Parishioners from St. Paul’s will be joined by those of St. John’s and Central Saanich United churches, although everyone is welcome to attend.

“Come for the uplifting worship and music – stay for fellowship time over refreshments afterwards,” says Rev. Allan Saunders of Central Saanich United Church.

The Hardings are popular “worship leaders” that are known to get congregations swinging. Bruce is the editor of the United Church’s “More Voices” and has written a number of pieces, such as Where Two or Three are Gathered, There is Room for All, This is the Day, Like A Healing Stream and Bread for the Journey.

“Anyone who plays an instrument is welcome to come,” says Saunders. “Musicians from all three participating congregations will be joining in with their instruments. I’m excited about the positive interactions that will take place both musically and inter-personally.”

St. Paul’s United Church is located at 2410 Malaview Ave, Sidney. The congregations of St. John’s and Central Saanich are co-hosting the event. Rehearsals for singers and musicians who would like to join Bruce and Cheryl, will take place on Saturday, Aug. 31 at 10:30 a.m. If you would like to join them for the rehearsal or have any questions about the event, email Rev. Allan Saunders at ministerscbbuc@shaw.ca.
