Everyone and anyone is welcome. It is a relaxed and conversational environment, centered on the readings for the upcoming Sunday each week. People are welcome to ‘pop in’ or ‘pop out’ at their convenience.

Christmas Sharing Program 2022
The Christmas Season will soon be here and once again the congregation of St. Thomas’ will be participating in the Christmas Sharing Program. 45 Families will have food and gifts for children delivered the week before Christmas through your generosity. Information on opportunities to help with these deliveries will be available early December.
For the past couple of years, the congregation has been asked to make monetary donations to this outreach program through their church offerings. This method has been successful and will be used again. By purchasing sales and bulk items we have been able to get better value for our money. Gifts for the children will also continue in this same method.
We ask that you consider making a donation in the near future. The cost of supplying food for this program has risen and we hope you will be able to give to the best of your ability.
Thank you for participating in this wonderful Outreach Program.

This note, printed on silk, provides an opportunity to examine the establishment of the parish of St. Thomas' and provide insight into church history and discussion around heritage preservation within the Anglican Diocese of Ontario.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
