Music

Music is a powerful tool to help us worship and honour God and we’re wanting our music to really help us as much as possible in this. 

We are definitely on a journey with our musical worship which is very exciting. Some of our musicians have been stepping out in exploring new ways of leading music – particularly during the 10am service. Initiatives include looking at alternative formats of musical support and leadership, using a variety of instrumental combinations and styles, as well as amplification of vocals and instruments. The musicians aim to continue developing these ideas
 
We are blessed with many talented musicians, including organists who play at our various services (including weddings and funerals).    We often put together different music groups as well which play and sing at different events, including social events as well as Christmas services. 
 
The Trinity Music Group continues as a mainstay of the 10am service. Musician numbers have been stable (certainly not growing) and so we would welcome any musicians within or without Trinity who would like to contribute to music in worship. The music group practises before the service and plays, on average, one service every fortnight.  All levels of musical ability are welcome, from never having sung before and can't read music through to experienced musicians. There will be plenty of "note bashing", so all have confidence with the music. 
 
Support is provided to other churches in the area through playing for their services when they have no organist.  Churches regularly helped include Twyford URC, Park URC, Christ Church Woodley, Whitley Methodist Church, Burghfield Common Methodist Church and St Barnabas.

The Singing Group has, over the last several years, become an established part of Trinity Church tradition and worship. The group boasts some 20 - 30 regular singers. In total, close to 70 people have sung with the group since it was formed. Some people may not realise, but the history of the group goes back to around 1990 when the group met purely socially once a month, in members' houses.
