Music » Musical Instruments
At Bethlehem, we use a wide variety of musical instruments to praise God from our pipe organ to the piano, drums, guitars, trumpets and flutes.
Music for Worship at 11am
The music for 11am worship is led by our band members at Bethlehem, with a piano or keyboard accompanying lead singers at each service and sometimes drums and other instruments as well.
Our repertoire includes contemporary Christian music, with a focus on new Christian music not regularly played in church. We have nine members who are rostered throughout the year, so that everyone has the opportunity to play about once a month.
New band members of any skill level are always welcome. Any instrument, eg flute or violin, is appreciated, even if it is not a traditional rock band instrument.
We practice in a learning atmosphere and focus on promoting and enjoying Christian music as well as developing our skills as musicians. Practice is on Saturday.
This ensemble of about nine young people was formed in Adelaide in 2007, and is the only one of its kind in South Australia.
Members play on three octaves of Malmark handbells and rehearse on Tuesday evenings at Bethlehem.
The practice of handbell ringing dates back to the 16th century in England, and today handbells are very popular in the USA, especially in Lutheran churches
Particularly during the seasons of Advent and Christmas bell ringing is integrated into one or more of our worship celebrations at Bethlehem.
