The High Cross contemporary singing group compliments the work of the choir by providing a different style of worship through music, featuring an expansive repertoire of more contemporary hymns by artists such as Matt Redmond and Graham Kendrick. The band members utilize instruments typical for this style including guitar, piano, bass guitar and drums.
The music they perform features a diverse range of styles including energetic pop-rock numbers, folk and country arrangements, jazz and blues-based hymns and slower, more reflective ballads. Popular with Christians of all ages, the mix of both contemporary hymns led by the singing group and more traditional hymns led by the choir ensures there is a hymn for every occasion at High Cross Church.
New members, instrumentalists and singers are very welcome. Practices take place on Wednesday evenings.
The band is currently led by David Everard, a multi-instrumentalist and graduate from The Academy Of Contemporary Music in Guildford. David is looking to further diversify the existing repertoire of the band and to encourage collaboration between the contemporary singing group and the choir.
