Hans Christian Andersen once wrote the famous line, “Where words fail, music speaks.” Knox Presbyterian Church in Weyburn, Saskatchewan, is bringing their community together through an exciting new music ministry called PALM: peace, art, love and music.
Under the PALM banner, Knox Weyburn (grant recipient of the Avondbloem Experimental Fund) hosts a variety of music and art-related events for all ages. More than 40 people from the community recently attended Knox Weyburn’s Youth Showcase Night, which featured several local youth musicians and included an open-mic segment. Knox has also arranged for local bands, musicians and even puppet show performers to perform at the church’s hot meal gathering, which provides food and entertainment to those living on the margins in their community.
PALM jam/art nights are currently held every third Tuesday at 7 p.m. and all are welcome.
