Seek ye first the kingdom of God and its righteousness.

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord!

Music at St. Aidan’s

Music is an active and growing ministry at St. Aidan’s.  The primary mission of the Music Ministry is to provide the congregation with well-prepared, inclusive and dynamic anthems, hymns, service music, as well as opportunities for performance and education, which fosters spiritual growth and participation within the walls of St. Aidan’s and beyond. Repertoire ranges from the Medieval period through contemporary Christian and Gospel music. The foundation of this ministry stems from our Chorister’s Prayer: “Grant that what we sing with our lips, we may believe in our hearts; and what we believe in our hearts, we may show forth in our lives, through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Folk Ensemble

The St. Aidan’s Folk Ensemble is a Music Ministry which enhances spirituality via worship and praise music, presented at various church services and other functions during the year. Our goal is to inspire and lead others to participate in musical worship, not to perform or entertain. We have incorporated such instruments in our renditions as guitar, piano, flute, clarinet, violin, and hammered dulcimer, but are always open to expanding with additional musicians and/or other instruments. We love making a joyful noise unto the Lord, and hope to inspire others to walk more closely with Christ, whether playing and/or singing, because “Those who sing pray twice!”

For more information, please contact Charles Higgs, Director of Music Ministries at music@staidans.org or 404-563-9270 or Keith Richards at golfpawkr@aol.com.
