Us today

As Christian worship keeps pace with society, so too does Christian worship music. A whole new genre of Christian Contemporary Worship Music, sometimes referred to a Christian Rock has developed with many churches now offering services that incorporate a live band playing contemporary music  for the congregation.

Praise in the Park too has evolved with CTfC’s own band Chesham Street Lights  whose members are drawn from within the family of churches that together are Churches Together for Chesham

Who are Churches Together for Chesham?

Churches Together for Chesham (CTfC) is a hub for Christians in Chesham to connect with others of a like mind
