We are glad you have visited us at St Timothy′s. Please join us for our many church services and community events. If you don't already belong to a faith community, and you're looking for a place
to experience God,
to grow spiritually,
and to ask questions,
we'd be delighted to welcome you to the St Timothy's family. We hope that all newcomers will feel welcome and included. Kids are an especially important part of our life; we encourage their full participation.
St Timothy's is an active congregation. There are lots of opportunities for involvement, learning, worship and service for people of all ages.
Less than 1 week until the Christmas Kitchen Event
Please see notice board outside the office to see how you can help at this major fundraising event for the Church!
Donations for Christmas Kitchen,Young Shoppers' Room Needed!
Most of the items in this room are provided by parishioners. If you would like to donate something, please note that the maximum price for articles in this room is $5, so please do not be too extravagant (although multi-item sets such as toiletry items can always be divided). Popular items in the past have included soaps, candles and stationary. Gifts for Dad are welcome as they are usually in short supply. Donations should be handed in by Sunday November 23 and should be marked 'young shoppers' room' or something similar. They can be dropped off in the Church Office during the week. Thanks for your help in making this room a success!
Elves for Christmas Kitchen Young Shoppers' Room Needed!
Every year a number of teenagers act as elves in the Young Shoppers' Room to help the younger children find things for their families. These hours can go towards the high school volunteer hour requirements. Elves are needed between 9:45 am and 1:30 pm and they are welcome to put in as little as an hour.
Evening Prayer is a time for rest and refreshment. We let go of the cares and stresses of the day and come to rest in our worship of God. With our offering of JazzEvenSong we have been combining the evening prayer order of service with Jazz as our liturgical music. On Sunday November 23rd, 4:30PM, we welcome the Tim Elliott Trio.
Tim Elliott, Piano; Glenn Anderson, Drums; Jack Zorawski, Bass
Please mark your calendar for upcoming services: February 22nd & April 12th at 4:30PM
Yes, it's almost that time again. Please circle your calendar for
Saturday Nov 29, for both the
and the Advent Pot Luck Supper.
Setup 5:00 pm
Supper 5:45 pm to 7.15 pm
Advent / Christmas carols 7:20-7:45 pm
With the Christmas kitchen occurring the same day, there is a bit less setup than usual as tables from that event will be re-usable for the Pot Luck supper.
As always, I will be coming to find you to get your best guess as to how many will be coming and what you will be bringing. My goal is always 100 participants - we've never achieved more than 80, but I keep hoping this is the year. It's a fun evening to sample many culinary specialties and catch up with fellow parishioners. I hope to see you there!
On November 29 there will be a Special Children's Activity from 5:30 to 6 PM in The Loft. Adults optional but most welcome! The Nursery will be open and supervised from 5:30 to 7 PM.
Living the Light
Carols and Choir in Contemplation of Christmas
Plan to attend our new and different Annual Carol Service
on Sunday December 7th at 7:00pm!
Emphasis will be on congregational singing of favourite Christmas carols and the Choir will sing some wonderful classics. A splendid way to get in the mood
for the Christmas Season.
Another opportunity to see and hear the Toronto Welsh Male Voice Choir!
The Toronto Welsh Male Voice Choir were impressed with the Grandmothers' ability to sell 600 tickets for the sold-out fundraising concert in October. So impressed, in fact, that they would like us to help them with ticket sales for their Christmas concert in December.
For every ticket that the Grandmothers sell for this concert, the choir will donate 25% of the ticket price to the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
So if you missed the October concert or attended and would like to repeat the wonderful experience, please contact us at:-
That way you'll not only be helping the African Grandmothers but you'll also save the $4.25 per ticket website surcharge. That's a great deal!
You don't have to pay now. We will have your tickets ready for pickup at the concert. Payment is by cash or cheque only.
So come on out for another enjoyable and entertaining evening on December 13th.
See you there!
Moorelands Christmas Sharing
This year St. Timothy's is "adopting" four families with seven children between them. We provide a grocery gift card for each family and presents for each child.

Financial donations are also welcome by cheque, made out to the Church of St. Timothy with Moorelands Christmas Sharing on the memo line. All unwrapped gifts must be at St. Timothy's by noon on Sunday, November 30th for delivery to Moorelands the following day. Thank you.
