We remember

We remember the fallen, those who returned and those who serve today.  We pray for God’s blessing upon them.  We are reminded to strive for peace in our everyday lives, to pray for it and to uphold the values and freedom won for us in the past and sustained for us in the present.

Celebration Lunch Sept. 24th

Everyone is invited to gather for lunch after the service to celebrate the 71st anniversary of St. Giles, the first month of our new minister, Reverend Becky Roushorne-Lau and the dedication of all of our churchgoers who served generously and well during the vacancy.

Recent Passing of Don Smith

It seems that Don has always been a part of St. Giles and, even after having moved away, both Don and Ann are St. Giles family members forever.  Our hearts and prayers go out to Ann and all of their family and friends as we wish them God’s peace.

Recent Passing of Jack Simpson

Always by Ev’s side and quick with a witty comment and a smile, Jack was a well-known and loved member of our St. Giles family.  We will miss that twinkle in his eye – the stars are likely shining a little brighter now.  Each memory of him is sure to spark joy.  May the peace of Christ be with Ev and all of Jack’s family and friends.

Recent Passing of Doug Levitt

Dearest Doug, God be with you.  Your car was the first in the parking lot Sunday mornings.  Your dedication to scripture and quiet presence were surely glorifying to God and certainly faith-strengthening for your St. Giles family.  May the Lord’s face shine on you.

Leading in Love – Inspiration to grow on

Crafty Celtic crosses by Cathy and Debra.

Thank you to the St. Giles LEAD team led by Jim S., the most excellent “Revs” – Christine O’Reilly, Janine Dekker, Rebecca Roushorne, Allan Farris and Judith Farris as well as our musician for the day, Chris M. for a heartfelt and spirit-led day apart to re-orient ourselves as leaders or “first followers” in our own church and in the wider community.  And a special thank you to all of those who came from other churches and possibly stepped outside of their comfort zone to network and support each other to become servant leaders for the glory of God.  PS.  Great lunch, Joanne!  And 3 cheers for our techies behind-the-scenes, Geoff and Valdene, who operated the sound and many Powerpoints.
