Songs list

St Andrew’s music team is happy to play songs and hymns from the song list below. We will also be pleased to practice and lead many of the well-known songs in Mission Praise, and potentially other songs from the sources listed at the bottom of the song list, and teach them to the congregation. There are many other possibilities! For new songs to be accompanied by the worship band we need to know at least 10 days before the Sunday required so that we can prepare properly. If there are songs not listed which you would like, please contact Steffi Campbell Smith.

Adult and general song list
