Music Ministry

Leaside is blessed with a highly capable choir who provide special music on Sundays, such as the prelude and choir anthem. Our four section leads and the music director also provide leadership for our online worship services by recording videos for the hymns, contemporary praise music, and anthems – these videos are shown on-screen during the online services, in place of congregational singing. Learn more about our section leads below!
