The week Lent Begins

Tonight (Tuesday) 6:00PM  is our traditional Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper.   We are planning for 60,  we have 30 that have officially signed up so we have lots of room to bring friends.

After Supper and cleanup,  those who wish will take some time for worship and have a look at the “Bells” material, particularly around “Blessing”

Wednesday morning will be a 10:30 service with the imposition of Ashes.



In the book of Nehemiah chapters 8 and 9 we learn how the word of God was read out loud to the people.

What was the response? “The people started crying when God’s law was read to them.” 8:9 and “For three hours they stood and listened to the Law of the LORD their God, and then for the next three hours they confessed their sins and worshipped the LORD.” 9:3

Proclamation is the reading aloud of the entire Bible over a ten day period, sponsored by the Canadian Bible Society and local churches. Proclamation will take place at Full Gospel Assembly, 34 Mount Pleasant Ave. East, Saint John. Readings will begin daily at 7am and finish at 9pm , Wednesday, May 24 to Friday, June 2. Sunday, May 28 readings will begin at 1pm and finish at 8pm. We are inviting churches to advertise Proclamation with the invitation for people to read during the ten days. People can read in the translation and language of their choice. Folks are encouraged to make appointments for when they want to read and passages will be assigned. Register to read : 633-4956 Ext.2 or sign up online at

Thank you to those who have advertised Proclamation. Would you please take a couple of minutes to e-mail, face book or send a message on Twitter to people in your congregation about Proclamation? You could send the previous paragraph.
Invite them to visit the website and register to read. They can check out what scriptures are scheduled for which days and times. There are small/home groups that are going to read together.
Some passages are shorter than others, particularly Psalms. Two people could tag team a longer passage.
There is no commentary, no sermon, simply the reading of the Bible.

If you have a prayer meeting or prayer chain in your church, would you please ask folks to ask the Lord to speak through Proclamation? Pray that the Holy Spirit will use this act of faith to achieve the Lord’s purpose.

Sincerely in Christ,
Edward Powell, for Chapter 17


Valentines Tea Postponed till 21st

We though it wise to postpone our event until next week. We have more snow coming this afternoon and the church still isn’t even plowed out. All the goodies got frozen on Sunday so we will be good to go. So now we have a bit more time to invite a few people.

Seniors Tea Feb 21st at 2:00pm A pharmacist will give a short talk and be available to answer your questions.

Funeral Arrangements for Gregory Fudge

Fudge, Gregory J. F.- It is with broken hearts and profound sadness, the family of Gregory James Frederick Fudge, of Quispamsis, announce his passing on Saturday, December 31, 2016 at the Saint John Regional Hospital.

Born in Saint John, on January 19, 1994, he was a son of Jim and Lisa (Mullett) Fudge. Greg was a graduate of KVHS and the Electrical Program at NBCC, he was employed at Shopper’s Drug Mart at the age of 15 before starting his career at FCC as an Electrician. He enjoyed fishing, golfing, hunting, country concerts, his Toyota truck, plaid flannels, and loved the ladies. Greg enjoyed every social gathering and was the life of the party, but most of all being with his family and friends.

It is time to mark your Calendars!

The last days of our summer are upon us and it is time to make plans for the fall season. Here are some tentative dates and activities. If these fall in conflict with other events that you know about please let me know so we can change them if prudent.

Meeting with the Bishop on September 8th. This is to discuss the decision of General Synod to change the Canon on Marriage. I believe as does our Bishop that the Synod has made a serious mistake here. The question is, what do we do about it? Come and let’s sit down and have a conversation. 7:00 in the Church for All

Annual Parish Prayer walk Sept 25th (Bridgetown service at 9:30) and Corn boil on the Rectory Lawn. We have done this several times now and always with real results (Renforth Wharf Days, Health Wellness and Safety ministry to Seniors) We will combine this with Bridgetown at 9:30 and follow it up with a Corn-boil on the lawn to discuss our impressions from God after our time of prayer. We will have a short service at 10:30 and then be sent out to pray.

Feast of Francis of Assisi October 4th CBZ. As you know by now things have changed at the Zoo. Largly because of the ministry of Prayer. Last year a small group of us went on this day and sang to the staff and animals as we toured the zoo. The tiger was particularly impacted by the worship songs. Come and join us this year as we bless God’s creation. Time TBA

Alpha Film Series will begin Sunday Evening October 9th. The new Alpha Film series is completed and we will be running it from the Rectory once again. If we have more than 10 sign up we will either split the venue/night or hold it at the Church. Sign up and or invite someone. Watch for my social media boots regarding this.
