Music

Music is an important part of the life and worship at OUC. Music for adults, music for children, music for all of us! Our worship is musical, and functions to proclaim and support the Scriptures. We raise our voices in congregational song to praise God, to pray, to proclaim God's word and to tell the story of God's people. Anthems and hymns are carefully selected by the Ministers to support the scriptures and theme for each Sunday of the church year, ensuring a cohesive and inspiring Christian experience.

The choir explores and sings a broad range of music in many styles, unison and harmony. Any Sunday may include Gregorian Chant or Spirituals, Baroque or Taizé, Renaissance or contemporary music. The choir is spiritually and musically centered.  Rehearsal are energetic and fast paced, covering weekly hymns, responses, and 6-10 anthems at each practice. Vocal technique is discussed and applied to the music. During Advent and Lent the choir sometimes has extra mini-rehearsals after church. 

If you have the desire and ability to sing at your best in the ‘Courts of the Lord’, there is a home for you as a chorister or bell-ringer at Oakridge United Church. Please contact the church office at 604-324-7444.
