addition to music at Malone has been the formation of an all-age church orchestra. This ensemble played for the first time at the Christmas Carol Service 2018 and included and eclectic mix of instruments: flutes, saxophone, trumpets, violins, cello, bass guitar, drum kit and keyboard. We look forward to further developing this initiative in the future.
At Malone, we are always looking for new people to join our music team. If you are a musician or vocalist and you have a heart for worship then there most definitely is a role for you!
