Simeon with Infant Jesus – Petr Brandl (1668 – 1735)

After all the excitement and activity of Christmas, a time to treasure and to reflect. We hear again about the wonderful journey of Simeon, who was guided to the Temple by the Holy Spirit and there beheld the infant brought by Mary and Joseph – and with him we can sing, ‘Lord, you are now dismissing your servant in peace … for my eyes have seen your salvation’ (Luke 2:22-40). But to what do you think Simeon is looking in this painting by Petr Brandl?

While our minister continues with sermons on ‘journeys of grace’, our singing will be accompanied on the grand piano by Annabelle T., and Benjamin V. will play “Vivace from Violin Concerto in D minor” by J.S. Bach on his violin after the reading of Scripture.

If you are in the area, we warmly invite you to join us. Certified child care is offered during the service and 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.
