Worship & Arts

Our Worship & Arts Team plays a vital role in leading All Angels’ Church in worship each week. We help our community to engage with God through music, visual art, theater and drama, verbal arts, dance, audio-video and more. Gathered worship is a collective endeavor, so as participants in the Worship Arts team, we work together to develop our own habits of worship, prayer, and service as we seek to be formed into God’s image. We also celebrate learning and those who serve in worship at All Angels’ are encouraged to stretch out, take risks, and grow their creative and leadership skills. Do you play an instrument or sing? Could you write a prayer or a script? Do you enjoy operating audio-visual equipment? If yes, we’d love for you to join our team!
