Music is a vital and exciting part of our worship at St. Philip’s, and new participants of all skill-levels are always welcome to come and sing or play! 

Our 9am worship features an eclectic blend of music ranging from bluegrass to ancient chant to modern praise to classic hymnody (on either the piano, organ – or from one of our 7 musical ensembles).  It’s not uncommon to hear songs drawn from both the ‘secular’ and ‘sacred’ cannons – which express our worship of God!  The praise ensembles begin the 9:00 o’clock service with a time of praise music – and also lead some of the music during communion and a closing song.  If you enjoy singing worship songs – or playing a musical instrument, come along and join with us.  A willingness to participate won’t commit you every week, as the many teams take turns to cover the schedule. Each week the words to our praise songs are projected on a screen and we are always looking for folks who are interested in either audio or visual enhancement of the worship time. To get involved, please contact the office at office@stphilipvictoria.ca.  

Our 11:15am Sunday worship features a small but dedicated choir and traditional hymns – most of which are played on the organ.  Please contact the church office to get more involved in the choir or other traditional aspects of music at St. Philip.

There are, of course, other musical expressions of worship at St. Philip – including Taize Chant, and Jazz – all of which already have their own dedicated times for worship (usually on a Sunday afternoon or evening). Please see the worship drop-down menu on the homepage for more detailed descriptions of each of these.
