Presbyterian Connection Paper

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).
