November is a bit of a strange time in the year; the cold and dark middle chapter between the excitement of early Autumn and the holy winter of Advent. For this reason we're going to try to keep November simple, a time to catch our breath, before we dive into beauty and glory of the Christmas Season.
If there are any unanswered questions by the end of this, feel free to email Pastor Jill (email@example.com), Pastor Kevin (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the Elders (email@example.com) and they will make sure to answer your questions!
Every Sunday gathering starts with coffee + tea at 3pm, with the service beginning at 3:30pm sharp
November 12 - Sermon from the Lectionary / Advent Arts meeting after church (for anyone interested)
November 19 - Sermon from the Lectionary
November 26 - Sermon from the Lectionary
Dates and details for December to be announced soon. But one important Save the Date:

Time to be determined.
A lot of people have pledged this fall, and want to know more about giving forms, and how to regularly tithe to Eucharist Church. You can bring money on a Sunday, give a one off gift, or give regularly through Pre-Authorized Deposit, which is the most predictable and helpful for us as a church. Click here to find out more about giving, download a PAD form, or read our theology of why we give.
SMALL GROUP EVENTS
(Eucharist Small Groups)
Our small groups, called "Living Rooms" are now gathering!
(Support for Mental Health)
If you have been impacted by mental health challenges, and would like a supportive group to connect with, this is for you. Whether it's resources for health, or finding ways to integrate our faith and mental health, this monthly group is a great starting point.
Wednesday November 27, 7pm
2 Ray St S, Hamilton, Ontario
Joint Choir with St Cuthberts
For the last year we've had a joint choir with St Cuthbert's Church, and it's a great way to get to know some other Christians, and to sing together! The group will perform during Advent at both St C's and Eucharist.
You can just show up without notice: Thursdays at 7:30pm, 2 Bond St N.
PEOPLE TO KNOW
If you haven't yet connected with them, here are two people in our community who have stepped into new roles.
Pastoral Care Internship
His placement started back in April, and will be carrying through the fall. Rob would love to meet with you if you need a listening ear, someone to pray with, or any other form of pastoral care. Rob recently finished his M.A. at Wycliffe Seminary in Toronto, and is excited to take what he has learned into the classroom into the real world of our community and our city.
If you would like to meet for a coffee or a walk, please email Rob to set up a time. Click here to email him!
Having started with a contract in April, Alissa Fairly is officially on staff indefinitely as our kids coordinator! We have a great Sunday kids program, and a lot of great kids in our church. Alissa is excited to work with our team to help our kids grow and evolve into all God desires them to be. Children are a sign of the Kingdom of God, and always have a place at the table of our church!
