Knit & Natter: On Tuesday mornings, at 10am, a group meets with knitting or other
projects, enjoys coffee and nattering together. In the past they have knit shawls for the needy and
little orange sweaters to remember the Residential School children. Their next project is to knit
squares for a quilt. They meet on alternate weeks at May Loudon’s or Jean Lawrence’s
homes—in the garden or by the sea, weather permitting.
Wednesday Morning Faith Study Group: (10:30-11:45am):
Lively discussions emerge from the study of faith-related books such as Henri Nouwen's Reaching Out, Anne Lamott's Help, Thanks, Wow, Harold Kushner's The Lord Is My Shepherd, Barbara Brown Taylor's Holy Envy.... Currently (October, 2022) the group is reading and discussing Amy-Jill Levine's Signs and Wonders. Newcomers are welcome! Contact Cathy Sosnowsky, 604-770-4570 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
As an outreach to our community, choir members and others who like to sing, gather at the Hollyburn House to sing for its residents. Usually the fourth Monday of the month at 1pm.
Donations of non-perishable items may be left in the Food Bank box by the front door. Every second Sunday of each month is “Food Bank Sunday.”

If you have used hearing aids, please give them to Shirley Pearson to support this program.
