Our annual outdoor service!
As usual we will begin the week in praise of God, but this Sunday we will gather on the church lawn in the shade of the trees at the corner of Princess and Clergy. There will be chairs available, but bring your own comfy lawn chair if you wish. And after the service, all are invited to stay for a festive BBQ! And the Skeleton Park Arts Festival continues through the afternoon.
Instead of being within the sanctuary, we will be looking at the outside limestone for a change … and our theme for worship this year will focus upon ‘rock’. We will ponder the psalmist’s declaration of ‘God my rock’, the provision of water brought by God from rock for the people wandering in the wilderness, and the teaching of Jesus about building lives upon solid rock. And of course we will be singing some great hymns, including ‘How great thou art’, ‘Rock of Ages’, ‘Will your anchor hold’ and ‘For all the saints’ – accompanied by John Hall with a piano wheeled out to the sidewalk and the choir on the steps.
A warm welcome in the name of Jesus Christ and a special welcome to all visitors and friends. We acknowledge that we meet on traditional Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee territory. There is free parking on the streets around (please note that the time-of-day restrictions on Clergy Street north of Queen are not in effect on Sundays) and in the surface civic lot just behind the church off Queen Street.
Have a look at the Order of Service and bulletin below, and consider each hymn and prayer and announcement a personal invitation to join us in Christian worship, community and service. If you have any questions about forthcoming events and opportunities, please call the church office Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m. – noon, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
