Music has a very important place in the life of the Saint John's. Not only does music play an important role in the worship life of the congregation, we see music as an important point of connection with our wider community. See the Concerts section of this website to learn more.
The Parish Choir is the principal choir of the parish and sings every Sunday between September and June at the Choral Service (11AM) and at other special services during the year. This SATB choir features voices that have sung in other presitgious choirs in Hamilton and elsewhere.
The choir is directed by Paul Grimwood, a graduate of the University of Western Ontario, and a very talented and experienced organist and choral director. Saint John's is very pleased to welcome Paul to the parish for the 2018-2019 season.
Members of the Children`s Choir are thrilled to be returning to in-person rehearsal on Thursday, Sept. 22! Children aged 5 years and older are invited to join this dynamic program. This ministry strives to enrich children's lives in three core areas: Spiritual formation and growth, musical skills and personal growth. The choir focuses on drawing people closer to God and Jesus through their music.It is free of charge and we meet on Thursdays from 6:30-7:15 p.m.
