News & EVENTS
It's time for our Thanksgiving Sunday Banner! Available in paper at our church gathering or for download here.
Saint Timothy's Banner is more than a newsletter. It contains messages from the people, poetry and even jokes. It is a place to express yourself and share individual testimonies as well as words of wisdom. It is a place where we remember those we have lost. But first and foremost it is a showcase for Christ in our lives! You can catch up on our previous editions too.

Anglican Relief and Development Fund Canada (ARDFC) is partnering with the Anglican Diocese of Cameroon to provide a full service healthcare clinic in the city of Douala. It will offer inexpensive, quality care to people who do not have access to, or who cannot afford, health care and medications.
The clinic will be operated by the Diocese, which is part of the Church of West Africa, and is expected to provide care to about 1000 patients each month. The Diocese will ensure that patients have access to affordable care as well as hear the Good News of the Great Physician.
Read more about the project and donate online at the ARDFC website.
October 25 - 27, 2017 | Burlington, ON
Our ANiC Synod will be taking place in Burlington, Ontario this year, and the theme will be "Remember Jesus", taken from 2nd Timothy 2:8-10:
Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, the offspring of David, as preached in my gospel, for which I am suffering, bound with chains as a criminal. But the word of God is not bound! Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
June 17 - 22, 2018 | Jerusalem, ISRAEL
GAFCON 2018 will be held in Jerusalem, returning to the place where the movement began in 2008 when over 1,000 delegates acclaimed the inspirational Jerusalem Statement and Declaration. Attendance increased to over 1,500 for GAFCON 2013 in Nairobi and we expect a healthy increase in 2018.
“The Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON) is enabling the Anglican Communion to be fit for God’s purposes in the twenty-first century. We are uniting Anglicans around the world in faithful witness to Jesus Christ and recovering Biblical truth where it has been compromised. There is much still to do, but we give great thanks to God for his grace at work among us.”
— Archbishop Nicholas Okoh, GAFCON Chairman & Primate of the Church of Nigeria
October PRAYERs For Upcoming Elections
Imagine the impact in the West Island if every elected representative at every level of government was prayed for daily. Imagine the impact on the quality of decisions made, our neighbourhoods and communities if every mayor and counsellor was prayed for every day. The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with (James 5:16).
November 5th is election day where we will be voting on our mayors and counsellors.
Let's take this month to seek the Lord in prayer for the political leaders of our West Island cities.
HOW TO PRAY:
Find out who is running in your city and pray for them by name
(practical tip: as you drive and walk around and see posters, take a minute to say a prayer for that person).
Pray that the West Island would have elected leaders that are individuals of discernment, courage,
conviction, willing servants, people of vision, perseverance and character.
That the candidates will be filled with integrity, courage, humility and grace.
Pray for wisdom, endurance and protection for candidates and their families.
VERSE OF THE WEEK
Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, there is no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for my sake and for the sake of the gospel who will not receive in this age a hundred times as much — homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, fields, all with persecutions — and in the age to come, eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last first.”
Mark 10:29-31 (NET)
Collect of the week
The Eighteenth Sunday After Trinity
Lord, we beg you, grant your people grace to withstand the temptations of the world, the flesh, and the devil, and with pure hearts and minds to follow you the only God; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
