Connection Lunches

The next connection lunch will be on Sunday, May 24, from 1 – 3 pm.
This is an opportunity for you to meet some new people and connect in a deeper way with some you may already have met. We will meet in groups in a few different homes for lunch after church. Spending time together like this helps us to really connect and know more about one another, enabling us to further become a loving and caring community within our congregation.

How do you participate?
You can sign up either to host a lunch or be a guest at someone’s home. Once you sign up, you will be assigned to a group of about 6 – 8 people and we will let you know where you are going.
You can either click here to register or by coming by the registration table that will be set up in the foyer of the church after the 9 am and 11 am services on Sunday.

Youth Guys Retreat (dads, sons, youth, leaders)

On Friday & Saturday June 5-6, St. John’s will be having a Guys Retreat at Camp Kawkawa in Hope, BC. Friday night we will settle in and have snacks, games, and lots of fun. Saturday morning we will have some great gospel teaching for dads, and also for the boys. After a tasty lunch we will spend the afternoon in sweet fellowship as a group; allowing for lots of time to interact one-to-one. Dads, youth, and leaders always enjoy the air rifles, archery, and waterfront. Every year we go on an amazing hike through the Othello Tunnels, which feels like you are entering Middle Earth or Narnia. This retreat is truly a favourite of the dads and boys that have come in the past.

The cost is $100/ person ($50/ person Saturday only)

If you have any questions contact Rev. David Little.

(Second) Nepal Earthquake Update

On Tuesday May 12th, just two weeks after a devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal, a second earthquake of 7.3 magnitude shook the country. Jeremy and Krista Curry, our mission’s partners in Nepal, have once again reported that they and the YWAM team in Nepal are safe. The Curry’s are now working with YWAM to try to bring relief and assistance to the thousands of people in the surrounding villages who are desperately in need of food, water, shelter, and rescue assistance, with many bodies still trapped under the rubble. Please consider giving to the Curry’s at this critical time. All donations will go directly towards solar lights, tarps, rice, medicine and water tablets. For information on how to give visit and click on the ‘Donate’ button under the Nepal Relief Efforts headline.

Anglican Relief and Development Fund Canada (ARDFC), is also appealing for donations for relief work in Nepal. With the Government of Canada matching donations for Nepal relief - including donations to ARDFC - your gift will go even further. To donate, please go to the ARDFC website,
