Trinity St Andrew’s United Church in Brighton is inviting you on a special pilgrimage. From now until Indigenous day of prayer, June 21, we are trekking across Canada together, and learning about the people through whose traditional territory we will be walking.
Will you join us?
All you do is email Pamela at email@example.com and let her know how many kilometres you have walked from Monday to Sunday, or how many minutes of other types of exercise you have engaged. Every Monday we tally our efforts to discover how far we have walked collectively from St John’s to Victoria, stopping at each capital city along the way. Then Wednesday of each week we will publish an update on our journey, with interviews, links, and video introducing us to the indigenous communities on our path.
Why are we doing this? Two main reasons, although you may have your own reasons for joining. 1) we all need an incentive to move our bodies and stay healthy during lockdown and stay-at-home orders. And just as important, 2) we want to learn, build relations, see our country through a different lens.
Will you join us?
Email Pamela, let her know you are interested, and keep track of your exercise. Then watch for our weekly email introducing us all to the rich traditions, culture and peoples who have lived on this land since time immemorial.
Join us for Taize, second Tuesday of each month, 7pm by zoom. Contact the church office for the link. firstname.lastname@example.org
Taize is characterized by the repetitive singing of simple harmonized tunes, interspersed with readings, prayers, and periods of silence. Here is a sample of how the service may look.
On-line Yoga, tailored to YOU!
God calls us to take care of our bodies, to be strong in honouring the gift of life we have from our Creator (I Corinthians 6, 9, Proverbs, Isaiah, etc etc)
As we continue and maybe even deepen restrictions in Ontario, TSA is hoping to offer you a chance to move and strengthen your body, in a way that grounds your soul and brings you closer to truth and love. For real!
Our wonderful musician Sandra Candeloro is also a certified yoga instructor, and she is willing to teach yoga classes, once a month for now, on Zoom. Have you been looking for a personal, in home way to engage your body in mindfulness and worship? Please let us know. Classes will be adaptable for all levels of experience, flexibility and strength.
We will hold the classes if there is enough interest. We are suggesting a donation of $10 per class, and a commitment to participate in four sessions (January to April inclusive). Classes will be the fourth Tuesday night at 7:00, eventually moving to live classes in our church hall, when public health regulations allow.
Please let us know if you would like to be part of this new initiative!
Any proceeds above and beyond expenses will be donated to support the migrant worker outreach of our church.
Please contact Pamela in the office to register. email@example.com or 613-475-1311. Once payment has been received, you will be sent the Zoom link for yoga.
