A Tour of the Interior of St. Thomas’ Anglican Church

Belleville

Doors Open Ontario 

Once again St Thomas' is pleased to welcome the public on September 21 from 10am to 4pm as part of Open Doors Belleville. Greeters will be on hand to welcome you at the door throughout the day.

The Parish of St. Thomas was established in Belleville in 1818 when the first church was consecrated by Charles Stewart, the second Lord Bishop of Quebec. The first St. Thomas' Church was a brick structure completed in the 1820s. It is now a traditional Norman-style church, joined to a modern, glass-enveloped Parish Centre. 

More information is available in a recently published booklet which was researched, compiled, and edited by Rev. John Uttley, Rev. Brad Beale, and Elizabeth Mitchell, for the “Doors Open” tour of the church in September 2018.  read more

Single use plastics

At the last meeting of parish council on May 9, consideration was given to a recommendation by the kitchen management committee to eliminate, where possible, the use of single use plastics within the church.  This includes products such as plastic straws, Styrofoam cups, certain food containers etc. This initiative was endorsed by council but not to the extent of a total ban. 
Seeking a "greener" environment is not new nor is the concept of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Work has been done in this area for years at St. Thomas' and this is but one more prime example.
What can you do to help reduce or eliminate green house gases and ocean plastics? 
Perhaps reading this article will inspire you in some way.
 
Another small step involves the recycling of certain tea bags as compostable waste. Because many of these products contain plastic there is now a new practise for kitchen users:
         "Until we find a brand that does not contain plastic please do not put tea bags in the compost". Attached is a link to an article that you may find informative.
 
 
Raffle tickets on a beautifully handcrafted quilt were a popular item with the draw taking place at 2:00pm on Saturday May 4th.   The raffle was won by Diane Sackfield of Kingston and the winning ticket was sold by Nancy Patterson-Wickson.

KITCHEN USER EDUCATION

 Please stay current with proper kitchen safety and practices.

The Kitchen Manual can be found as a download in the Resource section of this website. This should be read periodically by all users to keep updated. Any questions should be directed to the church kitchen management team. This is important for insurance purposes.

Education sessions for those requiring supervisor training or those wishing an update will be held as needed. Please give your name to the office and the Kitchen Team will get back to you with the time of the next session. The education only takes about half an hour, but it’s a vital part of our compliance with local health and safety regulations, now that we have been approved to cook and serve food to the general public.

Register for training through the office by phoning 613 962-3636 or emailing office@stthomasbelleville.ca.
