July and August Sundays and Wednesdays


On Summer Sundays at 10:30 we will be singing some favourite hymns and looking at how they were inspired and continue to inspire God’s people.


On Wednesday Evenings at 7:30 Cool Summer Praise will be held in the Fellowship Room.  We’ll be singing a variety of songs from the golden oldies of folk, pop and rock to spirituals and contemporary worship. Meditations will be inspired by “Untamed: Reactivating a missional form of discipleship” by Alan and Debra Hirsch (Baker Books, 2010).  Ice cream will be served during the messages that will be short and sweet!


“Untamed is a desperately needed shot of spiritual adrenaline into our mild-mannered and mediocre attempts at following Christ”
