Andy Jefferson is one of Christ Church’s team of worship leaders, leading a couple of evening services each month and occasionally at the Spa Church where he and his wife, Moira, are part of the leadership team. He has 20 years experience of leading worship ranging from small intimate groups, through services, school assemblies and conferences to larger gatherings both in the UK and Europe. One of Andy’s passions has been to encourage younger musicians and singers to develop their God-given skills and talents and progress to become worship leaders themselves. He is always keen to try out new songs where they are appropriate and his current influences are Stuart Townend, Chris Tomlin and Jesus Culture. Part of Andy’s philosophy of leading worship in Christ Church is that it is essential that the worship leader is seen as part of the worshipping congregation. He may be the guy at the front with the guitar who (sometimes) knows what’s going to happen next but is essentially just one part of the worshipping community. Andy has been blessed over the years by the support of a core team of musicians who have grown together and provide him with invaluable support and encouragement.
