Featuring Rolf Bertsch and Special Guests from both the community and Congregation.
It’s a time to share our gifts and enjoy the special abilities of others. And it’s all for a good cause. The group, CanGo Grannies is an active, grassroots, non’profit local group who raise awareness and funds for the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation. St. Paul’s is pleased to host both this fundraising concert and their fabric and yarn sale.
Everyone is invited to come out for an evening of music making with Rolf Bertsch. We will sing both old favourites and lively new tunes and texts. Some of these will find their way into other events in the days following. Some will be used at other times throughout the year. All ages are welcome. You do not need to be a choir member to participate. Simple come, meet Rolf and have fun making music together. It would help us to know who plans to attend so we can prepare sufficient copies of music ahead of time.

Singing, teaching and
supporting congregations and community groups for almost forty years the Common
Cup Company was formed in Winnipeg in the early 1980s. Jim Uhrich, Ian
Macdonald, Bob Wallace and Gordon Light were United Church and Anglican clergy
in neighbouring parishes. In the passing of years, they have been scattered
across the land, and have added and lost members.
Although most are now
retired, and distance makes rehearsal time a rare and wondrous thing, they love
Common Cup originally
produced five cassette tapes of original music. They now boast six CDs, including
two collections of “Common Cup Live” songs from concerts over the years. Their
most recent studio CD, Earth Beneath Your Feet, was released in 2018.
Common Cup music appears in
recent Canadian Hymn Books: Voices United (United Church of Canada), Common
Praise (Anglican), The Book of Praise (Presbyterian) and More Voices (United
Church). Some songs are also published in collections in the USA, Australia,
New Zealand, Sweden, Norway and elsewhere. She Flies On! (written here
in Kamloops in the 1980s) has been translated into many languages
including French, Spanish, German and Swedish.
Their mission as a group is one of teaching, songwriting, singing and supporting congregations and community groups in their ministry. They have shared in national events from Vancouver Island to Newfoundland to the Yukon. In the Spring of 2018, they were blessed to do a six-concert tour in south west Australia. The group writes: “We care about personal faith, our common life in the Church, the well-being of the earth and its creatures, and peace and justice work.”
