Journeying together in Christ

Updated: November 25, 2021

Here is what is happening this weekend and the week ahead at St. James.

Proof of full vaccination against Covid-19 is required at all in person services and events.  You only have to show proof once.

Starting this Sunday masks can be removed by readers at the lectern and preachers in the pulpit.  Such people need to be 4 meters away from any other person.  Masks will be worn for all singing as well as the priest celebrating at the altar.  

At the 11am service we will be singing (with masks on).  For our first Sunday we will just be singing one hymn, one praise song and some service music.  This is to allow our musicians and tech crew to figure out the best way to stream it.  The following Sunday we will return to 2 hymns, 2 praise songs and full service music. 

Sunday November 28 – First Sunday of Advent

Children’s Church will meet by Zoom at 9:30am. 
Details will be emailed to parents/guardians.  

We will be having in person worship at 9am and 11am.  I will preach at both services.  The Rev. Dr. Bill Morrow will celebrate.  The Milkon family will light the first Advent Candle of the season.   We have limited spaces at services to allow for physical distancing.  Masks are required for all people over 2 at the service. Please RSVP to the office for in person worship.

We will be offering at 9am, Book of Common Prayer Holy Communion and at 11am, Book of Alternative Services Holy Eucharist with music.  The 11am service will be live streamed on our YouTube Channel.

The Gathering meets in the parish hall at 5:30pm for worship and dinner.
