Entersect, "where life and art meet," is an extension of the music and worship ministry of The Church of St. John the Divine, providing opportunities for all to encounter the Divine through the transformative power of the arts.
Through excellence in concert presentations, teaching, and partner programs with other organizations, our work embraces the audacious strategies of St. John the Divine: equipping people for lives of unceasing prayer and vibrant worship, developing exceptional ministries that change lives for God in Christ, and becoming a world-class teaching center.
Entersect's inaugural season features a Christmas Gala with the SJD Chorale, Houston Boychoir, and chamber orchestra. In February, we host a worship weekend, with special guests the Robbie Seay Band, the Rt. Rev. Gregory Brewer, and Justin Brooks . Regularly scheduled performances by ROCO, our professional chamber orchestra in residence, occur throughout the season. Expanded worship offerings of sung prayer are offered throughout the season, both in the ancient Anglican tradition of sung evening prayer (evensong) and the modern Ecumenical tradition of Taizé. Through these key events, Entersect reaches across a broad spectrum of the arts with multi-generational audiences.
The arts are God's gift to us, and it is through their unique power that we are able to glimpse the Divine. The psalmist says it best: "O Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness..." (Psalm 96:9a).
