SUNDAYS at 9:30 am IN THE PARISH HALL
People of all ages are welcome ‘as you are’ to our informal Café Church.
- Have a cup of Fair Trade coffee.
- Help yourself to a muffin (peanut free and gluten free available).
- Join in singing, listening and sharing ideas on how we can live each day positively and purposefully.
Each month, we delve into an issue or concern that affects our lives, our neighbourhood, our city and, perhaps, the world. When possible, we invite someone with in-depth knowledge of the topic to come on one of the Sunday’s to speak to us and to respond to any questions or opinions we might have.
November: Refugees. November 1, we welcome Anne Woolger from Matthew House, a shelter for newly arrived refugee claimants who would otherwise be homeless. Since opening in 1998, they have welcomed and assisted over 1300 refugees from 93 different nations. They have been a catalyst for the opening of six other refugee shelters across the country. A recipient of a Diamond Jubilee Medal, Ms Woolger has been involved in the refugee advocacy community for over 25 years, and has been involved in local, national, and international refugee organisations, including representing Canada at UNHCR meetings in Geneva.
December: Elder Care. December 6, We welcome Karen Henderson from the Long Term Care Planning Network. Ms Henderson is a well-known educator, speaker, writer, media commentator, publisher, and consultant in the field of long term care. She has been published in leading geriatric journals in Canada and has spoken across Canada and the US to a wide variety of organisations, from hospitals to law firms.
