What’s the style of worship at Killarney?
The best word to describe our worship style at Killarney is "blended.” While there are many traditional elements in our Sunday services, there are "contemporary" aspects too. One moment you are enjoying Bach and the next you are listening to our choir sing an upbeat gospel number. Our congregation loves to sing hymns of a variety of styles and periods from soaring traditional hymns accompanied by the organ, to quiet, meditative numbers, to upbeat hymns from a variety of world cultures. We enjoy Voices United - the current hymn book of The United Church of Canada. We are blessed with a number of gifted instrumentalists in the congregation who contribute music for services and other events. We strive to be inclusive in the language and imagery of our worship, drawing on the deep wells of Christian tradition while also striving to expand our spiritual horizons. As a congregation that is trying to be inclusive of all ages and people, on any given Sunday you can see members from our youngest to our oldest involved in various ways in worship.
