Bishop Jenny's visit on May 5, 2019

Godly Worship

 

Worship is one of the central acts of people of faith and, here at St. John's, we offer varied and different ways to worship. All are meaningful and valid and no one is more important than the other. We gather together, we are nurtured by the scripture, we sing, we pray, we listen, and we converse. Come to any of our worship services at St. John’s. Everyone is welcome to participate fully. The most difficult visit to any place of worship is always the first one. If you are visiting with us for the first time and are not sure which service to attend, give our pastor a call. Pastor Dawn will be happy to chat with you and can be reached at 416-763-2393.

Try out more than one type of worship service to get a sense of the activities and priorities of our community. In an effort to make you feel welcome, our service leaflet includes everything you will need to participate. If you feel unsure of how to participate, someone is always there to help. If you need to blend in, people will give you your space. We’re friendly and we will respect wherever you are on your faith journey. We hope you will experience the presence of God when you worship with us. That’s the kind of space we are trying to create. You are most welcome here!

Scriptures

We participate in a cycle of readings called the Revised Common Lectionary.

 

Each Sunday, as part of the Worldwide Anglican Communion and in fellowship with other Christian churches all over the world, we all pray from and learn about the same scripture text. 

 

If you wish to have a look ahead at what we will be reading on Sunday or would like to follow your own daily or weekly reading plan, go to (https://www.biblegateway.com/reading-plans/revised-common-lectionary-semicontinuous/next?version=CEB)

 

You will find several different scripture translations on the site. We recommend the New Revised Standard Version or the Common English Bible. We also regularly use the Inclusive Bible translation at St. John’s, however this version is not available on the site.

Queer Eucharist

is on hiatus until further notice

What is it anyway?

Queer Eucharist is an opportunity to explore God through words, images, music, thought, theology and liturgy as it is expressed within LGTBQ+ communities. Come and explore God in an informal, conversational liturgy that welcomes your thoughts and questions! Then stay for refreshments and more conversation. 

Everyone is truly welcome.
