Art and Soul
Nurturing the Congregation and the Arts Community
We recognize the soul-enhancing power of art of all kinds – music, theatre, visual arts, etc.
We have two goals:
The first goal is to nurture the congregation through the incorporation of artistic experiences into worship and other congregational events.
The second goal is to nurture the arts community in Kingston by providing space for artistic presentations (concerts, art shows, rehearsals, etc.).
SSUC has a long history of excellence in Church music. The Sydenham Street Choir, a vital part of our worship service, is led by our Music Director Glen Thompson. The choir sings an eclectic repertoire spanning five centuries of sacred music. It rehearses on Thursday evenings from 7:00 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.
