Fairmilehead Parish Church

Praise Band

Praise band instrumentalists

The Praise Band is a diverse and welcoming group of amateur singers and instrumentalists who are excited to explore their spirituality through music and share that joy with others. We welcome people of all ages from teenagers to the retired. Our Organist and Praise Band Leader is Andrew Sutherland.

The only pre-requisite to joining our praise band is a strong desire to express oneself musically. Previous singing experience and musical literacy is not required – in fact, around half of our singers would fit this description. The central goal of the praise band is to find enjoyment and spiritual fulfilment through performing an imaginative variety of sacred genres and musical approaches from Gospel shuffle to African chanting to the latest Christian pop!

We  rehearse from 9.30am on a Sunday morning: prior to leading the singing during Morning Worship at 10.30am.  Please  feel free to join us on a Sunday to sing/play on a regular or occasional basis. Usually, there are between 8 to 14 singers, together with 2 or 3 guitars, a keyboard, a flute and drums. We are always looking for new singers and instrumentalists to share in our passion for music and make an invaluably rewarding and satisfying offering to their church, their community and God.

Would you like to join?

If you are interested in joining the praise group talk to Andrew Sutherland, our organist and Praise Band leader anytime  on a Sunday morning, contact him via the church office, or, better still, just turn up at 9.30am on a Sunday.  You will be given a warm welcome, support and encouragement and copies of all the music. You don’t have to commit to coming along every week.  We will be delighted to see you whenever you are available to join us.
