Restoring Health: body, mind and spirit

Join Us For Worship

Leave a comment


So come, join us as we worship the triune God together. Here’s the announcement:

I’m happy to announce that we’re had Church@Church this Sunday. Last Sunday we looked at facing impossible challenges and the feeding of the 5,000. This week, we discovered what to do when facing impossible challenges. You never know when Jesus will turn up. Let’s be encouraged as we pay attention to what God is doing in our midst.

In case you missed it, you can find the service from last week by clicking HERE.

Important Dates:

1. This is the last week to return your Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. Bring your shoeboxes this Sunday for the last time.

2. Sunday the 20th November, the Reign of Christ Sunday (the last Sunday of the liturgical year), is a Healing Service. The Rev. Dr. Ed Hird will be preaching on the subject of healing. (Mark 8:22-26: Messy Healing: Why Does It Often Take Too Long?) There will be opportunities to receive healing prayer. Again, everyone is welcome.

3. Our next All Saints Community Lunch is after the service on November the 20th. Everyone welcome. (Please note that until our renovations are complete, we do not have facilities for either heating or cooling food.)

4. On the First Sunday of Advent (27th November) we begin a four week preaching series on the spiritual disciplines, this year titled “Spiritual Friendship.”

5. All Saints Christmas Party and Community Lunch: Sunday the 4th of December (after the service). Everyone welcome.

If you want to see our monthly church schedule, you can find that on our website, or by clicking HERE.

If you have any further questions, or need help in any way, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thank you Church.

Stay vigilant and prayerful.

Love each other deeply and keep Jesus at the very centre of everything you do.

Blessings on all you do.

The peace of our Lord,

Peter Klenner

I was the Rector of St. Simon's Church North Vancouver, B.C for 31 years, from 1987 to 2018. Ordained in 1980, I have also served at St. Philip's Vancouver and St. Matthew's Abbotsford. My wife Janice and I have three sons James, Mark, and Andrew. I was Past President and Chaplain for Alpha Canada. While serving as the National Chair for Anglican Renewal Ministries of Canada, I was one of three co-signers of the Montreal Declaration of Anglican Essentials For the past 31 years, I have been privileged to write over 500 articles as a columnist on spiritual issues for local North Vancouver newspapers. In the last number of years, I have had the opportunity to speak at conferences and retreats in Honduras, Rwanda, Uganda, Washington State, BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Newfoundland, and Ontario.
