Anything can happen at a Bathurst service. This is certainly true! But our Sunday mornings also offer traditional experiences for regular worshippers and visitors.

Bathurst Services Clustered in Themes

The Worship Committee meets to plan the services. Bathurst does not follow the lectionary, rather, a theme is chosen for a cluster of services.  Members of the congregation or an outside speaker are then invited to provide a reflection on a topic related to the theme. Songs, prayers, and readings are then selected to reflect the topic of the service.

The Reflection

 

Many different people give the Sunday reflection: the minister, Bathurst members, guest speakers. They can be talks, presentations, videos, or guided small group discussions.

Children in the Service

 

Table Talk is a focal point of every service. The children–and some adults–sit at a low-rise round table in the middle of the chapel. Someone reads, or tells, a story. They show pictures and sometimes use action figures to bring the story to life. The children can remain at the table and work on crafts, with guidance from the young-at-heart. Older children sometimes help with Holy Communion or offer prayers.

Communion

 

We usually celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of the month. We form a circle and eat the bread and drink the wine as a community.

Solstice Service

 

We celebrate the summer solstice with an early service on Kew Beach in Toronto’s East end. After the service, we gather in the waterfront park for a picnic lunch.

Summer Gatherings

 

Bathurst does not hold services in July and August. Instead, we gather for weekly discussions on topics or books of interest.
