BECAUSE OF THE WET WEATHER, THE SERVICE WILL BE HELD AT WEST POINT GREY UNITED CHURCH - 8TH AND TOLMIE.
Each year, the churches in the West Point Grey area gather together to celebrate worship during the WPG Fiesta Days. If the weather is fine, we meet in the lovely outdoor location of Trimble Park, welcoming friends from the various churches and our neighbours in the community. This year, our theme is Welcoming The Stranger, with a focus on refugees. Some of the new to Canada Syrian families will be present. And the service will be in English and Mandarin.
The Rev. Dr. Richard Topping, Principal of the Vancouver School of Theology, will be our guest preacher for the service. In his bio, he describes himself as loving the church and experiencing it as agent of God’s love and mercy in his own life and in the world.The scripture for the day is Acts 10: 34-43 and the title of his talk will be “Open to Everyone”
A great time to see old friends and meet new ones!
