Open to all, the Chalice Choir is our main adult choir. No audition, no need to read music. The choir provides an enjoyable opportunity to expand your musical knowledge with a supportive group. Choir members rehearse Thursday evenings in the Sanctuary from 7:30 to 9:30 pm and sing two Sunday mornings a month (September to June), meeting at 9:45 am to warm up. Often December and May can be busier months with seasonal concerts.
The Men’s Choir (open to anyone who identifies as male) is for any adult wishing to sing music specially selected for male voices. No audition, no need to read music. The choir meets twice a month on Thursdays from 6:30 to 7:30 pm, before the Chalice Choir rehearsal.
THE JAMMERS (JOYFUL ASSOCIATION OF MUSIC MAKERS)
A small group (10 to 12 people) who love to sing and share their music with seniors living in extended care/nursing facilities. The group performs the last Friday of each month, September to June. It has an 18-year tradition of singing folk songs, golden oldies and action songs. No audition, no need to read music. Practice once a month at the church. New singers are always welcome.

The first sound everyone on Earth heard was the sound of our mother’s heartbeat. Our relationship with rhythm began in the womb. As human beings, we are intrinsically rhythmic, and this rhythm is a potent source of well-being. The Drumming Circle meets every second Sunday, 12:30 – 2:00, in the Sunflower Room of the Children’s Wing. Everyone is welcome to join in; drop in and check us out! For more information or to add your name to the emailing list, contact Dar Levy at email@example.com

For Everyone! Sunday Services
As a congregation we love to sing! Join our regular Sunday worship where we lift our voices in the community of song. We’re truly blessed with rich and varied opportunities to participate in the wonderful gift of music.
Although our congregation features a variety of musical performances, music within the context of worship is not about performance. Rather, music allows people to express their innermost yearnings, their joy and sorrow, their creative energy and spirit.
