Season of Lent 

During the season of Lent, we travel with Jesus in his mission of manifesting God's healing and call to turn from the ways of the world to open to God's presence, and to allow oneself to be transformed into the likeness of Jesus the Son. It is an opportunity to examine our lives, reflect on our values and what is guiding our decision-making about how we use our gifts and resources and about how we engage in relationships with others. We are invited to bring these things before God in confession, offering ourselves to him to show us how He is working in these circumstances, and how he is calling us to respond. This calling and our willingness to open ourselves to God's way is the means of being sanctified, re-formed, and transformed into the person God made us to be so that we can reflect in our own lives, the way of Jesus Christ.

 

It's so easy to become either distracted or disheartened as we go about our daily lives But coming together for worship focuses us on God's presence with us. It calls us to attentiveness by grounding our lives in God's love and forgiveness of sin, from which can grow our own faith, hope, love and joy. It also challenges us to set aside the time to learn more about who God is so that when we are tempted (as we all are) by distractions, fears, anxieties, and the desire to control all things, we might instead learn to seek God's counsel, God's direction, and the way God might handle whatever situations we face. This Advent we spend time focused on the stories of those, like John the Baptist and Mary, who give themselves fully and completely, embodying Jesus's own being, in order that through them, he might be seen by billions of people across the last 2000 years.

 

All are welcome to join us for Sunday communion/Holy Eucharist service at 10am were we delve deeply into how God is at work in this world, transforming it and us!

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? Whose family is coming to visit? Who needs prayer, or maybe a phone call? Who could use 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

 

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.

Thanks, to Earle, Jimmy, and Carolyn for their extremely hard work of installing the box!

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.
