New Vision Notes Wed July 21 2021

Wed July 21 2021

  1. Our Holton campus property redevelopment partner United Property Resource Corporation is bringing an ice-cream truck to our Holton campus parking lot on Saturday, August 14 from 1-3 pm to do some friendly neighbourhood engagement over the three options under study at the moment and for us to reintroduce ourselves to our neighbours and share with them who we are now and what we are doing on our MacNab campus and get to know them. I hope you can come!
  2. The African Caribbean Canadian Association celebrates Emancipation Day on Sunday August 1 at 2 pm.  Please register via this link or visit us at
  3. Please feel free to join us in-person on our MacNab campus (24 Main W) for our Sunday morning worship now. We have determined that under the Step 3 rules we can have up to 25 people in-person at our worship gatherings now. Martine joined us at the piano this last Sunday. If you feel ready to venture out to join the 10 or so who were able to be together in-person last Sunday, please come join us. We will be following all the prescribed protocols for Step 3, including no congregational singing, hand-washing, face-masks, 2 metre physical distancing and screening questions on arrival.
  4. We are able to hold a social time after the worship gathering. We plan to have cookies and cold drinks this Sunday.
  5. Entrance will be through the Youth Centre entrance on MacNab Street. If you have any symptoms of illness, please plan not to attend in person on Sunday morning.
  6. If you have not yet been vaccinated, or have yet to get your second vaccination, please consider doing so. Vaccination has clear health benefits for us all as part of the community. It will make attendance at in-person gatherings more safe for all in attendance.
  7. New Vision Virtual Worship is experiential, participatory, image-rich and collective, just like worship in person at New Vision! Join us on Sunday mornings 10:30 am week to week during the Covid-19 emergency by clicking here. If you want to put the link someplace easy to find each week, here it is: Please share it with others and invite them to a “different” kind of time on Zoom from the usual.
  8. You can also call in to the gathering on the telephone toll free. Call 1 855 703 8985, then, when prompted, input the Meeting ID 782 292 511 followed by the # sign. Ignore the prompts for Participant ID and Password. You are in when the recorded voice says, “You are in the meeting.” If you can only connect by video on your computer with no audio, you can use the phone connection for audio and the computer connection for visual.

Hope to see you Sunday ~ again, or for the first time ~

Rev Ian
