Music is integral to the worship in all three of the churches in the Regional Ministry of Hope.
St. John’s Brussels’ music and small all-female choir is under the direction of Michelle Blake. These women love to “make a joyful noise unto the Lord” and are under the guidance of Michelle Blake. The choir leads the congregation in music on Sundays and participates in the annual Brussels Ministerial Spring Concert in May and Christmas Concert in December.
The congregation of Trinity Blyth appreciate singing a different styles of religious music, to the dulcet, beautiful tone of their grand piano, wonderfully played by Lynda McGregor. Lynda also has her finger on the pulse of the artistic musical community in Blyth and area, and musical guests are a regular feature of their worship. The touch Lynda has on the piano is especially noted in the monthly “Songs & Stillness” services, the fourth Sunday evening of each month, September through June at 7 p.m.
St. Paul’s-Trinity, Wingham’s Director of Music and Choristers, William K. Seymour leads a 12 voice mixed choir, of some local acclaim, who specialize in a capella singing. The choir regularly offers anthems and special musical offerings to the Sunday worship, in a broad range of musical genres. St. Paul’s has a Yamaha organ and a new Roger’s organ, both skillfully and delightfully played by Bill, enhancing the worship experience for all. The choir also participates in the annual Wingham Choral Concert in December and other concerts from time to time.
