Community Contemplation Group -- January-June 2017
Do you desire more moments of calm in your busy life? Are you seeking ways to become more present? How about joining a group to explore a range of enjoyable contemplation methods?
Contemplation is like an embodied and creative form of meditation. A new Community Contemplation Group at Kingston Road United Church will use visual art, hand held labyrinths, movement, chocolate & art meditations and deep listening to music as modes of contemplation. Whatever you believe and wherever you are on your journey, you are welcome.
You can register for either the 2nd Wed morning (10:15-11:30) or 4th Monday night (7:15 – 8:30) of the month. It will run from Jan - June. The cost for this 6-session program is $115.00.

Weimar to Vaudeville with Tom Allen & Company - February 26th 1:30pm
A Tom Allen & Company concert is a musical sensation! Part musical, part drama, this production explores the period of the 20's and 30's with wit, stories, and music by gifted local performing artists!
From Weimar to Vaudeville is the story of two men, both sons of musical royalty. As America emerges from the Great Depression and Germany descends into darkness and chaos. Two musical princes, one rich, one poor, reach to each other across hardship and time as the world tilts again toward war.
Featuring music by Richard Strauss, Charlie Chaplin, Kurt Weill, Fletcher Henderson, Mozart, Brahms, and stunning original songs by the cast. Weimar to Vaudeville is Tom Allen’s vivid imagining of the 20s and 30s: dirty as ever and roaring loudly enough to be heard half-way ’round the world. Featuring Patricia O’Callaghan, Bryce Kulak, Kevin Fox, Lori Gemmell, Peter Gemmell and Tom Allen.
Tickets are $30 for adults, free for children under 12 years of age. Proceeds of this concert support Kingston Road United Church's Building Fund.
