Music and the arts are important parts of our life as a community. Our worship gatherings, performing artist concerts, art shows, classes and retreats all use the creative energy of music and art as a spiritual practice. In fact, innovation and creativity are highly valued here. We want to create a community that naturally attracts people who can express their own creativity or enjoy the creativity of others. Our community canvas is filled with a diverse, energetic population of interesting and interested people.
Our musical heritage is one of the world’s richest and most deeply spiritual. It’s an extremely diverse and multilayered art that brings together many traditions from England to South Africa, from the Americas to Asia. If it connects us to God, then we’ll use it.
A choral ensemble of professional standards that does much more than just sing. They are true musicians who bring out the spirit in all of us. Rehearsals are Sundays at 12 noon with a brief warm-up rehearsal each week at 9am before the liturgy.
The Gallery at St. Asaph’s features local artists throughout the year in exhibits that change monthly. Our gallery space provides an attractive venue for artists and a welcoming meeting place for the community. Art openings are welcoming and energized events connecting us further with the creativity we embrace.
