“Does God Heal Today?” “What about the Church?”  These are the final two questions we’ll be exploring as we complete our Summer Alpha Series.

We will be exploring the first of these questions, “Does God Heal Today?”, on Saturday night, September 10th at 7pm. This special Saturday night Alpha session will, as always, include a brief film on the topic followed by a time of small group discussion and include a time of informal prayer and worship. Everyone is welcome to attend, even those who haven’t been able to make it to the other Alpha Film Series discussions.

Then on Sunday morning we will conclude our summer Alpha series by exploring the question “What about the Church?”

If you have found this series helpful and would like to help us make the Alpha experience available to others in our community (in particular friends and neighbours who don’t typically go to church) then please let me know. We are putting together an Alpha Team (kinda like the ‘A-team’) to help organize another Alpha series this Fall. There will be a brief information session following this Sunday’s morning service about the Fall Alpha series. This will also be an opportunity for people to sign-up for the Alpha team training morning taking place on Saturday, September 17 at Trinity Anglican Church in Saint John, from 10am to 1pm. Lunch will be provided!

If you are not able to make it to the information session on Sunday but would like to get involved, or even just want to find out more, please let me know.


Rev. David “Mr. T” Turner 

September 25th is Back to Church Sunday.

Back to Church Sunday is an opportunity for all of us to be intentional about inviting others to church. If going to church, and more importantly being part of the church is something we value why wouldn’t we invite others to come and check it out? 
We’ve printed some attractive invitation cards which you can personalize and give to those who you’d like to invite. And as we will have gone back to our usual two services by the 25th you will also want to write on their invitation the time of the service to which you would like to bring them. It’s amazing what can come from a simple invitation.

Attention Saint John-Kennebecasis area folks!
Help is needed to put the final touches on having the Diocesan Resource Centre available for use.  Over the summer months, the materials were combined with the Taylor College Library (at Threshold Ministries). The work that remains is as simple as having pairs of people working together, one person calling out information from the book and another typing it in on a computer.  If you are on Facebook, then you have the computer skill needed. We will work out a time that is best for you and if we have enough volunteers the work might only take a week or two.
