Beginning the show right in the middle of the sold out audience, the band performed 'Wake Up' without amplification to give the show a unique start.
Moving to the main stage, the group then played a host of new songs including forthcoming single 'Keep The Car Running', 'Black Wave/ Bad Vibrations', 'Intervention', 'Building Downtown' and former b-side turned 'Neon Bible' album track 'No Cars Go'.
However it was during first album anthem 'Rebellion/ Lies' that Arcade Fire left their biggest impression, with frontman Win Butler diving into the crowd to deliver his vocals stood atop a chair, halfway down the church's aisle.
The singer's venture seemed to be inspired by the reverential effect the venue had on the crowd - which included Coldplay's Chris Martin - with Butler joking they were "acting like they were in a church".
He later compared the contrast between an applause and mass-like silence to a Japanese audience.
"You're very polite, your parents would be very proud," he explained, before asking had "anyone one come with their parents?"
Following several raised hands he added: "Wow, your parents are cooler than mine!"
Concluding the set with 'Neighbourhood #2 (Laika)' from debut album 'Funeral'
