Recommended Music Resources

Music serves in worship as praise, prayer, and proclamation (1 Chronicles 25:1; Psalm 51; 96). It is also something that we can use effectively to ascribe eternal worth to our great Saviour. Here are some recommendations of books and music CDs that promote biblical and God-centred use of music both in your daily devotion and congregational worship.

All resources are available from our Church Library.
