We invite you to join us for a livestreamed choral evensong, an opportunity for quiet, reflection and prayer every Sunday evening.
The service will be livestreamed to our Facebook page beginning at 5:30 pm and will be available to watch below.
The order of service is available to download below if you wish to follow along.
Apologies from the camera person: We were trying out a third camera and apparently forgot to make sure there was an audio input. Alastair kindly recorded his sermon again, since the unintentional mime version was less than helpful. The video available below includes the new recording of the sermon.
Please note: Due to the Provincial Health Orders issued on November 19, 2020, there is no opportunity to attend the service in-person.
In our worship we use language which is poetic and filled with metaphor and wonder – realising that any language about God is limited. We use some ancient words which may seem odd, or may seem to refer to God as male, or in terms which elsewhere we might not choose to use. The poetry and the metaphor are there not to restrict or define our understanding of God, but to remind us that our words are never enough to talk about the Divine: instead we use the beauty of the words and music in our worship to help us glimpse just a little of the God beyond all words.
Officiants: The Venerable Alastair Singh-McCollum, Dr. John Thatamanil
Music: MacRae Choral and Sutton Organ Scholars of the Church of St. John the Divine
Director of Music: David Stratkauskas
