New Vision Notes Thur July 6 2023

Thur July 6 2023

  1. The Church Council invites you to an information and discussion session following worship this 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.
  2. Topics this Sunday include the Trustees’ approach to obtaining a revenue from our surplus space, report on the Called to be the Church stewardship campaign, and introduction to recommendations from Rev Bott’s consultation report. Meeting length 30 minutes to 45 minutes. Attendance either in person or in the Zoom room.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. The World Health Organization has determined that the COVID-19 pandemic has ended. We thus now no longer ask people to mask to be part of our worship gathering, however, very much know that we remain mask friendly!
  6. New Vision Virtual Worship is experiential, participatory, image-rich and collective, just like worship in-person at New Vision! Join us either way on Sunday mornings 10:30 am. You can join week to week on Zoom by clicking here. If you want to put the link someplace easy to find each week, here it is:

I look forward to seeing you Sunday again, or for the first time –

Rev Ian
