Inside Koinonia Church, Bloomingdale, Ontario
NEW THIS YEAR!!! A Woodstock show – Sunday December 13th at 4pm
Two years ago, upon the suggestion of a close friend, our family headed out to Bloomingdale to this free concert expecting a nice family evening. What we didn’t expect was to be blown away by the level of talent and professionalism of the musicians, the choirs, singers and the production as a whole. It was like something you would pay to see at the Centre in the Square – I kid you not – it is that good. The show far exceeded all of our expectations and we are now making it an annual tradition.
I can’t say enough good things about this show and most importantly, it filled my heart with joy and we all left the show feeling inspired and reminded of the real reason for the season and totally in the Christmas mood. It was fun, inspiring, and extremely entertaining. While it was held in a church and some of the songs were spiritual, this was not a religious show and I strongly encourage ANYONE to go no matter what your faith or beliefs. You will never feel uncomfortable and the congregation was so welcoming and kind — a really lovely experience. Our children, who were only 3, 5 and 10 at the time were captivated and sat quietly through the entire show. Since going, we have now taken other families along and every one of them falls in love with this concert and makes it a new tradition. This year, there will be 6 families and all our kids taking in the show for about 30 people!
On their website, the church describes the show ’an annual celebration of the best of Christmas music -a classy, nostalgic concert full of the joy of Christmas! With dance, live band & orchestra and a powerful choir, you’ll hear some of your favourite songs of the season from heart-touching ballads to swinging classics.’ Click on the video below to see a little commercial..
