On this anniversary Sunday, we thank God for another wonderful year of God’s grace and work in and through our congregation. 

This week we extend a warm welcome and thank you to the Rev. Dr. Ernest van Eck who is leading our worship service this morning. In September 2022 he became the new Principal of Knox College and was inducted as minister of the PCC in April 2023. The Rev. Dr. van Eck served as Deputy Dean: Research Postgraduate Studies and professor in New Testament in the Dept. of New Testament Studies, Faculty of Theology and Religion, at the University of Pretoria (2006-2022), and as an ordained minister of the Netherdutsch Reformed Church of Africa (1984-2023). He is the author of 58 scholarly articles, co-author of 25 essays and contributor to 8 academic books. His latest publication is a monograph on the parables of Jesus, titled “The parables of Jesus the Galilean: Stories of a social prophet.”

This week we also welcome guest organist, Dr. Gavin Winston to lead us in our musical worship. Dr. Winston is a physician and clinician scientist, whose work finds him in 3 places at once in Queen’s University: the Centre for Neuroscience Studies, the Translational Medicine Program, and the School of Computing. Here, he has done some fascinating work in applying computational neuroimaging approaches to assist people with epilepsy. And when he’s not on these jobs, he is a multi-tasking father and amazing organist!

Heartfelt thanks also to Bob, Janet Paul for contributing to our worship today.

Organ preludes will begin around 10:25 a.m. and the service will commence at 10:30 a.m. This is the link for this morning’s service is:
