September 11th: 'Welcome Back' Sunday

On Sunday September 11th we will have special events to celebrate Sunday School registration, the return of our members from summer holidays, and the beginning of the school year.

Sunday School registration will take place at the 10.30 service. For more information about this place contact our Sunday School Coordinator, Tricia Laffin (call or email the office to get her contact information).

At both services we will have a blessing of backpacks for children beginning a new school year. Children are asked to bring their backpacks (with any contents that seem appropriate to their parents!) and we will ask the kids to bring them to the front and have a special prayer of blessing for them. We will also pray for those returning to college or university.

After the 10.30 service we will have a barbeque. Everyone is invited to stay behind and join in; hamburgers, hot dogs and drinks will be provided. Note that we will be using some of the Reach Campaign money to cover supplies for this event.

 New Members’ Brunch is coming up on Saturday Sept 24th at 10am at the Church. If you have joined our Parish in the last year or two and have not attended one of our welcome brunches, please come and join us for a time of fellowship and enjoy a meal.
