Worship Band

Worship comes in many shapes and sizes. In addition to our traditional worship styles which musically include choir, orchestra, and handbells, First Church offers a contemporary worship led by our worship band.

Crossroads Worship Band

The Crossroads Worship Band, led by Brian Batch, has multiple voices and instruments. With a full sound, it is both upbeat and contemplative. At any given Crossroads worship service, you will join in with contemporary worship songs, secular songs that speak spiritual truths, and original songs written by band members. The band is normally uses multiple voices, piano, acoustic and electric guitar, bass, violin, and drums.  On occasion, we welcome additional instruments and musicians as well. Because we are so close to Austin’s music scene, we count ourselves wildly blessed by both the musical talent and the spiritual leadership in our worship bands.
