St Chad’s (Toronto) celebrates 100 years – June 21, 2009 ...
On Sunday, June 21, St Chad’s celebrates its 100th anniversary with a service of celebration at 11am. All those in the Toronto area are invited. The Rev Stan Fowler, academic Dean and Professor of Theology at Heritage Seminary, will preach. Reception follows in the church hall. St Chad’s meets at 24 Innes Ave. (Caledonia south of Rogers Rd) – with convenient TTC access and parking. For more information, call 416-653-2338 or 905-873-6973.

St Chad’s was begun in 1909 as a mission and provided a parish home for many newcomers to Canada from England. Since then, many have made St Chad’s home. Children have been taught, young people confirmed, couples married, and families given the comfort of a Christian hope. As its neighbourhood developed, St. Chad’s continued to welcome newcomers.

St Chad’s centennial celebration will mark both 100 years of history as well as a new beginning with the ANiC under the guidance of Bishop Don who came for confirmation last fall and Bishop Malcolm who led our parish mission. The people of St Chad’s are also celebrating their connection with countless faithful Anglican Christians who, over the years, thought it important to meet together, worship the Lord, educate their children and make a difference in our city.

St John’s Richmond pilots new “Bible in a Day” course – May 30, 2009 ...
St John’s Richmond is developing and hosting a one-day seminar called “Bible in a Day”. The Rev Sean Love says, “God has given us this vision as a means of engaging our community. So many people – both outside and even inside the church – understand very little of the Biblical story.” The seminar will take a narrative and theological approach to the storyline of Scripture, offering a clear, coherent – “jargon-free – overview of the Bible designed for adults with little church background.

On May 30, St John’s will hold a "dress-rehearsal" to fine tune the day. Then later in the year, it will be run again with full-scale advertising in the community. “Over time,” Sean says, “we hope to leverage the day by adding new 'tracks' that will explore Biblical themes in a deeper way, developing new Bible teachers, and involving other churches in Richmond.” For more information, see the course brochure.
