On the Hill Events – Summer 2019

We are excited to present our “On the Hill” series for summer 2019! We’ll be holding a variety of events on our outside hill throughout the summer, culminating with our Community BBQ in September. We’ll have Music Nights on the Hill, a children’s entertainment performance, and a Movie Night. Check out all of these below!

In the case of rain, all events will move inside to the parish hall. 

Music Nights on the Hill

All performances are on Thursday evenings from 7-8pm.

All of them are free, kids are welcome, and it’s bring your own picnic blanket, dinner, and/or snacks.

Really, what better way is there to spend a summer evening than outside under trees and sky, but still in the heart of the city? #musiconthehill

Estyr & Brandon Davis

Thursday, June 20 @ 7pm

This duo merges indie-folk and jazz influences to take listeners on a soulful, toe-tapping sound journey. Estyr’s heartfelt lyrics and acoustic guitar interact with playful upright bass lines by Davis to create a delightful musical friendship. With a quiver full of original songs, join Estyr and Brandon as they explore the soft and emotive landscape between folk ballads and jazz improvisation.

Ben Reines

Thursday, July 4 @ 7pm

Benjamin Reines is a Canadian singer-songwriter currently based out of Bowmanville, Ontario. Drawing heavily from influences like Tom Waits, Bob Dylan and Neil Young, Reines’ music is often described as dark and moody. Ben got his start playing the various open mic night’s across the Durham Region’s music scene in the late 2000’s, eventually releasing his debut album, “Brother, Take my Gold, Sister, Take my Bones” in 2014. Currently, Ben Reines and frequent collaborator, Patrick Dorie, are playing shows together throughout Southern Ontario backed up by “The Blood Machine Band”.

Blending folk, roots, and country sensibilities, Danielle Knibbe’s songs win, and then all too often, break your heart. There’s an intimacy and familiarity to her music; her stories may not be about you, but you’ll think they are.
