Why Creation Matters:
A Four-Part Study Series

Tuesdays, 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
June 14, 21, 28 and July 5

All are welcome to join Fr. Stephen, our honorary assistant, for a four-part study series this June.


In an era of increasingly alarming weather events, we know that there is something dreadfully ailing our planet. And we know our own overconsumption and use of fossil fuel is the culprit. But, how did we get here? Does Christianity have anything to say? Does the bible speak to our current climate crisis? Yes.

Join Fr. Stephen for a four-week series 'Why Creation Matters' this Easter Season. The course will be held Tuesday evenings starting June 14th from 7:30 to 9 p.m. in the Ministry Centre (yellow building to the immediate north of the church). Please RSVP by visiting this link.
