Each year, Christians around the world join in January prayers for unity. This year the theme has been selected by the Churches of Germany, 500 years after the Reformation which brought both renewal and division to the Church of Christ. The focus is not on our churches, but upon the Christ. We can read some reflections of their own experience at https://www.councilofchurches.ca/our-faith/week-of-prayer-for-christian-unity/ecumenism-in-germany/ Other resources are available, including daily studies for ten days of personal reflection https://www.councilofchurches.ca/our-faith/week-of-prayer-for-christian-unity/eight-days-biblical-reflections/
Here at St. Andrew’s, we are continuing a recent tradition of inviting a member of another branch of the Church of Christ to join us and lead us in worship this last Sunday of January. This year we welcome Sister Pauline Lally of the Sisters of Providence. Sister Lally will develop the theme of the Apostle Paul, Reconciliation – The Love of Christ Compels Us (cf. 2 Corinthians 5:14-20), with special reference to reconciliation with creation.
Have a look at the Order of Service below. During the service there is a nursery offered for infants and a programme for children. Parking is free on the streets around the church, and in the public surface lot just behind the church off Queen Street. If you are in the area, you would be very welcome!
