Austin has been with the band for the last 6 years. He leads worship that leads you into the very throne room of God. A budding guitarist, he took up learning the bass as we had no one to play it.  This is how our team serve one another by doing whatever it takes to make it happen. Austin has faithfully led our serving teams over the years. He is growing in his preaching and prophetic gifts. He is compassionate and kind. We love having Austin around. We are privileged to have loyal people like him on our team.

Vocalist - worship leader with abandon

Lasya has been on the worship band for the last 5 years. Trained in Indian classical she brings a unique quality to our voice mix. From just a backup vocalist she has grown to be a powerful worship leader who commands things to happen in the heavenlies. She is growing in her prophetic gift and in songwriting. We have introduced a few of her songs in church with many more in the pipeline. She leads a Gym group and helps with some of the administration. She is a Lawyer by profession. All our team members have learned to serve on Set up teams and she is no exception. She will do whatever, wherever to serve the body of Christ. What a privilege to have such men and women of valor serving alongside each other.

The Sound Lady - what would we do without her?

Vijaya has been our sound engineer for the last 3 years. From knowing nothing about sound except for a heart to learn, she is the one that makes us sound good! She has been at the mixing desk faithfully every Sunday, making sure the levels are good we have our worship and sermon recorded so that they can be uploaded to the website. She also serves on the setup team ( no surprise there) and serves with a smile. She is an integral part of the Band. Without her we would have no sound. We are grateful for the unflinching service with a good spirit of wanting the best of everyone.
