We believe that a children's choral program is vital to a child growing spiritually. It is also a valuable tool in training children to be lifelong worshippers, and a wonderful way to bless any congregation. Children learn by watching the role models un their lives, but they also learn by participating. Our Emmanuel Choristers provides the perfect forum in which they can learn, grow, move, and serve in God's kingdom.
Proverbs 22:6 says, "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." Involving our boys and girls in music and worship from an early age helps to keep them involved as teenagers and, later on, as adults.
We use the Royal School of Church Music's "Voice for Life" scheme with our young singers, a curriculum that provides a framework for choristers to develop their vocal skills, their musical understanding, and their knowledge of the repertoire.
