Music

Hallelujah!
Sing to the LORD
a new song;
sing his praise
in the congregation
of the faithful!


Psalm 149

 

Adult Choir:

The adult choir sings at our 10:30 AM service, as well as for special services like Christmas Eve and Easter Vigil. The group is made up of volunteers. We sing music from the 15th century through to present day. Rehearsals are from 7:00 pm-9:00 pm on Thursdays.   If you are interested in joining the choir, please contact Ted Bickish at ted@releechurch.org. 

 

Junior Choir:

The Junior Choir is for children 7 years old and up. In rehearsals, the children work through the Royal School of Church Music’s Voice For Life program, in addition to the anthems and service music they learn. The Junior Choir joins regularly with the Adult Choir to sing at the 10:30 AM service. Rehearsals are from 3:45 pm-4:45 pm on Wednesdays and include snacks for the children.



Invitation to musicians:

In addition to our choirs, instrumentalists play an important role in worship at Grace. Instrumentalists augment our regular 10:30 AM service, special services, and our 5:00 PM Taizé Eucharist on the second Sunday of the month.  If you play an instrument, you are invited join us for one of these services.
