As part of our work towards possible amalgamation of the Gordon, St. Aidan’s, and Knox congregations, we are carrying out a visioning process with a facilitator. All congregation members are encouraged to take part in this process! Whether you are part of our "on line" community or connected to one of our sites, we invite you to join us.
February 22, March 8, March 22, April 12, April 19
7:00-9:00pm via Zoom
The Joint Session of Knox, Gordon, and St. Aidan's Presbyterian Church invite all members and adherents to join in the opportunity to reimagine how we might best steward the gifts and resources we have been given to share in God's mission of grace and blessing in our communities of New Westminster and Burnaby. There will be five two-hour sessions of conversation, prayer, and discernment:
- Session One - Preparing for the Journey
- Session Two - Asking the Questions that Really Matter to Us
- Session Three - Reflecting on the Ministries of our Congregations
- Session Four - The Mission of our Congregations and the Needs of our Community
- Session Five - Engaging the Future, Considering Next Steps
For those who cannot join us by Zoom, other options such as a telephone conference call or a one-on-one conversation will be available. For more information and to join, please contact your elder or minister.
This letter contains information for our congregation about the progress that has been made about a possible amalgamation with Knox and St Aidan’s.
After you have read the letter, if you have any questions about what you read, please phone the minister or your elder to obtain the clarification you need.
Please note that no final decision has been made. The final decision will rest with the congregation and we want everyone to have all the information possible, to make a wise decision.
While our in-person activities are suspended, there are still several ways to stay connected to the church!
If you would like to join the Emmaus Group please talk to Jim, Lindy, Les, Sandy, Barb or Ian. We would love to have your input. If you would like to donate to the Emmaus Group outreach programs, you can do so through your envelopes – “Other” – “Emmaus”. Thank you for your prayers and support in reaching out to our neighbours.
They practice on Saturday morning from 10:00am – 12:00pm. Their performances for the public are during the Christmas season on Saturday afternoons and during May, also on Saturday afternoons. The only requirement is that you read music beyond a beginning level. Handbell ringing experience is not required as we will teach technique in context with the music we are playing. We also play in some church services. Please contact Alma at email@example.com if you are interested in joining!
Do you love to sing? Our choir is searching for more singers. We sing traditional to contemporary, and practices are Thursday evenings from 7:30om to 9:00pm. The choir sings in the service every Sunday at 10:30am. Please contact Alma at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining!
