Church Services


In response to requests made to all churches by the Provincial government, our church has suspended on-site services for the time being.

We hope to reopen soon. Please check here for future updates.


For the time being, we will be holding our Sunday morning services and Wednesday evening meetings as telephone conference calls.
 
(If you are a Zoom user, it is also possible to join these services using the Zoom app. If you would prefer to do that, please send an email here requesting access.)
 
These will be informal meetings.

As usual, the Sunday services will begin at 11:00 AM Eastern Time (UTC-4) and the Wednesday evening meetings at 7:30 PM.
If you would like to join us, simply call 647-374-4685 (or any of the numbers available at (International Dial-in Numbers) before the meetings start.
  • You will be asked to enter the Meeting ID. Just enter: 4069 7319 03, followed by the # key.
  • You will also be asked for a Participant ID "if you have one". You do NOT have one. So just press # again.
  • It is possible that you will be asked for a password. This should not happen, but it is a glitch that our supplier (Zoom) is experiencing occasionally. If this happens, simply hang up and dial in again.

Once you join the call you will be temporarily placed in the "waiting room" for a short period of time. Then you will be admitted into the meeting.

Everyone will be placed on Mute as they enter the meeting so that others cannot hear room sounds from your location.

If you suddenly hear a dial tone during the meeting you will know that you have been disconnected. If that happens, simply hang up and dial in again.
You will then be readmitted to the meeting.

If you hear unexpected silence during the meeting the source of the sound (the Reader?) may have inadvertantly become muted. Rest assured we are working to resolve the problem.
Wait a few moments and the sound should be restored.


On Wednesdays:

Everyone will be muted by the moderator when they enter the meeting.

As a courtesy to other participants, it would be helpful if you would remain muted until the testimony period, especially if you are in a noisy (sirens?, dog barking?) environment.

During the testimony period, you will need to unmmute yourself when you would like to share a testimony.

To unmute yourself:

  • If you are calling in by phone: Press *6 on your telephone keypad or
  • If you are linked in by computer: Click the microphone icon (labelled "Mute") in the lower left corner of your Zoom screen.
In addition, when you wish to give a testimony, please take your cell phone off "speaker mode".

To mute yourself again after you give your testimony:

  • If you are calling in by phone: Press *6 on your telephone keypad again
  • If you are linked in by computer: Click the microphone icon (labelled "Unmute") in the lower left corner of your Zoom screen.
(Thank you for your cooperation.)


After the postlude everyone can unmute themselves in order to greet one another.


"...Emerge gently..."
Our technical staff begs your patience and tolerance in advance. The technology is not 100% reliable and all of us (you too?) are still in learning mode.

Each Sunday morning, Christian Science churches around the world hold church services for their communities. The services are centered around a sermon comprised of a weekly Bible Lesson read from the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Sciptures by Mary Baker Eddy. If you join us, you will find singing, music, prayer and inspiration.

We have Sunday School classes for young people up to the age of 20, where teachers and students discuss ideas related to the Bible, the challenges of daily living and God's everpresent love for man.

On Wednesday evenings we hold testimony meetings where you will hear readings from the Bible and from Science and Health based on a theme of interest to our community. In addition, some of those present will tell of healings and insights they've experienced through prayer and their study of the Bible and their progress in understanding God.

Our church holds Sunday morning church services and Sunday school at 11:00AM and Wednesday evening testimony meetings on Wednesday evenings at 7:30PM. You are always welcome to join us.

On Thanksgiving Day in Canada (October 12th, 2020) we will hold a Thankgiving Service at 10:30AM.
