Music on Sundays at St Michael’s

Music is an integral part of St Michael’s life.
Our Sunday gatherings include instrumental “Music for Contemplation” performed by Australian and international musicians at the invitation of Rhys Boak, Music Manager and Organist.
Music is part of the church’s life becaue we understand creativity is an integral aspect of being human. Music and other art forms nourish the human spirit.

If you cannot make it to an in-church service, we continue our Online Gatherings bringing  inspirational guest musicians into your home. These are available to view each Sunday afternoon.

A list of our wonderful guest musicians and their biographies can be downloaded here
