4. Service Videos on Website and YouTube
We are recording our Sunday morning service each week, for those unable to attend it live. Look for it on the church website here: https://www.staidansinthebeach.com/services/pages/virtual-services, or on YouTube by searching St Aidan's in the Beach Sunday Service.
5. Lucy on Vacation
Lucy will be taking her vacation from Monday August 16 to Tuesday September 7. In a pastoral emergency please contact the Rev. Jeff Nowers at 647-784-5561 (call or text).
On the three Sundays that Lucy is away Jeff will be hosting the Zoom services, so watch for a new link.
6. Kneeler Cushion Survey
As we prepare for reopening we would like to get an idea of how many people will use kneeler cushions during services. The new pews will not have kneelers attached, instead cushions will be stored at the back of the church and will be picked up by parishioners on entry. Please reply to this email if you WOULD USE these cushions and specify if you usually attend the 8:30 or 10:30 service.
7. Learning Resources
Did you know that we have an extensive list of books and other learning resources on our church website? Take a look here:
Your regular offerings support the mission and ministry of St Aidan's, and we thank you. Here's how to make a donation:
9. Event Series Explores Reconciliation
The deacons of the Parkdale-West Toronto Deanery and York-Credit Valley present the second season of “A Reconciliation Walk,” a series of conversations that aims to be open to the voices of Indigenous people through stories, movies and discussions and guide participants in genuine reconciliation. This year’s theme is “Every Child Matters.” The first event will take place on Sept. 16 at 7 p.m. with a discussion of the film We Were Children. Registration will open in late August. The other dates in the series are Oct. 14, Nov. 4, Jan. 13 and Feb. 10.
