Coming Events

We have entered the season of Lent which began with Ash Wednesday and continues through to Easter Sunday.  The seasons of Lent and Easter are highlights of the Christian year.  Read more about worship services during the seasons of Lent and Easter 2018.

You are invited to come to our Lenten Soup and Study Series for three Tuesday evenings during Lent — February 20th, February 27th and March 6th, starting at 6:30 p.m.  We’ll share a simple supper, soup and bread, and  have conversations about what it means to describe ourselves as a progressive community of faith.  Each evening will be independent, so please join us when it works for your schedule or plan to be with us each week.  Please sign up so we can make appropriate arrangements.

The next meeting of the Parkdale Book Club will be Saturday, March 10th, from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m.  Our March book is My Grandmother Sends Her Regards and Apologises by Fredrik Backman.  You are welcome to join us for the discussion even if you haven’t read the book.  Read more about our January Book Club discussion and the reading list for the remainder of the 2017-2018 season in the January 2018 Parkdale Book Club Newsletter.

Weekly Spiritual Reflection

Each week, we send out a “Spiritual Reflection” to individuals who are on our email mailing list.  We send along a blessing with these reflections, hoping that the quotes and photographs will bring you peace, joy or encouragement for the week. If you would like to receive our weekly Spiritual Reflections, please contact the church to have your name added to our mailing list.   Click here for the February 18th Spiritual Reflection.  We invite you to view a gallery of some of our past Spiritual Reflections.
