For some people, Depeche Mode is a religious experience–metaphorically, of course. Now, though, an Anglican church in Toronto is looking to turn DM into a eucharist.
Church of the Redeemer, which is located on the corner of Bloor and Avenue Road in downtown Toronto, has selected Depeche Mode to frame a religious message. Instead of traditional hymns, they will use Martin Gore compositions–all with lyrics unchanged.
Church of the Redeemer isn’t new at what they called “rock eucharists.” Last year, they did something similar with David Bowie.
If you’re interested, the DM service will take place at 7pm on Sunday, March 6. There’s no charge–hey, it’s a church service–and Father Jeff Stone wants everyone to know that all are welcome.
