HOUSE RULES

Due to the higher than expected number of participants at SingCon, we ask that you observe some basic house rules to make things run as smoothly as possible.

arrive on time (or even early) to the church services, practices, and workshops listed in the schedule.

Electronic devices? Be respectful of those leading the practices and workshops and turn off ringers and refrain from texting or talking. Avoid unnecessary use of devices during church services, practices, and workshops.

And, most important of all, please remember that the goal of our gathering is to sing together in praise and worship of God. In order to do this, we should lay aside all cares of life and come together, united in Christ, in a spirit of love and respect for one another (even if your neighbour is singing just a bit sharp or flat; we will take care of that together in the warm ups and the vocal technique workshops).
