Messy Church

‘Messy Church’ is a creative, kid-friendly way of offering the opportunity to be part of a Christ-centred community that is welcoming and great fun. Designed around a casual meal, story-telling, music and crafts. Messy Church is a wonderful way to meet the spiritual needs of young families who are unable to participate on Sunday mornings and/or who are uncomfortable with ‘traditional church’.

We will host a Messy Church gathering with a Valentine theme on Tuesday, February 12 from 5 – 7 pm. We would love some volunteers to assist with the meal, crafts, games and music. We would love for you to invite your neighbours and friends with young children to come and experience church in a new way.
Please speak to Uzo for more information.

Candlemas Service

Candlemas Service Saturday, February 2, 7pm at Market Square. Everyone is invited to be part of a beautiful Service of Light to celebrate Candlemas. All Anglican parishes of the Greater St. Catharines Area will gather for this inspiring service along with the music of Mari and George Express.

Fellowship over hot chocolate will follow the service. Come and be part of this spectacular moment as we push back the darkness and join together as bearers of light in the Compassionate City and area.

Note: this is the last night of Winterlicious—affordable fine dining in downtown St. Catharines. Consider going out for dinner to support a local restaurant and then participate in the worship service.

Sincere Thanks

Thanks to all who shared in the provision of a reception following the memorial service held for the late Edith Leemet on Thursday, December 27th. Edith joined our congregation when St. James closed their doors. It is obvious she was well respected and dearly loved as our church was overflowing with family and friends. What a wonderful tribute to a life well lived.

At such a busy time of year for everyone, it is heartwarming to know that we were still able to rally sufficient support to be able to offer a reception to the family during their time of deep loss.
