Service & Picnic on Sunday, June 21, 2015 @ 11:00 AM in Area 26 in High Park (directions below)

NO SERVICE AT THE CHURCH (open for drop in breakfast 8 to 9 AM)

Join us at High Park and invite others! We will bring our hearing assist devices to connect to the portable PA.

Today the worship service is led by Holy Trinity’s band Fallen Angles in a pop vein. We strive for an integrated experience that affects everyone who comes. This month our theme is “Unsettling the Settler” which will continue to explore our relationship with the First Peoples of this land in light of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the Anglican Church #22Days campaign. June 21 is National Aboriginal Day.

Picnic: The parishes of San Esteban and St. Paul’s will be joining us. Between the three communities the barbeques & propane, beverages, hamburgers & veggie burgers will be provided.

Please bring a picnic side dish to share with a serving utensil. Plates, napkins, & cutlery will be provided. You may want to bring a folding chair or blanket to sit on.

Picnic Games will be played if we have enough (8 to 12 people would be nice) to play: three legged race, sack race, sponge toss, etc. Please bring the young and young-at-heart ready to participate in games!
Come ready for a good time and please dress for the weather. There is a covered shelter and we hope to go on regardless of weather.
