bible study Suppertime Bible Study:
Mondays in Room 16 at the Conservatory, 5:30pm.

This very active group welcomes all, and encourages folks to enrich their faith and spiritual journey in this ever-changing world. Books, theologians, visual aids and bible studies all bring a better understanding of our faith. Questions, doubts, different points of view, and social gatherings define our time together. Call or email the minister for more information.


Bake Sale, November 25th, after church.
There will be a sale of baked goods, jams, jellies, marmalade and handcrafts after church on Sunday, November 25. All donations accepted! Please advise a member of the Stewardship Committee what you can bring. If you have any empty jam or marmalade bottles (small bottles with lids or preserving jars), Jim Sharpe can use them for jam, jelly and marmalade.

adventAdvent Retreat at Seton Spirituality Centre, Terrence Bay
Friday November 30th, 9:30am - 3:00pm.

$30 per person, includes lunch. Sign-up sheet is available at the welcome table.
The weeks before Christmas are often the busiest in our calendars. We may long to slow down and savour the season, but it is often difficult to make space for reflection and self-care amid the competing demands on our time. The staff of St. John’s invites you to a day away and a place apart to begin Advent with intention. There will be plenty of time for quiet meditation and walking in the beautiful natural setting in addition to optional guided activities to engage your spirit and senses. Space is limited. Please register by November 1.


mittens



Attention, KNITTERS! Cold days will soon be here, and in St. John's tradition, your Outreach Lead Team hopes to collect mittens, socks, scarves and hats for those in need. If you are able to knit (or shop!) we will collect these in December. Thank you!




St. John's Book Club. It’s a “group of characters” who enjoy discussing a “group of characters”. If you like to read a wide variety of books on every topic imaginable, then this is the club for you.
