There will be a 45 minute recital beginning at 3 pm followed by a 15 minute break and then Evensong sung by the parish choir. Evensong will feature a new set of canticles by local composer and retired Conrad Grebel College professor Leonard Enns.
David Hall will again be hosting an opportunity for kids and kids at heart to experience the OrgelkidsCAN organ kit on Family Day, Febuary 17 at Blessed Sacrament Church. Details to follow.

Morning Keynote: All Together Now: The Theology, History and Theory of Intergenerational Worship
Intergenerational worship is not a new thing, in fact it is a very, very old thing. Over time though we’ve let go of the intergenerational aspects of our worship and now find ourselves wondering what we might have lost and how we might claim it back again. Together we will hear the stories that reveal why intergenerational worship should be at the forefront of our worship planning.
Afternoon Keynote: All God’s Creatures Got a Place in the Choir: Intergenerational Worship is for Everyone
Together we will consider what really makes intergenerational worship a delight for all ages. We’ll hear stories of intergenerational worship that is as traditional as it can be, and as non-traditional as you could possibly imagine – all of which achieve their goal of worship that is meaningful for all ages. We’ll specifically look at the music, liturgy, and preaching aspects of intergenerational worship and unpack how we can make them more appropriate for all generations. We will also how a churches can move practically toward a more intergenerational ministry through the preparation of the congregation, the parents and the children for this new and yet very old way of worshipping all together.
