The music ministry and all it encompasses lies at the heart of worship and spirituality at Knox. Everyone participates by singing of hymns, both traditional and modern.
Our musical resources are diverse and inclusive, blending songs that make up our heritage with songs that will inspire future faith. We are blessed to have a number of wonderful instruments support the music ministry. Our pipe organ carries most of the congregational singing and the grand piano accompanies some hymns as well as the choir selections.
We also use drums, guitar and keyboard to liven our ministry of music.
Music at our Alternative Worship
During the 8:45 a.m. service, our music director and a small group of singers lead the music accompanied by piano and guitars. Music is varied and often selected from modern sources. Words to the hymns are always projected from a Power Point presentation.
Music at our Traditional Worship
Music during the 10:30 a.m. worship service is led by our music director and an adult choir, accompanied by the piano and/or organ. Hymns and choruses from our three Hymn Books (Voices United, More Voices and Spirit Anew) are used throughout the service. Words to the hymns are usually projected from a Power Point presentation. The choir offers a Ministry of music selection each week.
We are blessed to have a large and talented adult choir who sing a variety of three and four part anthems including meditative, traditional, contemporary, gospel etc. If you can carry a tune, or especially if you can harmonize, we would love to have you join us. Sight-reading is not necessary, but a sense of humour would.

SpiritSong (Children’s choir)
Our youth choir sings approximately once a month at one of the Sunday morning worship services. We sing a variety of songs from the Seasons of the Spirit music series and enjoy singing along with the senior choir on special occasions. Any child (grade 2 and up) who loves to sing is welcome to join us. Younger children who are able to read are also welcome.

Many families find comfort in music at funerals and memorial services. The choir is often called upon to lead the singing of hymns at funerals. We would welcome anyone interested in being a part of this special ministry to contact us and become a member of our Funeral Choir.
