Church on Tap: Pride Celebration!

Each year we pull out all the stops to celebrate Pride, and this year is no different! We are collaborating with Voices Canada to bring together a group of panelists (instead of the traditional homily) to discuss pride, joy, resilience, and the way forward.

On top of that, Rev. Jess Dowling will preside at the Eucharist and Deb Whalen-Blaize will lead us in song with vocals and guitar.

And, not least of all, after the service we will have a time of fellowship (and a party!) with beer, snacks, and DRAG QUEEN performances!! You won’t want to miss it!!

So, please join us at 7pm on Friday, June 21st for a wonderful, worshipful, celebratory time! As LGBTQ+ folk and allies, let us flourish together as children of God!

The Story behind our

Tracking Organ

Our magnificent three manual, tracker-action organ was installed in the chancel of the church in the spring of 1982 and dedicated to the Glory of God and in memory of those who died in the First World War and the Second World War.

The organ, built by the Karl Wilhelm Company of Mont St. Hilaire, Quebec, has a classical continental design. The case is made of white oak and the pipe shades are of carved butternut. Voiced in the classic French style, its 36 stops and 50 ranks are capable of interpreting a wide variety of organ literature.

Installation required considerable changes to the chancel including moving the altar forward and arranging choir seating to either side. These renovations prompted the design and production of our award-winning Benedicite Kneelers, done in needlepoint by a dedicated group of church members.
