Church Choir

  • Oh shout with joy in praise of the Triune God!

    He is truly magnificent and his grace is marvellous!

    Our diverse congregation is blessed with an abundant range of vocal gifts from the continents of Asia, Africa, Europe. These gifted musicians and vocalist are emblematic to our God’s diverse creations, yet united in speaking the most common universal language, Music!

    Our worship is embellished with melancholy of our choristers who render in four parts the devotion that binds our congregation to raise its praises in full spiritual abandon.

    The junior choir are equally passionate and dedicated to put in the hard work to take up the mantle of their seniors as the years go by. Our choir is directed by Mr.Sanjeeva Palapathwala,  a classical pianist, organist and a voice coach under whose helm the great masters of ages past come alive inside our stain glass windows.

    If you have the passion, the dedication and the desire to learn you are most welcome to this great altar of faith.Our practise sessions are held at 11:30 am every Friday’s and the junior choir practise between 7:00-8:00 pm every Thursdays. On special festive occasions the additional practise sessions are decided by the choir director.

    So if you believe you have choirs of angels inside you lung, you have a place here to set them out!

    Draw me Nearer

    I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice,

    And it told Thy love to me;

    But I long to rise in the arms of faith

    And be closer drawn to Thee.

     

    Refrain:

    Draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord,

    To the cross where Thou hast died;

    Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessed Lord,

    To Thy precious, bleeding side.

     

    Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,

    By the pow’r of grace divine;

    Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,

    And my will be lost in Thine

     

    Oh, the pure delight of a single hour

    That before Thy throne I spend

    When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God

    I commune as friend with friend!

     

    There are depths of love that I cannot know

    Till I cross the narrow sea;

    There are heights of joy that I may not reach

    Till I rest in peace with Thee.
