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, September 26

Fall comes slowly to the Saanich Peninsula. There's certainly little doubt that the weather has turned autumnal, but, as usual, the leaves hold out a bit longer here on the west coast. It all happens a lot faster in the rest of the country. But we do see the harvests being gathered in the fields and are reminded of Thanksgiving, fast approaching. This year we are celebrating this holiday in a special way, as after our Thanksgiving Worship on October 10, you are all invited for a luncheon in the hall. You should have received your invitation by now (if not, please contact the office). Now in these times of COVID-19 it may seem strange to hold a special Thanksgiving, especially as the disease continues to make headway among us; however, as we look upon the last year and a half we are reminded just how blessed we are here on the Saanich Peninsula and Vancouver Island, and how well we have been looked after in troubled times. So let us give thanks and celebrate!

Next Sunday, October 3 is World Communion Sunday and we will be celebrating the Lord's Supper. Unfortunately, given the continuing threat of the virus, we will not be able to return to our usual service yet but will serve the elements in individual cups, as we have done for the last year.

This Sunday we meet for our regular worship service at 10:00 a.m., which you can also livestream via the SPPC Youtube Livestream button above.

This week our Scripture readings are:

Psalm 104
Numbers 11:4–6, 10–16, 24–29
Mark 9:38–50

Please continue to look after yourselves and your neighbors as we move into the cooler weather and back indoors.

God bless you all!
