Connecting the Heart with the Head... a Lenten Journey

Connecting the Heart with the Head is a refreshing four-week online Lenten dialogue that will explore the deepening of our faith by reaffirming or reconnecting our hearts with our heads. 


Beginning on Wednesday evening, March 3rd at 7:00pm, we invite you to join the Rev Wayne Parsons via an online Webex video call.  For 45 minutes each Wednesday evening for four consecutive weeks, in a COVID safe environment, we will discuss a topic of interest.


To sign-up for this online series, simply send your email, in confidence, to External link opens in new tab or windowrev.wayneparsons@nf.sympatico.ca.  Prior to our first session, you will receive a link or instructions to download the Webex app which is required to connect to this videoconference series.


We look very forward to journeying with you during our Lenten season.

Our Alongsider's Team would like to make their current monthly prayer services available to you simply by External link opens in new tab or windowclicking here.


Alongsiders are members of our Parish who, due to circumstances of sickness, mobility, age, etc., can not physically attend a worship service at our Church.  However, they still want to be part of the worship, and where possible, to help from home.  The Alongsiders program accomplishes this.  Each month, a service for each Sunday is prayerfully put together, similar to the in-Church service, and is then delivered to each Parishioner as part of a home visit.  A vital part of our ministry is ‘praying alongside’ our brothers and sisters in Christ.  Currently we have 14 members in the Parish of All Saints.
