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.


animals Blessing of the Animals Service.
Bring your pets to church on Sunday October 21st for a special blessing!
Please make sure they are safely kept in their carriers, cages or on their leashes
during the service. If you have (or had) a pet but can’t bring it to church for whatever
reason, simply bring a picture or a toy animal and we’ll bless your pet that way.



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. The St. John’s Book Club meets on the 4th Wednesday of each month from September to June (except for December) in Room 15 of the Maritime Conservatory.
