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.
This year we will be celebrating Christmas with a pageant presented by the children of St. Timothy's on December 24th at 4:30pm. All children are welcome to participate. As we did last year, this will be a tableau with the children in costume playing the roles of the various participants but not having any speaking roles. The story will be told by two narrators. The congregation will participate by singing hymns.
Those interested in participating should meet in the Baptistry this Sunday following the 10:00 a.m. service.
The rehearsals will be on December 14th following the 10:00am service, and on December 21st during the 10:00am service in the Sunday School time and will be in the Loft.
We will meet on December 24th at 3:45pm to don our gay apparel and prepare for the presentation at 4:30pm.
We look forward to a wonderful celebration of the birth of Jesus presented by our youngest members.

Blessings and Hope Trees
Over the Advent season, Blessings and Hope Trees are placed in the church.
Advent and Christmas can be both a time of great joy and a time of challenge.
Not everyone is full of joy for the Christmas season. Dealing with the death of a loved one, facing life after divorce or separation, coping with uncertain employment, living with illness. Each puts a question mark over the future, while a number of other human situations make the season painful for some. With our Blessing and Hope Tree, we are creating a sacred opportunity. You are encouraged, as part of your Christmas preparation, to hang a note of thanks for memories, blessings received or hope for the coming year.
We live as people of healing and hope.
This year's financial campaign has been all about time, talent and treasures!
St. Timothy's displayed their time, talent and treasures to the neighbourhood last Saturday at the 21st Christmas Kitchen. People were lined up outside the church before 9:30am so that they would have lots of choices of food to purchase. Our tables were overflowing. Fast forward to 11:30am and people walked in to very empty offerings. However, the Silent Auction was just getting going with over 250 items to bid on , and a beautiful ham on a bun lunch available as well as Santa's Photos without the mall lineups! Our Young Shoppers Room had a record amount of sales!
We would like to thank all who contributed baking, preserves, items for the Young Shoppers Room as well as items for the Silent Auction.
St. Timothy's Volunteers are amazing! It is a wonderful sense of community and fellowship that goes on when organizing this major fund raiser!
To date our proceeds for the Christmas Kitchen/Silent Auction has profited over $21,500!
The Stop Community Food Centre:
Our Extra Effort for The Stop in December........
When consulted, Rekha Cherian, Food Bank Coordinator emailed "the two items we need the most are rice and beans –all kinds including brown rice, lentils, black beans, red kidney beans and canned beans. Alternative dairy such as soy milk and almond milk in tetra packs would also be great". Cartons will be available in the narthex and outside the office from December 7th to December 21st to receive your donations to support this outstanding organization.
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!
