Many in the congregation share a love of jazz, especially our minister and our director of music. Vancouver is blessed with a rich pool of amazing talent in its jazz musicians, complemented by musicians on tour coming through town. Churches are looking to offer an alternative time and form of worship in which people can be nourished by the grace of Jesus Christ to flourish. And Brentwood has a warm ambiance and amazing acoustics for this kind of music. So, we started to do Jazz Evensongs on Wednesday evenings at 8:00PM in 2013.

The evening is mostly music – 7 pieces in all. There are prayers inspired by the Iona Community tradition of Trinitarian thinking about the blessings of God that flow to us moment by moment in the most ordinary of things.

We invite you to put some money into the ‘Thanks Bucket’ (it’s a tradition we borrowed from New Orleans street bands and jazz clubs) that is passed around during the service in support of the musicians.

Below is a list of the artists coming in the next few months.
