Episcopal Election
» Sunday, December 31, 2017


A special electoral synod will convene on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at Christ’s Church Cathedral in Hamilton to elect the successor to Diocesan Bishop Michael Bird. Archbishop Colin Johnson, metropolitan of the ecclesiastical province of Ontario, will preside at the synod.

A coadjutor bishop is a person elected to assist and ultimately succeed a diocesan bishop. In September, Bishop Bird announced that he will conclude his episcopal ministry on May 31, 2018 after ten years as chief priest and pastor of the diocese. After a short transition period following the election, the coadjutor bishop will assume the responsibilities of diocesan bishop on June 1.

Nursery & Sunday Club
» Sunday, June 18, 2017


Re-Starting the Sunday Nursery
The Sunday nursery allows parents the option of having their children aged 0-3 to go to the nursery. Of course, children of any age are always welcome to stay in Church too. (If they make noises they're only fulfilling their job description and it reminds us all that this is a living Church.)
However, to provide parents with a choice we're offering a nursery in the Parish Hall, 3rd floor, during the 10:00am service.  The nursery will be staffed mostly by parents and we have several who have volunteered already. We'd like to get more volunteers so, if you're willing, please let Heather Faint know by email: heather.benson86gmailcom


Children's Focus in Church at the start of 10:00 am Sunday Service
Each Sunday our 10:00am Church service will start with a short children's focus, just after the opening hymn.  Parents, please bring your children to Church with you. The Sunday School teachers will then lead them across to the Parish Hall for Sunday School following the children's focus.
