High Street Hymns began as an outgrowth of the music ministry of Anglican College Ministry at the University of Virginia. Founded by singer-songwriter Alex Mejias, High Street Hymns has grown from a local songwriting project to a nationally known worship ministry and band. As a leader in the new hymns movement, the music of High Street Hymns can be heard in churches across the United States every Sunday morning. By combining ancient Christian hymnody and poems with the sounds of folk, rock and hip hop, High Street Hymns has helped to reclaim the long forgotten songs of the Church, and has brought them into incredibly diverse worship contexts.
High Street Hymns sees worship music not simply as an expression of faith, but also a means of spiritual formation and reconciliation. Each album tells the story of brokenness, sacrifice and redemption, and invites the listener into the Gospel narrative. Through diverse musical styles, High Street Hymns breaks down barriers and brings communities together in worship.
This October marks the release of High Street Hymns’ sixth album, Love Lives Again. Join us for a night of worship featuring the music from this new project.
