- Several times a year the Church conducts Special Music Nights (usually Saturdays), featuring The Southern Cross Vocal Band with their brand of Southern Gospel Quartet harmony singing, as well as individual performances by each of the artists.
- The well-travelled Gospel singer, Gavin Chatelier pops in on a yearly basis for a special concert. His silky voice does great honour to many of the classic Gospel songs.
- A couple of times a year we have an “old-fashioned” Gospel Sing, where both artists & congregation join in the singing of some of the old, but enduring hymns & Gospel songs.
- “Each Sunday morning Gospel Singer, David Lamb, brings his own special brand of Southern Gospel style music to supplement the singing of the great hymns of the faith. The first & third Sunday night Services of each month also feature special music items by visiting Gospel singers: Bruce Groves & Gordon Cooke.
The Southern Cross Vocal Band is a male quartet which brings the style of Southern Gospel (also known as Gaither music) to audiences in Australia.
Their motto is ‘To present Christ crucified, risen and returning, through the ministry of music’.
Each member of the group has trusted Jesus Christ as their own personal Saviour and as such not only is their music 100% gospel, but each song they perform has been carefully selected for the words and the message it delivers.
Whether singing during a church service or in a full 2 hour concert, their music not only encourages and inspires Christians but also strongly challenges the non-Christian for the gospel of Christ.
Not only do they sing as a quartet, but each member is also a soloist in his own right. As such, their programs offer variety by seamlessly combining the quartet with solos, the spoken word and sometimes even some bluegrass gospel featuring the 5 string banjo.
They do not charge a fee to come and sing, neither will they interfere with any existing sound setup at a venue as they have all their own equipment which they bring and setup beforehand.
They have sung in church services, camps, Christmas celebrations and other special events over many years and are well received by audiences wherever they go.
They can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
