All are welcome to attend in-person services. Entry is from the main doors on King Street East. Weather-permitting, coffee hour follows the ten o’clock service out in the Nativity Gardens behind the church.

Service Guidelines are available here.

Masks are not required, but with the current surge in COVID cases we do strongly recommend that you wear a high-quality medical mask for in-person attendance.

You can join the service, live or later, via YouTube. The live-stream will begin at 9:45 am, and the service itself will begin at 10 am. You’ll be able to watch or re-watch it on YouTube at the same link at any later time.

You can find the order of service here. It includes the readings, the responses, and the hymns, so you can join in as fully as possible via the live-stream.

This Sunday, we’ll begin with some special prayers marking the death of our head of state, the Elizabeth II, the Queen of Canada, and praying for our new monarch, King Charles III.

The woman who had lost one of her ten coins rejoices after lighting the lamp and sweeping the floor to search for it.

From the first letter to Timothy, we’ll be reminded that Christ Jesus comes into the world to save sinners–good news for all people! (1 Timothy 1.12–17). And in the gospel passage, we’ll hear two parables Jesus tells when religious leaders grumble about him welcoming and eating with sinners–and the joy of finding those who had been lost (Luke 15.1–10).
