Vision/Mission, Leadership & Staff

Good, Good Father, We come to you with thankful hearts, ready to start a new year in your Son's strength. There is so much to do oh Lord, and yet we know if we do not do it by keeping in step with your Holy Spirit that we will labour in vain. And so we ask God that you would attune us to your voice. May our choices reflect your will. We ask and pray

The Forgotten

I remember a Friday night many years ago when friends going away for a weekend left without me simply because I couldn’t get off work till 6pm.  I’ve since recovered from that slight (even had a good weekend without them!) but it was no fun at the time to be forgotten. You likely have a story of being forgotten.  It may be a profound story that has shaped your life or an easily forgiven oversight

The Candle of Peace

A LAMENT FROM THE PEOPLE... Oh, King of Peace, Prince of Peace! Oh, this world needs You. Peace isn’t something that we’ve got too much of, that’s for sure. If we’re looking at the big picture of the world or the little picture of our own lives- to have peace characterize our lives and our relationships sounds like a dream. And that it would take a miracle. We know it’s not supposed to depend on

The Candle of Hope

A LAMENT FROM THE PEOPLE... So here we are, God. Our calendars tell us it's Advent and that we're to be celebrating. But frankly, God - and forgive our complaining - or perhaps it's truth-telling - but one quick look around the globe and the conflict and killing and the cruel way we treat each other - and it just reminds us how busted we are. We read the newspapers in the morning and the headlines

Pray, Walk, Resist and Intercede – The Work of Us Priests (Including You!)

New habits are difficult to form. Things can start out well but it’s tough to keep it up. Thus, when I publicly committed myself to weekly prayer walking in the Next Door neighbourhood I knew that I was in for a battle. I am two weeks into my new commitment and things are going well, but come September my schedule will fill up and, come winter and shorter days, motivation will wane to make it

A Prayer for Every Day

  My thoughts are scattered, My tongue can't speak. My knees don't bend, And my heart is weak. But help me, Father, Like sky and tree, In every moment Live a prayer to Thee. My climbing out of bed, Praise Your Name. My putting on the kettle, A confession of my need. My coming and my going, Thank you Lord. My texts and emails, Supplication for my friends. My stirring at the stove, Meditation on

Reflecting on a Week of Prayer

Week of Prayer is one of my favourite things that we do together as a church.  I love picking a time slot where I know I can set aside whatever I'm doing to pick a quiet spot in the house, put on some peaceful music, light a candle or two and spend time with God.  It's a time where I can re-evaluate where I am at with God and where I'd like to be.
