Coffee Hour in the Hearth Room is an important part of our parish fellowship. Many thanks to those who have signed up to host.
Please keep in mind that volunteers are regularly needed to sign up for a Sunday date in 2017. Currently we have hosts for up to April 1st. Please check the list in the Hearth Room to see where there is a need.
Although some people like to include generous treats, the refreshments can be as simple as coffee, tea (which are set up by our coordinator, Cathy Jones) and cookies so please don't hesitate to find a partner and volunteer together for less work!
Sundays at 9:00 am
Sundays at 10:30 am
St. John's Choir, led by organist Lawrence Eady, sings every Sunday at the 10:30 Eucharist as well as on special occasions. There is always a Cantor for the Psalm as well as an Anthem by the ensemble. There is also a Communion solo or duet for a time of quiet reflection. The congregation is encouraged to participate with the selected hymns of the day, all with accompaniment of either the piano or the organ. The Choir practices every Thursday evening in the Church if you would be interested in joining the group.
There is also a children's programme led by Laurie Angle at the 10:30 Eucharist for families with children. The children are invited to attend the service for their bible story lesson by our interim Pastor Cathie before the first reading after which they go to the Parish Hall for further play related to the liturgical theme of the day.
