Opportunity for Ministry: Open Church

Do you have the gift of welcome and hospitality? Love a quiet and peaceful church for a couple of hours? Then we have a wonderful ministry for you!

The nave of our beautiful church has traditionally been locked six days of the week. As part of our recent visioning exercise, we want to make it more accessible for prayer and reflection. As a pilot, we would like to open the church for two hours over the noon hour on Fridays.

We are looking for some of our people to be present during these Fridays, working in twos or threes, to welcome visitors, answer questions and be a warm and welcoming presence.

Please speak to Walter Blackwell (416-964-1462) for more information.

The Story behind our

Tracking Organ

Our magnificent three manual, tracker-action organ was installed in the chancel of the church in the spring of 1982 and dedicated to the Glory of God and in memory of those who died in the First World War and the Second World War.

The organ, built by the Karl Wilhelm Company of Mont St. Hilaire, Quebec, has a classical continental design. The case is made of white oak and the pipe shades are of carved butternut. Voiced in the classic French style, its 36 stops and 50 ranks are capable of interpreting a wide variety of organ literature.

Installation required considerable changes to the chancel including moving the altar forward and arranging choir seating to either side. These renovations prompted the design and production of our award-winning Benedicite Kneelers, done in needlepoint by a dedicated group of church members.
