SUNDAY MORNING

Welcome to Saanich Peninsula Presbyterian Church.

Our worship takes place at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday morning both in-person and online. We invite you to join us each week as we continue to explore and follow the Word of God. Following the service, there will be a fellowship time at the back of the sanctuary.

Under BC's Restart Plan, Phase 3, the following restrictions remain in force:

  • Everyone who is eligible is strongly encouraged to be fully vaccinated

  • Please, perform a health check prior to attending

  • Masks are not obligatory but are highly recommended for those who are not fully vaccinated (14 days after the second injection)

  • Please, use provided hand sanitizers upon entering the building

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday.

News for Sunday, October 17, 2021

Blanche Richer was a good friend and faithful member of SPPC, who participated widely in the life of our congregation, including, for several years, as editor and writer of the Shepherd's Way newsletter. Blanche died peacefully last April 10; however, as that was during the height of COVID restrictions, her memorial and interment in the Garden of Remembrance has been delayed this Saturday, October 16, at 2:00 p.m.. The family invites all those attending to a reception following the service.

Sunday worship takes place at the usual hour of 10:00 a.m. and, as has become our practice during the pandemic, you are also welcome to participate via our live stream, which you can also access via the SPPC Youtube Livestream button above. We are continuing to follow the Book of Job. This Sunday our readings are:

Psalm 104:1-9, 24, 35c

Job 38:1-7, 34-41 

Mark 10:35-45

Next Sunday, October 24, Diane and I will be away on holiday in the Okanagan, so you can look forward to Pastor George Hodgson once again gracing our pulpit (he might even sing again!)

Please remember the Warm Toes initiative, which will continue to the end of this month. We collect socks, toiletries, soaps, shampoos, toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs and the like for distribution through the Mustard Seed Street Church. Good winter coats are also a huge need. You can bring your donations to the church or contact the office and our Mission team will be happy to come by your home and pick them up.

We are spending a lot more time indoors again with the cooling weather, so please everyone take care of yourselves and your neighbours and we continue through the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties, Blanche Richer's Memorial could not be streamed. An audio version will be added to the worship page in the near future.
