Saint James United church is currently abiding by the COVID 19 policies of the United Church, the Provincial and the Federal Government for music in the church. We are very proud to have an active choir, all-ages handbell choir, and the Sunshine singers (youth choir). The senior choir normally rehearses every Wednesday at 7:15pm (Sept.-June) and presents its annual Christmas Cantata the third Sunday in Advent. New singers are always welcome. The choir also provides music for services at Carleton Manor. Both the handbells and Sunshine singers meet periodically after church to prepare special music. The Sunshine Singers are ages 3-10 and the handbell choir welcomes anyone regardless of age or experience. Our church believes that music is an important part of worship and strongly supports the music programs.
If you would like to be involved with music-making at Saint James, we’d love to hear from you. We also welcome instrumentalists or vocalists who like to perform occasionally but can’t commit to a weekly rehearsal. Please call Mary Wheelan at the church office, if you have any questions.
