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.
Have you recently updated to a brand new laptop? If so, would you consider donating your previous model to the Church Office for ministry use? Your generous gift will help support our growing ministry to children, youth and young families. Please contact Sharon at the Church office.
Life in Jesus' Time
During the 10 AM service, there will be a special event in Soward Hall for families and anyone else who wishes to participate during the service. This event will also continue during Coffee Hour for those who were in the service. We will be tasting food from Jesus' time, playing games he might have played and more.
All parishioners are encouraged to come dressed for Biblical times.
World Day of Prayer
The World Day of Prayer is a common day of prayer observed by Christian women in more than one hundred and seventy countries and regions. It is held on the first Friday in March. In 2015, the host country is The Bahamas and St. Timothy's is one of the host churches in Toronto. Please plan to attend this service, with parishioners from other area churches, on Friday, March 6th at 1.30 pm at St. Timothy's. The service will be followed by refreshments in Soward Hall.
Thank you to Janet Gordon who takes the lead with our Stone Soups, the children for making pretzels and to everyone who contributed food and helped with setting up and in the kitchen with preparation and clean up. Thank you also for your generous financial contributions for lunch. Four hundred dollars will be forwarded to the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund for the Pikangikum Water Project which provides water and waste management systems to some of the twenty two hundred residents of this impoverished community in northern Ontario.
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.
