Season of Pentecost Worship

The Season of Pentecost (also known as, "normal time," continues the story of Jesus's mission of drawing people to him, nurturing and forming the Disciples in faith so that they can go out into the world and share his love with others, and clarity about what it means to be reconciled to, and to live into one's reconciliation with God, for the sake of other people. All are invited and welcome.

 

In person worship is at 10:00am each Sunday. This is a service of communion (Holy Eucharist).

Weekday Zoom Morning Prayer 9:30am

Morning Prayer is a daily practice that Anglicans drew from the Medieval monastic tradition. The goal for Morning Prayer is simply to be immersed in Scripture over time so that a person is formed by God's Word. In the West, we tend to assume that our own creative cognitive actions, are what provide learning and so transformation in our thinking and our actions. Yet the Christian tradition has a different perspective. It presumes that it is God who transforms us as we submit ourselves to him, reciting a set form of prayers that lead us through God's life with us.

 

You are invited to try out this practice Monday through Thursday Mornings from 9:00am to about 9:30am.

Tuesday Night Zoom Scripture Conversation

Have a question about Scripture? Wonder if there's something more going on than first meets the eye? Every Tuesday night we get together on zoom (no worries about weather or glorious Toronto traffic!) to discuss the Gospel passage that was read on Sunday. It's an opportunity to question, challenge, discuss our experiences of (or lack of) with such situations, and to support one another in learning and growing in the faith.

Come on out, 7:30-8:30pm every Tuesday

Sunday After Service Fellowship

Each Sunday, following the 10am service, everyone is invited to join in fellowship upstairs, with juice and cookies. This is certainly a time for socializing with one another, just like I'm sure Jesus's disciples did. However, this time is actually part of the ministry of every person who attends. It is the place where folks can share both the mundane and the more profound things going on in their lives. It's where people learn about the challenges, the concerns, the interests, the hopes and questions that others have, and that we often share. It's where the glue of 'being church together takes place.' Who is struggling? Who is sick? Who is healing? Who's family is coming to visit? Who needs prayer, or maybe a phone call? Who could you some direction or advice? Who could use challenge or comfort? What ministry ideas might be generated? This very informal social gathering time isn't just a 'social club gathering,' it is a core and essential part of ministry. Come on out and be a part of it!

Community Prayer Box

Over the next couple of months, we will be installing a prayer box on the lawn of our church property. The prayer box is intended for people who live in the surrounding community - many of whom might not necessarily attend our church (yet!!) but who use our green space and community garden or our parking lot to cut through to the Bayview subway station - to submit prayer requests to us. We will ensure we keep the prayer requests confidential. Our goal with the prayer box is to pray for the needs of our community members.

Outreach: FaithWorks Updates

Our parish outreach is directed through the Diocese of Toronto's FaithWorks Program. Out of what we donate as a parish, 15% is retained by the parish for local outreach projects.

FaithWorks is a charitable programme of the Anglican Diocese of Toronto.  We offer support to our Ministry Partners as they serve the needs of people who are Indigenous, homeless, hungry, at-risk women, children or youth, immigrants or refugees, or struggling with HIV/AIDS.  We help them build communities of compassion and hope.  As followers of Jesus, we offer new life.

FaithWorks allows us to share our blessings with others who are vulnerable and marginalized right here in our community and around the world.

FaithWorks feeds, shelters, nurtures and befriends over 20,000 people in our communities and around the world every year.

FaithWorks has provided more than $35 million to Anglican-affiliated ministries over the last 25 years.

Strawberry Social!

As the Province of Ontario, and Toronto in particular, have gradually removed COVID restrictions, we as a parish have gradually and carefully started to gather for a few in person events. Our first after service in person fellowship gathering was kicked off this past Sunday, June 26th, with a strawberry social, which seemed to bring out the crowds!

Weren't able to get here for it? No worries! Stay tuned for our Back to Church BBQ in September!
