Center Church

center churchWe are excited to be partnering with other churches in our neighbourhood to study Tim Keller’s “Center Church”.  The book is a great tool to provoke discussion on the Gospel, our relationship with the city, and how we can partner together with other Christian communities in a Gospel Movement.

If you are interested in learning more or being part of the St George team, join us Thursdays at 7:30pm in the Rectory main floor for conversation led by Rev Simon Davis.

Attn: Adam & Evestrough

evesRecently we communally pulled together the funds for the rectory roof.  Fantastic!

The mighty summer rains have highlighted another building need – repair is needed for the rectory eavestroughs.  Join us in this campaign to reach $6900 by the end of September!

You can donate in person by means of a designated envelope or through Canada Helps under the ‘Rectory Roof and Upkeep’ category.

With special  thanks to a few members of Sunday School who created this awesome poster.

Holy Week Service Times

Journey with us Through Holy Week

The services of Holy Week are intended to allow us as believers to enter into the mysteries of Jesus Christ’s passion, death, and resurrection.  As we enter into the rhythm of this liturgical week, we become participants in the events of this week in Jesus’ life.  Through the various services we discover the meaning of our Lord’s death and resurrection, as it is illuminated through scripture and prayers.  We invite you to journey with us through scripture, prayer and worship through a wide variety of liturgies with our local community.

 During Holy Week, as we prepare to celebrate and remember the death and resurrection of Jesus, it is a good opportunity to reflect on your own life.  Private Confession is a sacrament available in the Anglican Church.  If you are interested in making a private confession, please speak to Fr. Harold for instruction and to set an appointment.

 March 20: Passion/Palm Sunday, 9am, 10am, 10:45am: We enter Holy Week with the liturgy of the Palms and the liturgy of the Passion. We celebrate Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem and look ahead to his crucifixion. The service will begin with a procession of palms, and our liturgy and worship will lead us through the scriptures set for these two liturgies.

March 24: Maundy Thursday, 7pm:  We celebrate the Last Supper: where Christ modelled servanthood for his disciples through the washing of their feet and instituted the Lord’s Supper while celebrating the Passover with his disciples. The service will take us from the upper room to the Garden of Gethsemane.

March 25: Good Friday: Procession of the Cross 10am: Join us as we walk through our parish praying and reflecting on the Stations of the Cross along the way, as we reflect and pray the stations of the cross we will also reflect on the life of our neighbourhood with visits to various historical sites in our community. Procession will start and end at the church building.

March 25: Good Friday Reflection 1pm: We continue to reflect on the themes of the Passion and the Death of Jesus through a reflective service, focusing on the passion and crucifixion of Jesus.

March 26: Easter Vigil, 7pm: We gather as the sun sets to celebrate the Great Vigil of Easter. This evening service marks the start of Easter, and leads us from darkness into light.  Through the reading of scripture we explore the themes of God’s salvation through the Hebrew Scriptures and celebrate the first liturgy of Easter.

March 27: Easter Day 9am, 10am, 10:45am: Join us as we continue to celebrate the resurrection of Christ throughout Easter Day with our regular services.  Our Area Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Philip Poole, will preside and preach at the 10:45am Service.  Following the service we will share a potluck meal to celebrate the resurrection of Christ together as a community.
