Strata Vocal Ensemble invites you to come and meet the new conductor Laurel Forshaw, who will lead a selection of choral music that is truly “heavenly”.
Eclectic, moving, inspiring and fun…these are just some of the words that describe the repertoire for the first concert of the music season. Our theme, the joy of singing and music making, is developed with vocal selections by Schütz, Byrd, Gibbons, Batten, and Gjeilo, as well as the hauntingly beautiful Sing Me to Heaven by Daniel Gawthrop.
Featured in the program is Bach’s lush double choir motet, Komm Jesu Komm, honouring the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, and Britten’s compelling tribute to the patron saint of music, Hymn to Saint Cecilia.

Thank you to everyone who stuck around after worship on Oct. 22nd to see the presentation by Tye Farrow and the members of the New Roads Team. If you missed it, or if you’d like to refresh your memory, you can download the PowerPoint presentation as a pdf right here. All the changes being proposed for the church building will be contained in the current structure, and every one of them is a practical step to help make our building more useful to our ministries and more welcoming to our community.
If you have any questions, or would like to get more details on something, just flag down one of the members of the New Roads Team. They are: Matthew Foxall, David Platt, Connie Wardle, George Farrow, Warren Browne, Angus Kennedy, and Louise Fortier. If they don’t know the answer to your question, they’ll find out for you.
ClearView Church in Oakville will be hosting another 13 week session of GriefShare this fall starting on Monday, September 6th to November 29th from 7-9 p.m. The event is held once per week every Monday evening. GriefShare is a grief support group with strong Christian roots. The weekly sessions focus on expert presentations in video format followed by discussions led by a facilitator. A workbook with weekly exercises, to be followed up with discussions at the next session, intermeshes superbly with the video presentations thereby encouraging the participant to move forward “from mourning to joy” (GriefShare’s motto).
