Singing by the people lies at the heart of worship and spirituality in the Anglican tradition. At both churches our volunteer but experienced organists ensure that we enjoy music as part of our worship. Mostly we use the Anglican Common Praise which contains beautiful and melodic traditional hymns as well as more recent ones. At times we also sing from Songs for a Gospel People, a collection of recent hymns suitable for people of all ages. We aim to broaden our ‘repertoire’ by regularly adding new hymns from these and other sources. At St. Philip's the small choir assembles for special occasions, but otherwise they join the congregation.
