  • Introducing two more of our fantastic musicians for Dec. 16, Caleb Ng and Jon Ng! Jon and Caleb have been playing the violin and banjo/guitar together for several years and have hosted a number of formal and informal music nights at Jacob's Well and Servants Vancouver. They draw from a variety of styles ranging from gospel to blues, country to old time fiddle music. Jon is a freelance musician, worship leader, piano/violin/theory teacher in Vancouver, and a member of Servants Vancouver. Caleb is a woodworker, an avid reader of theology, and a Washington Phillips fan.
  • Thank you for the invite but I'll be in America sorry.
  • Dec. 16's Carols for the Climate event is coming up fast, and as organizers, we're increasingly excited about it. But there's a few important ways we need your help: First, we're looking for people interested in bringing home-made Christmas goodies and tasty baked items to share. Maybe a plate of cookies, or an apple crisp, or anything else that you think others might enjoy! It would be great to have some options for people with dietary restrictions, too - think vegan, gluten-free, etc. Where possible, try making things from organic ingredients, and please bring a dish label with written ingredients on the evening. Second, we are trying to compile some gift basket prizes for a raffle. Do you know a local business that might be willing to offer a gift certificate? Have art, music, or handcrafts you'd be willing to donate? A skill you'd be willing to share? We'd love to make our raffle prizes creative, interesting, and representative of the incredible gifts within our community. Finally, for all you selfie-takers out there, we'll be setting up a Christmas-themed photo booth with props and climate justice messaging ("All I want for Christmas is a healthy planet"). For this to work, we're looking for a variety of Christmas props - elf hats, reindeer noses, mistletoe, Christmas sweaters, or anything else you can think of. Could you help out in any of these ways? If so, contact Lanie Fung at laniefung@gmail.com, and let her know what you can contribute. Let's make this a community effort, as we PullTogether to support Indigenous people standing up for the land and water we all share!
  • We're excited to welcome Jeff Hawker to the evening's line-up of musicians! Jeff is the pastor of worship and discipleship at Tenth Church Kitsilano, and a singer-songwriter who loves to write songs based on scripture. Influenced by rock, folk, and jazz, his Christmas album "Prince of Peace" contains six original songs that aim to help people enter into worship in the Christmas season.

A month and counting...
  • will there be vegan snacks?
