Find your place at St. John’s
St. John’s York Mills church is a lively place on Sunday mornings, with a range of offerings for a community of people at all points in their faith journeys.
9:00 to 10:00 a.m. – The Sacred Table
This service is our weekly community celebration of the Holy Eucharist. The service is deeply rooted in our Anglican Eucharistic Tradition with hymn singing, scripture readings, a homily, and of course the holy communion.
Throughout the year, we explore different expressions of the Anglican Eucharist, always grounded in the Book of Alternative Services.
10:00 to 10:30 – Coffee and Conversation
This is a time to socialize and enjoy some light refreshments. Catch up on what’s happening with old friends, get to know some fresh faces, or simply relax and watch the morning go by.
10:30 to 11:30 a.m. – The Open Door
Every Sunday we gather at 10:30 a.m. to listen to uplifting music, pray and open the Word of God together. This hour-long service is intended to focus on the Word of God and is designed both for the person just embarking on their journey of Christian faith as well as someone who is well along the path.
Children are welcome to attend our Children’s Ministry. There they take part in music and crafts, and in reading and exploring stories from the Bible. For parents with very young children we have a nursery room as well as a family room at the back of the sanctuary.
11:30 a.m. to Noon – The Forum
Designed as a complement to The Open Door, The Forum is the place where you can explore deep questions about faith. You can ask a question in person or, if you prefer, Tweet a question to our Twitter account (@sjymforum). The preacher from that morning’s Open Door gathering will be at the front to answer questions and discuss opinions.
Full disclosure: we don’t pretend to have all of the answers. We will tell you what we believe the gospel message is saying about the topics that are raised. This truly is about walking a faith journey together. Come, challenge and be challenged. It will help all of us grow.
