Create Music

Contact Martin Morley for more info.

Due to the Corona virus pandemic, our singing choirs are on hiatus.  We have a handbell ensemble which will resume once government guidelines for indoor meetings ease to allow it.  When we start singing and ringing again, this page will be joyfully updated!


Join Us In Music

Music is a powerful way to worship. It's also a great learning tool: we understand our faith better by singing about what we believe. And making music together bonds people in community. Each one of our musical groups is a "family within the church family" where you will find wonderful friends and a rich, joyful way to deepen your faith. You are welcome to participate in our music program whether or not you are a member of OSLC.
