Praise is at the very core of who and what we are as a congregation. The Choir and Praise Group provide a choral and instrumental lead in worship. We do not see ourselves as performers but as encouragers of all God’s people. We enjoy the challenge of learning together and sharing from the wealth of worship music from different eras and genres. Whether the hymn is Charles Wesley’s or Graham Kendrick’s we seek to sing it (or whatever else we are doing) to the glory of God.

We are a choir and praise group who are complementary. Indeed, several of us are in both. Even though none of us are prima donnas we are continually uncovering the satisfaction of blending together in what we bring to the worship life of First Larne. Whilst our regular input is to the weekly services we also prepare for special services in the Christian year, such as Christmas and Easter, and have also contributed to concerts, musical evenings and national radio broadcasts.

Now would be a good time to join us – in Choir, Praise Group or both. We would be particularly open to anyone who wants to try out with us and see how you enjoy it. New members are genuinely welcome and no prior experience necessary. All we require is a readiness to enjoy the experience and a willingness to learn with us.

Our Director of Music, Sylvia Gourley sylvia@firstlarne.org.uk is always ready to hear from prospective singers and musicians. We are particularly keen to bring young singers and instrumentalists on board. If you know someone who might respond to an invitation speak to Sylvia or any member of the choir/praise group.
