Church of the Apostles’ Helper Bees, which hosts free concert series
From Thursday the event will take place in the gardens of the Church of the Apostles on Glasgow Street
The Gardens of the Apostle Church are already buzzing with activity and are hosting a new event this summer.
The Helper Bees of the Church of the Apostles have announced a free four week concert series in the church gardens at 86 Glasgow St N. Each show takes place on Thursday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m
From July 21, the Church of the Helper Bees of the Apostles invites four musicians and music duos to perform; Brenda Lewis and Gayle Ackroyd, CJ Cooper, David Sait and Jill Francis and Lexi Pham. The concert series ends on August 11th.
Concert organizer Kate Nixon said the concert would be free and wheelchair accessible. Pre-registration is not required.
“All that is needed is a lawn chair or a blanket to get comfortable,” Nixon said in a press release. “Everyone is welcome.”
“The church currently has food trucks on Thursday nights and many people use the gardens to eat and relax. We thought the concerts would be a welcome addition for these people and for the neighborhood,” Helper Bees coordinator John Dennis said in the publication.
Nixon adds that the church sees itself as part of the local community and neighbors do not have to attend services to be part of the church community.
“The church offers many different programs including a breakfast club for GCVI, Living Better on Less, and they prepare meals for Your Downtown Guelph Friends twice a week.”
