Men's Discussion Meeting - For the past year the congregation has been discovering and engaging with the practise of hearing all voices in our worship services. The eldership has found the past year encouraging, formative and hopeful as we heard the voices of all ages, genders and demographics in our congregational worship.

The Elders and Ministry staff would like to hear from each member regarding their perspective on this year of discovery.  What have you enjoyed?  What has been uplifting?  What have you found to be a challenge?

Please join us for an in-person evening of listening, sharing and reflection at 3 pm on February 5th.
