What a great story into which to delve these weeks of summer! Bring it out of the nursery where it has for too long been relegated. Open it again as an intentional part of holy scripture. Bring it into the sanctuary and consider it anew as a revelation of the Holy One and of humanity. We begin this Sunday with the opening verses, ‘Now the word of the Lord came to Jonah …’ and await a word for our own lives.

Join us if you are in the area. There is free parking on the streets around and in the city surface lot just behind the church off Queen Street. A nursery is offered for infants, if desired. Have a look at the order of service below, and please consider each of the announcements as a personal invitation to grow in faith and community and life.

With Canada Day this year falling on a Sunday, we have a great opportunity to gather before God with thanksgiving for our nation, and for direction.

Sorting through my aunt’s house this past year, we found many treasures of family and community. From one book slipped an old paper bill, with a portrait of King George V, dated July 2, 1923, with the banner over all declaring ‘The Dominion of Canada’.

A ‘dominion’ never stands alone, is never entirely independent. A dominion is always related to another to whom it is accountable. Whose dominion is Canada?

We will explore the history behind this foundational appellation of our land, and in particular the biblical dimensions and applications.

We warmly welcome you to join us this Sunday. During the service a nursery is offered for infants and preschoolers. There is free parking in the city surface lot off Queen Street behind the church, and along the streets (please note that the time-of-day restrictions north of Queen are not in effect on Sundays).

With our feet on the good soil of God’s creation, and the leaves of the trees overhead providing shade, we will gather on the other side of the limestone walls of St. Andrew’s, on the lawn at the corner of Princess and Clergy. (Or if we receive some much needed rain, on the customary side of those walls, within the sanctuary!)

The theme that ties the scripture readings together is … ‘summer’!

Have a look at the Order of Service, and join us for worship, and for a congregational BBQ afterwards – whatever the weather. You might wish to linger even longer and take in the Skeleton Park Arts Festival just down the street.

There is parking on the surface city lot just behind the church off Queen Street and on neighbouring streets.
