Within Our Church Doors

WITHIN OUR CHURCH DOORS

Comfort cuffs were knit by ACW members for older persons who are dealing with agitation/ fidgeting. The comfort cuffs distract them as they “fidget” with the objects sewn on the cuffs. The comfort cuffs were donated to local centres caring for older persons.

Anglican Church Women (ACW)

 

The ACW help support our church in many different ways and also has supported a number of caring organizations in the community, nationally and internationally. All the women of the church belong to the ACW. This is a very active group that prays together, unites in the study of women of the bible, fundraises, decorates the hall or church for special events, provides and serves food, and many more activities.

 

PASTORAL CARE TEAM

Members of this team stay in touch with some of our church community who are unable to attend church regularly. Home visits, focusing on companionship as well as spiritual needs, are arranged with individuals at their convenience. Security checks are required for members of the team.

SUNDAY SCHOOL

Children of pre-school and elementary school age are welcome to join in activities that help them to get to know the Gospel and God. The children are also included in activities within the main worship service. Immanuel Anglican Church complies with all Anglican Diocesan guidelines for providing a safe environment for children, including the screening of all children’s program leaders.

 

VESTRY/LEADERSHIP TEAM

Vestry makes informed decisions regarding the Vision for the Church and the follow through of actions that are required for these plans. The team is also responsible for making the decisions regarding the finances of the church.

  • Music – helping to choose the music for the service and/or providing the music through playing the piano, guitar, or other musical instrument.
  • Welcoming and greeting people as they arrive, reading scripture, leading the prayers of the people, and serving communion during the service.
