Why we’ve come together

Our vision is to equip congregations with biblical and expressive songs so that God’s people might “come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him” Psalm 95, KJV

Biblical
Biblical: because we believe the Bible is God’s truth with unique power to save and transform.
Biblical
Expressive
Expressive: because biblical truth expressed with depth and beauty helps us worship God with heart, mind, soul and strength.
Expressive
Congregations
Congregations: because corporate singing is a powerful gift from God, not only for praising him, but for strengthening each other with the word of Christ for the journey ahead.
Congregations
Joyful noise
Joyful noise: because God is honoured when his people praise him with heartfelt love and abandon. (We love the KJV translation of this verse.)
