Faith Nurture
(Site Under Construction)

"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.
And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
- Matthew 28:19-20

Adult Faith Nurture
How many times have you heard someone muse that Sunday School was the last opportunity they had to consider their faith? Anglicans encourage commitment to learning and growing if faith as a Christian as a life-long joy. For Anglicans, liturgy is the principal way that we learn together about prayer, sacramental life, scripture and a life of faith lived in community. But Christ Church encourages the community to use the gifts of reason, scripture and experience to foster faith life-long, and thus to live it. A variety of events and study opportunities take place each year to engage in continued education for adults.

Advent and Lent, as seasons of preparation for the two most important feasts of the Christian year, are favourite times for series and sessions. But bible study, education events, preaching series, guest speakers, educational programs and book studies are all a regular part of our parish life.

For example, we support a regular meeting of "EFM", or Education for Ministry. More about this and other programs will be posted in due course.

Parish Library
The parish library is a large collection of books and periodicals that we received into our care from the Diocesan Archive. This collection is readily available for your benefit and enjoyment in the Crump room every day. We also have a large collection of music CD's and translations of scripture available.

Prayer resources are developed seasonally, with assigned daily readings for the comprehensive reading of holy scripture.
