Let the Whole World Sing!
It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces and also some new ones on December 17th attending our Choir and Friends presentation of “Let the Whole World Sing”.  WE did it! Our community came together to produce a memorable ‘living Christmas story’ that brightened the hearts of those that were there.  It was definitely a joyous occasion.  This was our first ‘Live and in-person’ Cantata here at Applewood since 2019. Thank you to everyone who attended and  a special thanks to all who were involved in creating a magical morning.

The Applewood United Church Choir is an enthusiastic, caring group that enjoys singing together and participating in worship.  We share the familiarity and beauty of favourite anthems and hymns and face the challenges of new music and ways of worship together.
Every Thursday night the choir meets at the church to sing from 7:00pm – 8:30pm.
All are welcome – join us on a Thursday night or contact Christina at Christina@applewoodunited.ca in advance if you wish with any questions.

Watch our choir videos!

    

   

   

   

   

Do you remember when Applewood United Church produced the musical “Bethlehem” in the late-90’s?  The musical was written by Minister Walter Murray and Musical Director Daniel Rubinoff at that time.  In December 2020, Daniel Rubinoff contacted me about singing a song entitled “Child” that he originally composed as a piece used in the musical “Bethlehem”.  The timing just didn’t work out in 2020 for the piece, but the stars aligned this year in 2021 and we were able to collaborate and bring Daniels music with Walters words to life with vocals by Christina.  Listen to the collaboration of CHILD by clicking on the link below.

 

Child of the angels, Child in the night
Life’s given blessing, Joy’s own delight
Born from the one love, Deep in my soul
Born from my spirit, Making me whole

Life’s little beauty, Holding my heart
My sweet forever, Time’s gentle start
Born from the mystery, Moment in time
Born out of passion, Life so sublime

Child of the angels, Child in the night
Life’s given blessing, Joy’s own delight
Born from the one love, Deep in my soul
Born from the mystery, Making me whole
