Music Ministry at Christ Church
With the Covid-19 protocols in place, our music teams pre-record while the building is closed for public worship. In time, we will see this change but in the mean time, we are grateful for the gift of music these people bring to us on a weekly basis.
Music is a vital part of our worship together at Christ Church, and we express ourselves in several different ways. On a typical Sunday, a service will be held using contemporary praise and worship music,
followed by one which emphasizes more traditional forms.
Christ Church Choir
Under the leadership of Ron Greidanus, our Choir joins us in worship at our 10:45 Traditional Service. The Choir rehearses on Thursday evening and is a wonderful gift of ministry at Christ Church.
Ron comes to us with a proven ministry skills exercised over decades in the Anglican Church. He has been the Director of Music at a number of parishes, most recently at St. George’s since 2001. Ron has performed as a recitalist, chamber musician and soloist with numerous orchestras including the Vancouver Philharmonic, The Rochester Philharmonic, the Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber Orchestra and the Brampton Symphony Orchestra. He is the conductor of the Georgetown Bach Chorale of which many Christ Church members are season subscribers. Ron is well known within our local musical community and has a reputation as a helpful vocal coach, a strong musician and a team and community builder. Ron loves to praise God in music and encourage, support and lead God’s people in doing the same. God has been good to us in leading Ron here at this point in time.
The Worship Collective
What's in a song?
Welcome to worship, up close and personal. “What’s in a Song?” explores individual songs of worship and praise and offers a reflection that will hopefully add another level to your personal devotion and meditation on your faith.
Perhaps you enjoy worship music as background noise, or you long to explore and feast on it. Regardless of your interest in music, examination of the lyrics is a worthwhile activity, offering thoughts on how these song meanings might relate to us in 21 century culture.
It is the hope that through these commentaries, our corporate worship will be enriched as the songs come to life in deeper context. Consider each song and see where it takes you. If you would like to hear the songs, you can usually find some version of it on YouTube.
And when we sing these songs on any given Sunday, join us, sing loud and sing strong. We are all in this together.
If You’re Interested…
The Worship Collective is looking for individuals who sing, play instruments (including bass and keyboards) or who have talents with sound production (or are willing to learn about our sound system).
Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings at 7 pm
