Bruce and a talented team of musicians are delighted to be leading music for the AGM of BC Conference of The United Church of Canada in Penticton, BC, this year! Lots of communal singing to support the meeting, plus leadership and special music from a massed choir for the Celebration of Ministry service on June 3. See you there!
