This will be a First Sunday in Advent like no other.
We will honour our commitment to Right Relations with Indigenous themes throughout the service in music, drumming and prayers.
There will be a dedication of the new banner “United in Reconciliation”.
The choir will sing “The Gift” by Indigenous Canadian composer Russell Wallace about coming together as community that links beautifully to the donation of our angel gifts and to our communion, which will be served with bannock.
For those who are interested, we will offer smudging outside the East Door—this is an Indigenous purification ritual using sage, cedar and sweetgrass smoke.
