Music helps to lift the souls of worshippers and provides a beautiful way for people to voice their love and praise of God.
Our congregation enjoys all styles of music in worship. Each week we experience both traditional and contemporary forms of music. Our choirs and special music help this to happen, through anthems and leading the congregational singing. All our music groups welcome newcomers.
The Chancel Choir is involved in the morning worship services and special music services. Rehearsals are Thursday at 7:45 p.m (by Zoom). Come on out for evenings of fun, fellowship, and perhaps a bit of music. We also welcome soloists and guest musicians. We are very blessed to be part of the rich musical community of Kitchener-Waterloo.
We have a Praise band that participates regularly in worship. They meet most Tuesday evenings at 7:15 p.m. in the sanctuary to practice.
In 1987, we began to bless our worship and music with the Music Scholars’ Program. The gift of having leadership and inspiration from talented and studious music scholars is deeply appreciated by all. So much so that over the years this program has been well supported by the special gifts of many of our worshippers. We are blessed with five scholars who are an integral part of our music and worship.
Our Choir and the Praise Band have benefited greatly by sharing the talent and encouragement of each scholar. We are very fortunate that our music director Mary – Catherine Pazzano is so well connected to the music scene in Kitchener-Waterloo that she is always able to find the perfect scholar to fit our needs. We provide modest honorariums to each scholar. Gifts to support this ministry are welcome at any time.
