Visiting people of our Parish who can’t come to church. Did you know that 30 households of our Parish have limited or no mobility. This makes it impossible or very difficult for these people to participate in activities at the church. If you would like to be part of a group of Home Visitors who help make friendly informal visits, or if you would like more information, please speak to the Rector.
Parish Hosts are required to be in attendance when a non-parish group is using our worship space. Parish hosts would welcome these groups and ensure their comfort while present in our church. For more information please speak to the Rector.

Today, April 28th, 2013 – the current service roster ends. Many worship leaders are prepared to continue to serve, but we would like to include others who might wish to join us. Several opportunities are as follows: the Greeter, the Sideperson, a Prayer Leader, a Server and an Administrant. We now have only 3 coffee groups – we would encourage other people to become part of this ministry. We really need 4 coffee groups. There is help – coaching, coming alongside – for anyone who would like to participate. Beth-Anne and Kathy will be happy to assist you for as long as you need. Please consider joining us in one of these ministries as part of your Worship of God. Please talk to Kathy Hutchinson or Sandy Sherman (Vestry members) for more information.
