The Choir has officially released their CD, “A Gift of Song”, in celebration of next year’s 200th Anniversary of the congregation. If you are interested in obtaining a copy of the CD, please speak to a member of the choir. A donation towards the expense of making the CD would be most welcome.
For those who are interested, copies of the national church’s newspaper, Presbyterian Connection, are available at the back of the church.
At the end of last year the “Presbyterian Record” ceased to publish. In its place the National Church will be printing a “newspaper” four times a year; this will be print only. If you are interested in receiving the newspaper you may subscribe for it yourself on the National Church’s website (www.presbyterian.ca).
So far this year we have raised $7454 of the $8000 we committed ourselves to giving to Presbyterians Sharing. At this point last year we had raised $5622.
