The first joint worship service of Chalmers United Church and Sydenham Street United Church, with combined choirs, took place on January 7, 2018 at Chalmers United Church
Sydenham Street United Church has a long history of excellence in Church music. The SSUC Choir, a vital part of our worship service, sings an eclectic repertoire spanning five centuries of sacred music. It rehearses on Thursday evenings from 7:15 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and sings for 10:30 a.m. worship services each Sunday from September through late June. New members are always welcome.
The congregation has identified music as an important part of our worship; they wish to have a diversity of musical expressions from classical to more contemporary.
Our award-winning art/poetry/music presentation, The Easter Road, brightens the walls of our sanctuary.
Thursday, Month of April : 7:15 pm: Joint Choir Rehearsal will take place at Sydenham Street in the upper hall. Newcomers welcome.
Our Choir Director : David Melhorn-Boe, Minister of Music
