Exciting Times

CHANGE OF SERVICE LOCATION:

Due to an insurance claim and the repair needed inside of the nave of the church, our construction company has asked for unfettered access to the nave. Therefore, we are required to close the church for three months.

ALL SAINTS CHURCH WILL BE CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS FROM MONDAY, APRIL 22 TO SUNDAY, AUGUST 4, 2019.

During that time, we have been invited to join and worship with the Parish of St. Luke’s congregation at 130 Nassau Street North, phone number 204-452-3609.

OUR FIRST SERVICES AT ST. LUKE’S WILL BEGIN ON SUNDAY, APRIL 28.

There will be a slight shift in our worship times as guests in a new space:

SUNDAYS AT 8:30 A.M. (SAID EUCHARIST) AND 10:30 A.M. (SUNG EUCHARIST)

MIDWEEK SERVICES WILL TAKE PLACE AT 12:10 P.M. 

Please read the January 2019 Saints Alive for more detailed information. Also, feel free to contact All Saints Church at 204-786-4675.

Flag reinstallation

After having scaffolding up to the ceiling for the past couple of months, preparation to paint ensues.

Meanwhile, how nice to see that the flags the colours flying again!

Out with the old; in with the new!

The weather warms around us; grass, trees, flowers and other green things blossom with the joy of new life. Migratory birds return, and the songs of the various creatures waking up from a long winter’s sleep fill the air.

Change….and growth.

Likewise, within the church, workers high up in the scaffolding with their tools, ring among the rafters. Renovations progress in a timely fashion.

Meanwhile, outside the church, beneath the shining sun and brilliant blue sky, repairs on the roof have begun. The roofing team has removed the old shingles from the roof. After that, new and more durable shingles take their place!

Check out the photo journal of the metamorphosis here!

Renovations Have Begun!

More photos added!

The transition from our church home began on Sunday, April 28, and we have become welcomed guests in the home of another. It will be good to keep up on the metamorphosis that will be happening in and around the All Saints’ while we’re at St. Luke’s.

As things change over the next few months, we will take a photo journey. Photos will be added on a weekly to bi-weekly basis with additional photos added as the changes occur, so stay tuned!
