Music is an integral part of worship at Stainbeck. Our primary hymnal is Rejoice and Sing, but we also source music from Common Ground, Mission Praise and Singing the Faith. The organ at Stainbeck is an Ahlborn Praeludium I, inherited from Slack Lane Baptist Church, Oakworth, following its closure in 2018. Our piano is an upright Schiedmayer model from 1900.

Hymns in the Street

Hymns in the Street is a staple of Chapel Allerton Arts Festival, held annually during the first weekend of September.

In September 2021, in accordance with COVID measures, an outdoor variant called Hymns on the Green was held on the grounds of St Matthew’s Church in Chapel Allerton. In September 2019, Stainbeck was the host church for the event on Regent Street.
