Worship Circle Working Group
The Worship Circle is one of the three main focus areas for congregational activity. We strive to provide meaningful Ministry for all our congregation through Sunday worship. Volunteers help work with supply Ministers to provide weekly services, provide beautiful musical accompaniment, plan overarching worship themes to enrich our lives and ensure access to worship via online services on our YouTube channel
Juliet Milsome - Interim Music Director
The Chalmers Choir is a family within the congregational family. We care for each other and the wider community. Singing together helps to broaden and deepen our relationships with all Creation. Making music affirms and strengthens our connections as the Body of Christ and the Whole People of God. We welcome all who love to sing and to learn.
We strive to be expansive in our ministries, in the types and styles of music we offer, in respecting the gifts of all who feel called to share, and in the contexts where we make music. The choir has an integral part to play in Sunday morning liturgies, by leading in congregational singing and, on occasion by offering an anthem that reflects the theme of the service.
In addition, singers come together periodically to visit people identified by our pastoral care team who would appreciate the comfort and healing gift of music. Anyone can be part of this pastoral music ministry by letting Juliet or another choir member know of your interest in being contacted when such opportunities arise.
We look forward to a time when choir participation and the music program can increase in numbers, after Covid concerns are no longer an issue.
Chalmers Flute Choir
The Chalmers Flute Choir, led by Bill Egnatoff, prepares a variety of music for our worship services and outreach. We rehearse most Saturdays 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. at Chalmers from September through May (no rehearsals October 8-29, 2016). We play in the Sunday morning worship about once a month, at a mid-February event called “Love Songs and Delectables,” and on several occasions at residences for senior citizens. We use all the flutes from piccolo to bass. Sometimes one or more of our members plays with the adult choir. Our members vary widely in skill level. We share the fun and fellowship of playing in a group of just flutes. Occasionally we invite players of other instruments to join us. New members are welcome. (Currently on hold due to the Covid Pandemic)
