The imposition of ashes reminds us of our mortality, “remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return.” It is also a powerful and stark reminder that we are more than dust, and not only is Easter a promise of a future new life, it is new life to be awakened to now.

For more information on automatic deposit, please talk to any of the financial team: Deanna Spicer, Lynn Clarke, Winston Bishop, or Father Gerald.

    The Lord Jesus calls us to be a welcoming and Spirit-filled community. As we gather from Sunday to Sunday, and throughout the week, please make the opportunity to greet and love those whom you don’t YET know.

    The HOUSE for the CHURCH
    A number of years ago as our parish was continuing the process of re-creating our dying 4 point parish into one vibrant new community, and we began the process of selling our buildings, we were accused of selling the “church.” You cannot sell the church, because the church is the people of God. Therefore we were intentional on not calling any part of the new building a “church.” We wanted a “Home”where the church would gather for a common life, prayer and service to others.

    “The “Church,” the ecclesia, is the people of God. When St.Paul in his New Testament letters refers to the Church, he is not referring to any building (for there was no “church building”, people gathered in houses for eucharist and fellowship), he is referring to Christian people in a particular local.

    With this theological teaching in mind, the Parish of the Resurrection - in a time of liturgical and spiritual renewal - continues to build the Church (as is our call in every generation), edifying and calling into deepening maturity the people of God who father in this parish. In this process of building up the Church, we do need to “house” the church. This is what the “New House for the Church” building project was all about. Putting a roof over the Church in our parish. A House that enables us to continue to proclaim and live the unchanging truth of Christ, yet enable us to do so in an ever changing society.

    To honour and respect the exciting and transformative journey that this church family has been on, let us refrain from referring to the building as the “church.” We the people are the church, and the church gathers in its house to pray, to love and to serve.

    Pilgrim

    A new Christian education program that will be offered this fall: Pilgrim

    Pilgrim is a major new teaching and discipleship resource from the Church of England. It aims to help every local church create a place where people can explore the Christian faith together and see how it can be lived out each day.

    Pilgrim takes a different approach to other Christian programmes. It approaches the great issues of faith not through persuasion, but participation in a pattern of contemplation and discussion with a group of fellow travellers.

    Pilgrim is comprised of two stages: the Follow stage for those very new to faith, and the Grow stage for those who want to go further. Each stage contains four short six-session courses which focus on a major theme of Christian life.

    Pilgrim assumes very little understanding or knowledge of the Christian faith.

    It focuses on Jesus Christ

    Pilgrim aims to equip people to follow Jesus Christ as disciples in the whole of their lives.

    It flows from the Scriptures

    The primary focus of each session is a group of people engaging with the Bible together.

    It draws deeply from the Christian tradition

    In the Early Church, the Christian faith was taught by the transmission of key texts which summed up the heart of the Christian message. Pilgrim restores this approach for the twenty-first century.

    It honours the Anglican way and its many streams

    Pilgrim has been developed as a specifically Anglican resource which aims to cater for every tradition in the Church of England.
