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.

Come out and enjoy a BBQ dinner along with some fun outdoor games. Besides having the usual 3-legged race and potato sack race, we will be having our annual Anglican egg toss!! If you haven't participated in the egg toss before, it is quite the event, lots of fun, and potentially messy!
All ages welcomed. Hope to see you there!
Thank you to Phillip and Daniel for their remarks about the importance of FaithWorks last Sunday. If you have not done so, please pick up your FaithWorks package from Soward Hall. After prayerfully considering your contribution, return the completed donation card in the envelope provided and help us reach our goal of $10,000.00. Thank you.
Old Orchard Blossoms Striding Again
Once again this year several St Timothy's folk are joining the Stride to Turn the Tide Walk at Earl Bales Park on June 14. This walk raises money for the Stephen Lewis Foundation which supports grandmothers in Africa who are raising their orphaned grandchildren.
Joanna White, Mary Kirton, Jane Hutchinson, Judith Ransom, Ada James, and others may be asking for your support. Please be generous! And if you would like to come out and walk with us, you are most welcome!
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.
Memorial Flower Donations
Each Sunday flowers are put on the High Altar and Chapel Altar. Money to buy these flowers is donated by parishioners to remember people in their lives who have passed away or to give thanks for people or significant events in their lives.
If you want to give a memorial or thank offering we have dates some available September 2014 to June 2015.
Please contact Sharon Phillip, office administrator at 416-488-0079 or Trish Beck.
Jars for Christmas Kitchen
Believe it or not, it's already time to start making preserves for Christmas Kitchen. 250 and/or 125 ml mason style jars are needed by our busy cooks. If you are able to make a donation of used or new jars, please leave them on the counter in the ground floor kitchen.
We are looking for:
- Volunteers to watch the nursery in the interim. We are looking to create a roster so people would only have to volunteer for 1 or 2 Sundays.
- Readers, Communion assistants, Intercessors and Collators.
Please contact Ginny Lyon
Want us to pray for you?
Each week during the "prayers of the people" we pray for parishioners and friends who are facing obstacles in their lives. They feel and we know that prayer support can be helpful. If at any time you wish to have parish support in prayer please let us know. This is a personal confidential request to help as we face difficult life issues. We do it as part of our belief in Christ's ability to help us.
To be added to the prayer list: Simply let the church office know or speak to one of our clergy.
To be removed from the pray list: If you wish to remove your prayer request when the crisis passes just let the church office or one of the clergy know. Your parish in prayer can be a powerful support and we are here for each other.
