This Sunday, November 5th, we will celebrate Remembrance Sunday with a special Time of Remembrance in the worship service as well as the Sacrament of Communion. Also, we wish to provide a few other important reminders:

  • Don’t forget that this weekend is the time change and you will need to set your clocks “back” one hour before retiring on Saturday evening.
  • GO Transit has moved up their planned road and sidewalk closure to this weekend (i.e. late November 3rd to early Monday, November 6th) on Main Street as well as Eureka Street at the railway crossing. There will be NO access to the church from the north and you will have to approach the parking lot from Hwy. 7, i.e. the south.
