IMG_2100The Commons will be leading worship at the TrueCity Prayer Room on Saturday, March 11th from Noon until 2pm, as part of 28 Hours of Continuous Worship provided by 14 different churches. The Commons will be intentionally trying to enter a worship space that allows for improvisation and repetition backed by a mix of electronic and acoustic instruments. You don’t need to come for the full 2 hours, feel free to drop by any time to sing with us (or any of the other churches) or don’t sing at all just come and explore the creative prayer space that is open to you.

Together we raised $2720 for MCC

IMG_2439On May 2nd, 2015 all three Mennonite Churches in Hamilton partnered to put on a fundraiser called “A Taste of Southeast Asia.” Hamilton Mennonite Church hosted the event, The Commons provided the music with their band The Common Collective, and Grace New Life Mennonite Church cooked up a storm and provided our amazing feast. Together we raised $2, 720.00 for MCC Refugee support programs. It was IMG_2454great having all three Mennonite Churches in Hamilton partner on this. A big Thank You to everyone who volunteered, you were amazing!

Thank you to everyone who attended, we couldn’t have raised this money without you. Make sure to tell all your friends how great a time you had, so that they know what they missed out on. With all your “word of mouth” promotion and great reviews I think we could easily raise $4000 next time.
