We love to worship our God! Of course worship isn’t just about singing songs to the Lord, worship is a lifestyle that has Christ at the centre of it. But when we come together we love to sing, shout, clap, and make a joyful noise to the Lord! No we’re not freaky about it, just excited! Our praise and worship is based on a couple of factors. First we celebrate God for Who He is. He is our Creator, our Provider, our Strength, our Heavenly Father, and so much more. The Bible tells us that God dwells in the midst of our praise, and so when we lift up our voices and sing to Him we feel His incredible presence right there! We also give praise to God for all He has done. The first of which is providing His own son to die for our sins. If there was nothing after that, it would be enough to constantly lift our hands to Him in worship.

We love worship so much that we want everyone to know what we know. That’s why our vision statement is this –  The Worship Community of MGA exits to create mature and influential worshippers. Come and experience God’s heart and the joy of singing about His greatness with us every Sunday!



The Worship Community of MGA oversees all the music of the church, as well as audio, video, projection, and lighting. We are always looking for good people to join the team. If you have been attending MGA for a minimum of 3 months we would invite you to attend a Worship Community Front Door meeting to find out more about us, and allow us to find out more about you. These meetings are held usually four times per year. Keep your eyes and ears open to hear the next one announced!
