  1. Canada Day weekend as a settler institution – I invite you to look for celebrations that mark the day with a recognition of the journey of truth and reconciliation with the first peoples of turtle island.
  2. We will celebrate communion this Sunday.
  3. The Church Council invites you to an information and discussion session following worship on Sunday July 9th on adjustments to our mission and ministry. This is the next step in this adjustment process. It follows up on the consultation we did with Rev. Richard Bott in April and May.

Meeting length 30 minutes to 45 minutes. Attendance either in person or in the Zoom room.
  5. Dr. Bob was noticed at the community consultation on encampments held at the Convention Centre on Tuesday evening posing a very helpful question to the City staff. Participants in the rally held before the consultation at the entrance to the convention centre convened at 24 Main W for a debriefing after the meeting. Those rallying were those living without housing in encampments and elsewhere and their supporters.
  6. The 2023 Soutar Award winner, Heather Morgan, will join us on Sunday July 23 to be presented with the Soutar Award and to break open the Word with us.
  7. The Soutar Award is an award Centenary, and now, New Vision, has awarded each year a Sanford Gold Medal has been awarded at Emmanuel College in Toronto since 1983. 2023 is the award’s 40th anniversary.

  9. We continue our current in-person gathering approach: i) we will form the circle again in the lower hall, distancing the seats by a metre for the time being. ii) people may join the circle if they are willing to wear a mask.
  10. The reason for the masks is that we will allow ourselves to sing, and masking reduces the distance air we expel travels with the increased effort singing.

  1. Acclaimed Muskoka-based singer/songwriter Emma Cook closes out her current Ontario tour with a Hamilton matinee show (4 pm) at The Music Hall at New Vision United Church on June 25. Expect material from her latest album, Fight Left In Me, produced by Andrew Rasmussen (Carly Rae Jepsen, Wake Owl, Hannah Georgas). Cook has released five albums, reached the finals of the CBC Searchlight competition, and performed internationally. This show, in the venue’s intimate South West Lounge, is highly recommended. Tix here.
  2. Emma Cook’s show is an entrepreneurial-based project between the Music Hall project and Emma. The two came together on a show-creating web platform called Side Door Access. This platform has the potential to increase accessibility for artists and for spaces not typically used by the organized music sector. Your support for this trial run will be appreciated by the Music Hall project. If you can’t come, but know anyone who enjoys shows by singer/songwriters, please pass this invitation along.
  3. The Church Council invites you to an information and discussion session following worship on July 9th on adjustments to our mission and ministry. This is the next step in this adjustment process. It follows up on the consultation we did with Rev. Richard Bott in April and May.
  4. The Church Council asked me to share with you their delight with the news they received this past week that two participants in New Vision have been appointed to positions in the national body of the United Church. Jen Hompoth is joining the Anti-Racism Common Table, and Rev. Miriam Spies has been appointed coordinator of worship for the 45th General Council. At some point soon the Council will profile both the positions and what moved Jen and Miriam to accept these important roles. Thank you both!
  5. The 2023 Soutar Award winner, Heather Morgan, will join us on Sunday July 23 to be presented with the Soutar Award and to break open the Word with us.
  6. The Soutar Award is an award Centenary, and now, New Vision, has awarded each year a Sanford Gold Medal has been awarded at Emmanuel College in Toronto since 1983. 2023 is the award’s 40th anniversary. How blessed we have been over the years to have annually recognized and annually heard from the Sanford medalist.

  1. The Indigenous Day of Prayer is this Sunday, the Sunday before National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21. We will take the opportunity tomorrow to celebrate and honour in prayer First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. It is also the Sunday closest to our inaugural day as a congregation June 20, 2014, and Father’s Day. We will be celebrating communion.
  2. Helping the Music Hall get off the ground – consider purchasing tickets and coming to an intimate afternoon performance on Sunday, June 25 at 4 pm  in the Southwest Lounge (in the MacNab addition) given by award winning Indie Folk singer/songwriter Emma Cook. Tickets are a very reasonable $12 or anything more you can afford. For tickets, follow this link. For more about Emma, follow this one. WardIV café and bar is providing bar service. This is a developmental show where the Music Hall figures some things out. You can help the process by helping the Music Hall avoid cancelling the show due to insufficient audience size. We are aiming for 30 tickets.  Hope to see you there!
  3. This evening: Tottering Bi-Ped Theatre presents “Hearing ‘Portraits at an Exhibition’” in our Lower Hall as part of Hamilton Arts Week. FREE at 8 pm. From Tottering Bi-Ped:  “Mimi Han and Trevor Copp have a challenge: you may listen to Classical music, but do you actually hear it? How many minutes at the Symphony pass before you are thinking about your to-do list at home, or wondering about dinner? We know this is incredible music, but what can we do to actually keep our heads into the sound? Drawing from their opposing experiences with Music, Mimi and Trevor conduct a series of experiments to provoke new ways of hearing. Working with Mussorgsky’s ‘Portraits at an Exhibition,’ we will move, smell, see, and feel our way through the music to see if we can find a deeper experience of listening to music.”
  4. A letter Pippa sent to the Spec celebrating A la Mode’s delightful “In the Key of RRR!” concert in the Music Hall at the beginning of June was published this past week.
