Making music, making friends
The Sanctuary Band
The band is an eclectic and constantly changing group of musicians who add their talents to the worship service – guitars, flutes, drums, keyboards – enhancing worship music, or adding some extra music of their own. If you have musical gifts to offer, occasionally or regularly, please let us know.
Rehearsals as required.
The Handbell Choir
We love to make this uniquely beautiful music and to spend time together as friends, playing on occasion in church and especially lending our silvery sound to the Christmas season. All are welcome to give it a try — or come to watch and listen!
Tuesdays, 7-8 p.m., Music Room
This is a busy choir: extra church services, musicals, pageants, and many outreach activities in the community such as concerts and fundraisers. Most importantly, we help lead weekly worship. Many of our singers are heavily committed to work in the community and beyond, so all efforts are made to be flexible and welcoming. You won’t regret setting aside some time to come and sing (and laugh) among friends!
Thursdays, 7:30-9 p.m., Music Room
The ChoirWalkers are a new group that are meeting just while the choir is not rehearsing during the summer. We meet Thursdays at 7:30 in the parking lot and go for about an hour stroll around the neighbourhood. All welcome. No singing experience necessary!
July-August only, Thursdays, 7:30 p.m., Church Parking Lot
