The Ningde Municipal CC&TSPM Sacred Music Committee carried out a two-day visit to the churches in various counties, districts, and cities in eastern Fujian from April 21 to 22.

In order to understand and promote the development of sacred music ministries in grassroots churches in Ningde City, Fujian Province, the first group of seven members of the committee visited churches in Fu'an City, counties of Zhouning, Gutian, and Pingnan.

According to the different situations of the churches in different regions, they adopted different forms of visiting.

They conducted seminars to communicate with key members of the choirs of Fu'an Church and Gutian Church. Through the discussion, in addition to learning about the situation, they provided suggestions and guidance for the development of sacred music ministry in grassroots churches. Especially in response to the pastoral care of the choir, musical quality, and ability building of members, the participants communicated and made suggestions, which not only guided the practice for grassroots churches but also clarified the work direction for the committee.

The choirs of Zhouning Church and Pingnan Church sang hymns to present their own styles. The members of the sacred music committee commented and guided the choir from the aspects of the articulation of lyrics, the grasp of rhythm, the processing of emotion of the song, the cooperation between the conductor and choir members. Citing the Holy Scriptures, they encouraged the choir members to recognize their own role, value their service and show the service of life with the most beautiful singing voice, according to the Ningde CC&TSPM.

Next week, the second group of the Sacred Music Committee of the Ningde Municipal CC&TSPM (Christian Council & Three-Self Patriotic Movement) will continue to carry out activities of visiting the grassroots churches and exchanging ideas.
