We are a people who are deeply interested in serving those in our local community. We have been blessed with huge population growth as many young families move into South Barrie. We also have the Sandy Cove retirement community within a short drive from our church. We want to let people know that St. Paul’s means acceptance and assistance. This is to live out the Great Commandment: You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul and with all your mind. You shall love your neighbour as yourself. We offer many opportunities for those in our midst to grow in their faith. Life is difficult. Life is not fair. It may seem as if there are more and more demands on us and less and less time, energy and money to meet them. A two career commuting family with small children or a retired widow on a fixed income all know that life can be stressful. You may wonder where the joy has gone. You may wonder who you are. St. Paul’s is a place where you can explore ultimate questions in a safe environment.
