Vacation Bible School
We are hosting our 23rd VBS program from Monday, July 9 to Friday, July 13, 2018, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.The children, ages 4-11, will be learning about God’s love through Bible stories, games, crafts and service projects for the community. Young people, ages 12-18, are welcome to volunteer to be leaders for the camp. Together the children and youth will make new friendships, deepen their connection to God and experience the joy that comes from helping others. The cost was $30 for the first child and $20 each for siblings, with reduced fees for those who need it. To register your child print out the registration form and return to the Church Office by mail, or in person.

Peel Interfaith Peace Camp
In the summer of 2017, Jewish, Christian and Muslim children from Peel came together to learn about their shared Abrahamic heritage and celebrate being children of faith. We played, learned and made wonderful crafts. New friendships were formed and we learned about our shared commitment to help others.
We are happy to announce that we are again offering an interfaith peace camp in 2018, from Monday, July 23 to Thurdsay, July 26 for children going into Grades 2-6. Cost is $75/child. Registration is limited to 12 children from the Christian faith, so register your child quickly using the registration form and return to the Church Office by mail, or in person.
The camp runs out of the Adult Learning Centre near Square One and each day we visit a different faith center. On Thursday, July 26, our parish will host a dinner for all of the participants and their families.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Confirmation?
At various times during our lives we may feel a need to affirm publicly what we believe and to make a renewed commitment to live out our faith in our daily live. We welcome your inquiry into the meaning and practice of rites of affirmation in the Anglican Church.
In the Anglican Church we have three formal ways of affirming our faith; confirmation, reception, and reaffirmation.
