Jacquie Hawken, Music Coordinator

I am a retired Grade 8 teacher, with lots of volunteer experience as choir director, accompanist, and church musician. My husband, Bill, served in the Canadian Military for many years, so it was often my privilege and pleasure to work with both Catholic and Protestant Chaplains on various bases in Canada and overseas, to co-ordinate their music programs. "Making a joyful noise unto the Lord" is a favourite pastime of mine, but the joy is magnified when others join in. If you have a favourite hymn, or would like to work with us as part of the choir, or if you can bring a musical gift to the worship program at the church, please contact me on Thursday evenings at 7 during choir practise, on Sunday mornings, or through email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

The contributions of Mr. and Mrs. Edwards had made the building of the church possible and we have always been blessed with members and friends who have contributed to the maintenance and development of our house of God.

Pangborn Hall was added to the church building in the year 2000 and
