Music

Music is a very important element of worship at our 10:30am Sunday service and for other special seasons throughout the church year. The spirit of this music ministry is guided by our gifted Music Director, Paula Stouffer Wilson.

Paula has always been surrounded by music. Her father is a professional musician who taught Paula her first piano lessons. Her musical background includes a diploma in piano performance from Mohawk College as well as part-time courses through York University and a Kodaly course through Wilfrid Laurier University. Paula also plays flute, has studied voice, recently started fiddle lessons and can even strum chords on a guitar. She has been a member of several choirs. In her own words, "My goal as a music educator has always been to foster knowledge and an appreciation for music. I believe that to teach anything to others, one must always keep learning."

St James' choir is comprised of a faithful group of singers who love music and take seriously their ministry as music leaders in our congregation. They are dedicated and committed volunteers, responsible for animating and encouraging participation through music in the liturgy and other celebrations. The choir is open to welcoming new voices throughout the year, offering special opportunities at Easter and Christmas to join for a season. Voices of all ages are welcome.

Many different music resources are consulted when choosing worship music throughout the church year - festive, traditional, contemplative or contemporary. On any given Sunday, a variety of piano, guitar, flute, violin, drum or organ can be heard throughout the service!
