NEWS & EVENTS
We're always up to something
SUNDAY, JUNE 3rd AT 4:00 PM
In January 2019 we will have been gathering as a community in Christ for 10 years!
As such, Corporation has decided that we should spend time together this year renewing Our Vision and, more importantly, how we incorporate this vision in our daily lives, both individually and as a corporate body, to become a congregation of Bold Witnesses, Biblically Grounded, Loving Children & Families, On Mission, and Planting & Growing Churches.
Of course, we realize that we cannot do this outside of God’s will and provision which we discover in His Word and in prayer. As such, we are calling the congregation together for a time of prayer of discernment Sunday June 3rd, 4:00 PM (after the service and fellowship).
SATURDAY, JUNE 2nd
Various events at 8 locations around the West Island. See poster on Bulletin Board.
We will have a Prayer Station at LHBC during the duration of Big Give events to continue our prayer coverage of the events and also to offer prayer to anyone from the community who desires. Speak to Deacon Alan if you are willing to be a Prayer Warrior at the Station for a few hours.
MONDAY, JUNE 4th | Bethel Community Church, 105 Dieppe
Come hear how you can share the Gospel all over the world. Entrance $5.00.
MONDAY TO FRIDAY, AUGUST 20th - 24th

Watch Bishop Charlie share a short weekly update on what's happening in ANiC, a scripture verse and prayer requests from across the country.
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.
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
VERSE OF THE WEEK
The Great Commission
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:18-20 (ESV)
Collect of the week
Almighty and everlasting God, who've given unto us your servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and in the power of the Divine Majesty to worship the Unity: We beseech you, that this holy faith may evermore be our defence against all adversities; who lives and reigns, one God, ages without end.
