Having fun, breaking bread and building relationships in community. Check the calendar for coming dates!

Let us then pursue what makes for peace and for mutual up-building. Contribute to the needs of the saints; extend hospitality to strangers.
- Romans 14:9, 12:13

They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. Day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread at home and ate their food with glad and generous hearts.
- Acts 2:42, 46

The Fellowship ministry builds community with regular and special events that support parish and community involvement through the breaking of bread. This ministry functions in a spirit which reflects an abundant, welcoming and caring God. The friendship and fellowship they enjoy with one another and meeting new friends is as much part of the work as the food! .

Coffee Hour - Fellowship and Conversation
Following each regular liturgy, there is opportunity to share in coffee, tea and conversation with members of the parish. Coffee hour is powered by volunteers who take it in turns to gather and prepare the hospitality involved.

Tea & Company in the Parish Hall
Every Wednesday, friends gather at 1:30 in the Parish Hall on Halson Street for an afternoon of unstructured fellowship. This group of thirty to forty attendees participate in a variety of activities that include but are not limited to: Playing cards Playing Scrabble Quilting Knitting (for St. Matthews House). You are welcome to this fellowship of informal tea, coffee, refreshments and conversation.

Men's Lunch
The "Pressure Cookers" originally started to encourage those living on their own to gather, cook and dine together. Their fellowship has grown into a group of men who just love to cook and break bread with friends, then share the benefits of their work around. Ususally held on the 4th Thursday of the month at noon, just call the office to register and confirm the date!

Friday at the Movies
Throughout the year, screenings of topical movies are shared in the parlour, along with refreshments. Discussion follows!
