Psalm singing is the practice of singing through the 150 Psalms in the Bible during formal and informal times of worship at Anugraha RP church. In the New Testament, the Apostle Paul encourages the church to sing psalms to one another (Colossians 3:16 and Ephesians 5:19). By singing the Psalms, the word of Christ dwells in us richly. If you would like to experience the joy of singing Psalms to one another during corporate worship, please visit us!
