Musical Groups

Do you enjoy music?  Music is an integral part of our Sunday services.  Organ preludes and postludes and choral anthems provide opportunities for reflection, meditation and prayer.  We have a number of talented musicians in our congregation and are always looking for more choristers and instrumentalists to lend their God-given talents.  For those who have little experience singing or who cannot use music, worry not for you are still welcome to come and learn how to raise your voice in song!  For more info email musicdirector@stjohnslondon.ca
