We are a progressive, loving church. Growing in Christ and serving the needs of our community.

 

St. Paul’s Anglican Church, South Barrie.

OUR CHURCH IS LOCATED AT 54 ST. PAUL’S CRESCENT IN BARRIE ONTARIO L9J 0E2 AT THE CORNER OF YONGE ST. AND MAPLEVIEW DRIVE EAST.

INCUMBENT: REV. DEBBIE DENNIS (705) 722-7755 ext. 102 revdeb.barrie@rogers.com

YOU MAY REACH US BY PHONE: 705-722-7755  BY FAX: 705-722-4511 OR BY E MAIL: Office@stpaulsinnisfil.com

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.

ANNOUNCEMENTS (March 19, 2017)

Welcome to all visitors and newcomers to our church.  We invite you to fill out a Request for Information Card hanging on a hook in the pews. Give it to one of the ushers or place in the Newcomer Forms box located on the counter in the foyer.

Confidential Prayer Requests for St. Paul’s Prayer Chain. In the library there is a small white box for written prayer requests. Rev.

PARISH DROP-IN 1st and 3rd Thursday afternoon each month. Come out from 1 – 3 pm and enjoy a time of socializing with other parish members.

Library: Apostle Peter and the Last Supper is the second of three movies on one DVD disc. In this film, as he is led to execution, Peter tells three Romans about his life when he followed Jesus.

Help Needed!  George Timpson is nearing completion of his updating of our church history.  The church had a drive shed located behind the building in the present parking lot.  It was taken down about 12 years ago.  If any of you have a photograph or two of the shed while it existed and on the day of its demolition, please let George know so that he may include the photos within the body of the history text.  All materials will be returned to their owner(s).

Saturday, April 8, 1:00 – 4:00 pm Parish Hall.
At Vestry we passed a motion supporting the work of the larger Church effecting reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples. Rev. Debbie will facilitate a study and prayer time using a resource The Legacy of Hope provided by the national church. Sign up to help us plan.
Please note the study series sponsored by our sister church St. Thomas, Shanty Bay. A display is in the foyer.
