Each member of Elation Ministries has found that their relationship with God has developed through music. It is a privilege for us now to have the opportunity to facilitate that growth in others. Our Music Ministry can take many forms, some of which include:
Leading a congregation in lively 'Prayer and Praise' or setting a contemplative tone with gentler and more reflective hymns/meditations.
Providing music for Masses, Retreats, Prayer meetings, Conferences, Festivals, Days of Prayer, Parish Missions/Outreach and many other events and ceremonies, and therefore providing an added richness to the events and Liturgies.
As a ministry, Elation are not limited to serving the Lord through music ministry alone. The group can also lead parish missions and retreats or days of reflection.
Workshops are aimed at people who want to use their gifts of music and song in service of the Church. We aim to share our experience of ministering to people through music and song and bring the focus of "music ministry" rather than "performance" to other musicians and singers.
- Talks on what is involved in music ministry
- Testimonies from Elation Ministries members
- Prayer and praise through music and song
- Practical guidelines for ministering through music
- Guidance on the use of a P.A. and other sound equipment

Day workshops typically run for 3-4 hours. Longer workshops (e.g. over 2 days) can be discussed and arranged according to the needs of a diocese/parish.
