Places To Get Involved…
￼Christian Education: Adult
Diverse opportunities for engaging our faith are offered including study groups that meet throughout the year to read and discuss books or videos about faith and current issues. The Bigger Questions? group meets the first Tuesday of the month for a lively discussion with no topic off limits. The Wednesday morning Eucharist provides an opportunity to engage with scripture as the group participates in discussion in place of a sermon.
The Anglican Church Women (ACW) meet monthly for lunch and a presentation. Speakers may include representatives from local service groups and members who have visited an interesting location. Members bring donations (typically clothing) for community groups. All funds raised by the ACW are donated to local charities.
Prayer Circle meets every other week to pray for concerns of the parish and beyond.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
A group of faithful knitters and crocheters gather to pray, share and create shawls that are blessed and given to those who are sick, grieving or struggling to be wrapped in the embrace of God’s love and surrounded by prayer. Beginners are welcome.
Wednesday Morning Group
A small group meets weekly each Wednesday morning for Eucharist in the chapel. These gatherings run from January through June and begin again in September and continue through mid December. Following each service, we gather for light refreshments in a social setting in the Fireside room.
The Church has strong representation in community outreach activities. Some examples include:
- St. George’s Breakfast Program: Parishioners participate once monthly in this daily breakfast program for those in need.
- Community Care:
- Volunteer Work: A group of parishioners volunteer for this organization, collecting food throughout the year and running the “layettes for newborns” program.
- The Advent Table: During the first two Sundays in Advent, baked goods, preserves, and crafts are sold, with proceeds donated to Community Care. Community Garden: For the past nine summers, a vegetable garden has been planted on church property. The purpose of the garden is to provide fresh produce to Community Care for their clientele.
- Lenten Lunches: Each Wednesday during Lent, homemade soups and salads are served to raise money for the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund.
- Brock University: Outreach to the University and its students is growing. We host “Tooney Suppers” for students at the church every second Wednesday through the fall and spring terms.
- Shaver Songbirds: A group of parishioners offer sing-alongs with patients at the Hotel Dieu Shaver Hospital.
