More than 120 people gathered at Old St. Paul's Church in Woodstock for a Tribute Concert.  The rest of the year will see more concerts, tours of their historic church building, and a unique June 23 Founder's Day service.

This year is the 190th anniversary of Old St .Paul's Church in Woodstock and its parishioners have made lots of plans to mark it.

We will be holding concerts, offering tours of our historic building and, of course, having a unique service on our Founders' Day, June 23 that will include a Town Cryer, specially chosen music by our Music Director, Paul Tree, and some great guest speakers arranged by our (sadly) interim priest, Mark Kinghan.  We even anticipate congratulations from the King, himself!

Already on April 13, we had a large and excited crowd of over 120 people at our Tribute Concert featuring the music of Gordon Lightfoot, Shania Twain, The Rankin Family, Rita MacNeil and many others. The concert was followed by refreshments where we served better than half of our visitors homemade goodies and refreshments.

Thanks to Woodstock's Choralaires, The Thamesford Handbell Choir and local artist, Allison Lupton, we expect to welcome many more people in to admire this unique and beautiful church.
