Then Sings My Soul

An Evening of Gospel Music & Congregational Singing


Old-time Gospel Singing for Everyone

For all life’s journeys, a song. For every stand, an anthem. For every mountaintop, a shout. For every valley, an earnest plea. For every heartache and every trial, a statement of steadfast faith. For every burden laid down, an expectation; in every storm, an expectant cry. For every tugging at the heartstrings, a knowing. Where words alone fail to express, a voice to lift toward the sky.

This is the heart of Christian assembly and the pinnacle of its expression. Singing in the old-time way. Plan to join us as we reclaim that place where you can express faith experienced in heartfelt song and worship. Where faithful pilgrims left behind by reimagined form can grasp anew their anchor. Where weary wanderers finally on the path toward home have hope of finding familiar the place of their arrival. Where the joy that bubbles up inside you has a place to overflow.

Then Sings My Soul is a well sprung up to offer drink for those in the Greater Toronto Area who still thirst for this water. We put on a series of singouts throughout the year, where whosoever will — no matter your church affiliation, no matter your faith status — can come for an evening of singing hymns, choruses and Gospel classics in the old-time way. Among the exciting features planned for each event are performances by guest groups, from-the-book hymn singing and a spontaneous chorus time, along with requests and a fun time in which the audience gets to sing in four parts.

Look for us in a theatre or community centre near you, and come expecting to make the rafters ring!

Come, sing your heart out

Let us make a joyful noise together
