The church is not called to dance to the tune of the world. If we do, we won’t win. No matter what dance we choose, fault will be found. We’ll either be too somber or too silly, too radical or too conservative, too “this” or too “that”. Our dance is to Christ and Christ alone. The Scriptures are our music and the Gospel is our tune. The Lordship of Christ is our symphony and discipleship our musical score. – The Rev. Marc Robertson

M.A.C.N.A. (Musicians of the Anglican Church in North America) is an organization supporting both priests and church musicians together in their work of ministry through music and worship. As the Provincial Music Task Force continues its work of providing music resources for the Province, MACNA will be an important facet of our planning together.

The vision for the organization is to develop effective ways for church musicians and priests to communicate with another, to encourage one another, and to learn from one another including the planning of future Music and Worship conferences at both the Diocesan and Provincial level. We also hope to encourage and provide more connectivity between musicians and leaders of worship serving as both encouragers and equippers.

If you would be interested in up-coming events or have ideas for an event, or questions, just let us know at macna@anglicanchurch.net. Richard Bierman and Allison Keyport (Music Task Force MACNA leadership.)


Organized by Richard Bierman and Allison Keeport (MACNA point persons serving on the ACNA Music Task Force) the very first meeting of MACNA took place at the SING! 2022 Conference this September Nashville. Archbishop Foley Beach spoke to the group of 26 ACNA church musicians and priests, provided encouraging words about the importance of our leadership, held a Q & A time, and prayed over us and our ministry together.
