诗班

choir


诗班的成立:

在华文崇拜开始之初,有两位姐妹,看见几位年轻弟兄姐妹具有音乐的恩赐,于是召集并培养他们在音乐上成长与服事。日后,有热爱音乐与歌唱的成员陆续加入,亦有圣乐牧者的带领,诗班逐渐成形。然而,由于当中弟兄姐妹的工作多是轮班制,因此人数的流动性非常的大。当诗班员谦卑地追求属灵生命的成长和进步以及音乐上的装备,成员至今也就逐渐更委身于这圣乐服事。诗班亦是孕育崇拜主领、伴唱的摇篮;目前崇拜团队中大部分的成员,皆是从诗班中培育而出。



诗班的宗旨:

歌罗西书3:16 你们要让基督的道丰丰富富地住在你们心里,以各样的智慧,彼此教导,互相劝戒,用诗章、圣诗、灵歌,怀着感恩的心歌颂 神。


♫ 以诗歌和音乐荣神益人!



诗班的使命:

如同祭司、先知、教师的职分:

1) 祭司-献祭的服事:引领会众以圣乐向神呈献祷告、感恩及赞美的祭。

2) 先知-宣扬的服事:以诗歌歌词传达神的话语和信息,宣扬神的作为和爱。

3) 教师-教导的服事:教导会众学习颂赞神,藉着诗歌彼此教导、劝勉、实践圣经的教训。



诗班排练时间:

每周主日,早上 11点 – 12点半,教会二楼崇拜厅。




Establishment of the Choir

At the inception of the Chinese Worship Service, two sisters-in- Christ discovered a few younger brothers- and sisters-in- Christ have the gift of music. Thus they were recruited to be equipped with greater musical skills to serve in the music ministry. Thereafter, others who love music and singing joined in under the leadership of the Music Pastor. Thus the Choir took shape. However, due to the nature of shift work of several members of the Choir, the turnover of the Choir was rather high. When the Choir members humbly pursued growth in their spiritual life and development of their musical skills, they grew in commitment to this sacred music service. From the Choir, worship leaders emerged and so did the accompanying worship team. Most of the members of the current worship team are offshoots of the Choir.



Goal of the Choir

Colossians 3:16 “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”


♫ Glorify God and Edify People through Hymns and Music.
