We believe that church should be overflowing with musical and creative expression that glorifies our incredible God. Music captivates, engages, inspires and communicates a timeless message of life, hope and love to new generations. Skylark’s worship department is called Extol and we are passionate about the presence of God.
Open to all, regardless of ability level, we have an incredible team of singers, musicians, creatives and technicians and are always looking for new people to join us. Extol meets on a Thursday evening in term times to worship together, get inspired, learn new skills and new songs. So, whether you are an accomplished musician or simply love to worship, we would love you to get involved.
Pete & Nicki, our Senior Leaders, are worship leaders and songwriters. They head up Extol along with a fantastic team and have also released two live worship albums, the most recent of which is available for free download.
Here at Skylark Church, we don’t pray out of ritual, routine or religious duty but from a place of relationship with a Father who loves to communicate with us.
That relationship is at the heart of who we are and all that we do – which means that prayer plays a vital role across the life of our church. Our prayer happens both informally and formally as well as on an individual and a corporate level. We have several different forums specifically designated to seeking and hearing God for our city, nation and world.
So, if you want to get more involved then we would love to hear from you.
From hospital visits to meals, the team helps people in a range of very practical ways. We also run a regular marriage course, which has proved a valuable resource for many in the church and beyond.
Working with our amazing volunteers and a number of partner agencies across the city, we have massive vision to see our community blessed and transformed.
Through our BREATHE principles we encourage a healthy rhythm of life and our 1-2-1 model enables us to cultivate strong relationships both with God and with others.
Wherever you find yourself on your faith journey, we want to help you grow and develop to become more like Jesus.
