10:30 a.m. with luncheon to follow
St. Andrew’s United Church
Registration required – Cost $18

You are invited to our June meeting on Tuesday, June 25, 2024, which includes lunch! We will be gathering once again at St. Andrew’s United Church, located at 117 Bloor St. East, in Downtown Toronto. (MAP). 

Arrival time is 10:00 a.m.  Worship commences at 10:30 a.m.  The catered lunch begins at the noon hour.  Your contribution for your meal is $18.00.  The Pastoral Relations Commission of SWRC supports the cost of the meal with a generous subsidy.  Thank you to the Commission and thank you to you for committing to attend this gathering of the Retirees and Pensioners. 

If you are using TTC, get off at Yonge Street, walk east on the south side of Bloor Street, not too far to find the walkway to the church.  Or use the drop off and underground parking available off Hayden Street.  Once inside, please proceed to Westminster Hall on the ground floor level.

The theme of the meeting is “Our Experience of Engaging in Ministry.”  The location of that engagement could have been in United Church congregations, or in missions such as social service outreach agencies, or in hospital or prison or armed forces chaplaincies, or in teaching ministries, or denominational administration, or more!

In a panel format three individuals will describe their experiences.  Then, in small groups there will be an opportunity to share highlights from your service of offering leadership in God’s Church and World.  The idea is to share amongst ourselves – one meeting a year – in the confidence that the storytelling will be a blessing.  The process includes the possibility of “passing” if you choose not to share.  You are welcome, on the other hand, to prepare your reflection on what you might say.

Our menu is still being finalized, but if you have dietary concerns, let us know and we will pass that info on to our caterers. Cost $18.00 per person and registration is required. If your partner is joining you, please fill out a separate registration form and payment for each person attending.

Deadline for registration is June 12, 2024. 

Thank you for your interest, registration for this event is now closed. We hope you can join us next time!
