As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another,
as good stewards of God's varied grace'
-1 Peter 4:10
At Purley Baptist, we believe that gathered/corporate worship is important for meeting with the Lord, and we encourage one another in this as far as possible.
'the peoples and the kingdoms assemble to worship the LORD'-Psalm 102:22
'for where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them'-Matt 18:20
“Gathered worship excites me because it is just beautiful how it unites people. No matter who you are or where you've come from etc. we all stand and sing the same words, at the same time, in the same place, worshipping the same God. It's wonderful and uplifting!”-Meryl
The Worship Team
We currently have 47 worship team members whom are split into 7 bands. Generally, musicians are assigned to a particular band(s) to facilitate the growth of relationships within them. Between us, we play for the Sunday services, weekly services and any special events.
|We run on a quarterly timeplan in which to organise things, as this simple chart shows:||
CD of Quarter 4, 2012
Each 3-month Quarter has 4 main elements:
1. CD of the Quarter
Every quarter, we introduce a commercials CD to our church to enrich personal and gathered worship.
2. The Hub
This is an event to bring together all band members for a tiem of pray worship and practical activities such as leaning new songs and how to craft a song.
3. Enter away dates
Musicians need to enter, into our online co-ordinating system, any dates in the forthcoming quarter on which they cannot play.
4. Release Rota
Once the rota has been compiled, it is published to all band members to accept/decline any dates. Our online system also provides access to playlists to listen to songs in any key with the tabs and lyrics.
Our choice for congregational and personal worship:
Jesus by OneNameOnly,
"This album is really very special for a number of reasons"-Meryl Ching, Worship Co-ordinating Assistant

Focus for 2013: Growing individually and corporately as a worship team.
We have recently created 7 instrument groups (Bass, Drums, Flute, Guitar, Piano, Violin and Vocals) to facilitate our growing such as through sharing tips, asking for advice, and getting together to encourage and teach one another.
