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.
The Wardens and Parish Board are excited to announce the appointment of a part time Associate Priest to St. Timothy's. Due to increased activities and opportunities for young families, our new Associate Priest will support and nurture children, youth and young families. The Reverend Liska Stefko will begin her ministry with us in February. She comes to us from the Church of the Redeemer, here in Toronto, where she served as a student, Curate and Associate priest for the past five years. Reverend Liska also works part time for L'Arche in Richmond Hill. The funding for this part time position will come from funds specifically designated for ministry. Please help us welcome Liska to our church.

February 22nd Vestry Motion:
Each year, the Diocese asks churches to pass a Vestry motion on an important issue of social or environmental justice. This year, it is not a simple endorsement of a statement. We need a small working group to develop an action plan related to climate change. Suggestions for action and additional information can be found on the Social Justice and Advocacy web page of the Diocese. if you would be interested in working on this, please contact Richard or Greg as soon as possible.
