Back to Church Sunday: September 27th
In company with many churches around the world we are once again observing the last Sunday in September as ‘Back to Church Sunday’. This is a day when we are encouraged to invite friends or family members who do not normally come to church; we try to make the services easy to follow, and the sermon helpful for non-church people.
This year our theme will be ‘Getting into the Bible’, and I’m pleased to announce that Sylvia Jayakaran and Doug Sanderson have agreed to let me interview them at both services about their experiences of reading and studying the Bible: how they got interested in it, what excites them about it, what challenges they’ve faced in understanding and applying it, what their Bible reading habits are, and so on.
Please pray and ask God to guide you about who you might invite to join us for worship on these Sundays. There are invitations on the back foyer table. Help Yourself!
Reminder! We will be having a “Back to Church BBQ after the service for everyone, so please let the person/people you are bringing know so they can enjoy with us!
Registration for Sunday School will run until Sunday September 27th, 2015!
Forms will be given out to the children during Sunday School and will be collected after the 10:30 am service.

Faith, Fun and Fellowship: ‘Free For All’.
September 22nd, 2015 at 7:30 – 9:00 pm. Do you have a question about faith that you’d like to discuss? Bring it with you. We’ll list the questions, pick the first two or three to cover, and hold the others for next month.
Please sign the sheet in the foyer so we have a general idea of how many are coming!

Youth Blog:- We are in need of HELP from the congregation! The youth discipleship blog is up and running (http://stmargaretsyouth.blogspot.ca). We are looking for volunteers to write short practical pieces for the blog, aimed at the youth, about their own journey as disciples. Please e-mail Tim, stmrector@gmail.com and he will post them on the blog.
