We worship because of who God is and what he has done for us.
We worship because we have a deepening relationship with a loving God who is transforming our lives.
We worship because God is worthy.
We worship because our new identity in Christ inspires praise.
We worship because it is discipleship; It changes us and it changes others.
We worship because it impacts the spiritual realm; God dwells in the praises of his people.
We are lead worshippers from all of CSC’s five campuses. We are united in vision and purpose, while at the same time creating services that each have their own unique worship language (style of presentation). Where traditions are broadly shared and meaningful we will endeavor to maintain them in proper balance with emerging worship experiences.
As members of CSC Worship, there are four values that guide our pursuit of living out and leading others in worship. Each of these foundations are essential both on the platform, or while we are leading congregational worship, and off the platform, in our daily personal lives.
Culture of the Word
Culture of Unity
Culture of Engagement
Culture of Development
Our Worship teams serve at one of our 5 campuses: Airdrie, Bridgeland, Central, North West and South Campuses. Each worship band includes drums, bass, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, piano/keyboards and vocalists.
We are seeking lead worshippers who’s lives are shaped by the Word, who depend on the Holy Spirit, and who value servanthood over stardom.
Our desire is to see singers in an environment where they can give their best to God.
Central Choir leads and presents music for the CSC congregation during some weekend services and for special presentations such as Christmas and Easter concerts. We rehearse Thursday evenings.
The rich and intricate sounds of an orchestra inspire praise to our God.

Centre Street Singers is an outreach choir performing primarily in nursing homes, retirement communities and hospitals. We rehearse Monday evenings and perform twice a month on Sunday afternoons.
Bridgeland Choir is a seasonal choir that will have short term practices toward a collaborative concert at Christmas time.
Communion volunteers facilitate the sacrament of communion for our congregations. This is a special opportunity to serve others with the attitude of Christ. Just as the bread and juice are Christ’s body and blood, so we are serving as his hands.
The Centre Street Music Academy (CSMA) offers private lessons taught by gifted musicians who are active in the CSC community. The Music Academy is designed to equip musicians to use music for the glory of God. Our aim is to prepare musicians for a lifetime of using their gifts, both for enrichment and for serving the church.
The Night of Worship Team (NOW Team) is a united service team specifically passionate to serve at NOW services. Areas to serve include prayer, camera and video operators, guest services, and production.
Centre Street Music Academy offers lessons in piano, voice, guitar, drums, violin, cello, music exploration for individuals with special needs, and music exploration for young beginners (ages 4-6). The lessons occur once a week, are usually 30 minutes long, and are one on one with the teacher. The lesson will take place either at the church, or in the teacher’s home studio. Recitals occur twice a year. One right after Christmas, and one at the end of the year. In the recitals, the students are able to showcase what they have been learning throughout the year. As an academy, we aim to place students, who are ready, in opportunities that will enable them to use their gifts on a worship team within CSC.
The CSMA Mission Statement is as follows: “The Centre Street Music Academy (CSMA) is open to all families of CSC, and surrounding areas, and offers private lessons, and recitals taught by gifted musicians who are active in the CSC community. The Music Academy is designed to equip musicians to use music for the glory of God. Our aim is to prepare musicians for a lifetime of using their gifts, both for enrichment and for serving the church.
