Bible Study: The Holy Spirit throughout the Ages
Come and learn about the Holy Spirit through three stories of the working of the Spirit that continue to make an impact in our world today.
June 6th @ 7:30pm – The conversion of the Ethiopian Eunuch – Come and hear how the Spirit was at work in this story to spread the gospel to Africa and is a touchstone narrative for members of the LGBTQ+ community.
June 13th @ 7:30pm – The conversion of St. Paul – Hear the untold story of how the Holy Spirit worked through others to help make a persecutor of the faith become one of the best-known defenders of the faith the world has ever known.
June 20th @ 7:30pm – The Coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost – When the Holy Spirit came – people were able to hear the good news in their own languages and the message was spread throughout the earth. Come and hear this familiar story told through the Indigenous Bible and how Indigenous peoples in North America hear and interpret this great event.

Reconciliation with our Indigenous Siblings
As a congregation we continue to educate ourselves on the history of Indigenous peoples in Canada and the work to date towards reconciliation.
Alongside our educational pursuits, All Saints has also committed to praying for and raising funds for The Spiritual Ministry of Mishamikoweesh (Big Beaver House) in Northern Ontario in partnership with PWRDF. In 2022 funds are being raised for a purchase of a new water truck in Kingfisher Lake.
Kingfisher Lake has a population of 500 people on reserve, most of whom access water through tanks attached to their homes and a water delivery system from the treatment plant. Roads are rough, wear and tear on the vehicles is significant, repair parts are hard to come by, and the population is growing. A new water truck will significantly increase the reliability of clean, running water in this community.
