Summer services. Begin on Sunday 25th June, when we switch to
just one service of Holy Eucharist at 9.30 am each week. This will run
until September. The service on 25th June is an extra special one because
we shall be having baptisms, which hasn’t happened for a while, so get
up a little earlier and plan on attending this very special event.

The church office is open Monday to Friday, 9.00 am to 1.00 pm.

Prayer lists.
Parish members are invited to have the name of a person
upheld in prayer during Sunday services Intercessions (Prayers of the People)
by simply entering the name in the black prayer request book located in the
Narthex. Those unable to attend to this can call the office and ask that Kathy
enter the name in the book on your behalf. Sharon will again be managing
the prayer list. Please note that a number of names have been removed as
there have been no updates in a long time. If your loved one’s name is not
on the active prayer list a simple call the office at 519-660-6198 to again have
the name added. Thanks to all who give updates status on Prayer needs.
