Beyond the walls of our church, we have smaller worship groups that meet regularly to reflect on various topics. Please see below to learn about our current worship groups.
Bible Mondays with
Rev. Woods resumes
Mondays at noon
Parlour, MacKay United Church
Join Peter for a lectionary-based study of scripture readings. Coffee/Tea is on. Bring your lunch. A one-page weekly resource will be provided to guide the conversations. All are welcome. Copies of the reading can be found on the Vestry table or from the Office.
Music and Meditation
First Tues of the month
Tuesdays at 7 pm
MacKay United Church
Mitchell Wright (piano) and Peter Woods (saxophone) invite people into the beautiful acoustic space of the Church for meditation in the midst of music. This one hour event happens in our sanctuary from 7-8 pm. A candle is lit. People are welcomed to meditate as the music fills the space. The time is rooted in a deep trust that Holy Mystery is best revealed in the bold choice to stop the chatter and let other forms of communication frame our meditative moments. You are only asked to come and be present.
The Breakfast Club
First Wednesday of the Month at 8 am
Fontenelle Restaurant 55 Montreal Rd.
The Breakfast Club is a monthly casual gathering for conversation and…. breakfast. Peter circulates a short article (3-5 pages) ahead of time as a focus for thought and conversation. We gather at 8 am at Fontenelle Restaurant on Montreal Road and we are finished by 9 am. Drop by if you can. Check the bulletin and on the Vestry table to find the monthly reading.
