At The City Church, Pastor Martin MacDonald leads his congregation in positive, uplifting worship. A praise band with musical instruments such as drums and guitars accompany services, and many individuals take advantage of this experience to clap their hands or sing along to the music while worshipping. Pastor MacDonald encourages all people at his church to celebrate and communicate with God in the way that makes sense to them.
