About Us

Who's who

We believe that the creative arts are an important part of the way Christians express their worship of God. In the Bible we read that God is the ultimate Creator, and that he has made us in his image. Therefore we are made to be creative. God is honoured when we offer that gift of creativity as an act of worship.

Cantus Firmus seeks to encourage people to develop creative skills in such areas as music, dance, drama, art and creative writing. The aim is to enrich the lives of individuals and Church fellowships

We work in partnership with Churches to help them develop their use of music and other creative arts in worship and in mission. We do this through our choirs and musicians.

Our ministry also includes

     •     Creative worship events

     •     Workshops for developing breadth of approaches to worship

     •     Larger scale musical presentations

The main focus of Cantus Firmus Trust is in North Essex and Suffolk but our work also takes us around the UK.
