Pilgrims on a Journey
Who: We are all pilgrims. The Christian life is a journey: of community, of service, of faith.
What: Pilgrim is an adult education course developed by the Church of England, with contributions from Anglicans from around the world.
Why: Following our parish’s recent Natural Church Development survey, we want to increase the opportunities for us to reflect together on our faith. In particular, we want to grow through prayer and Bible reading, and the deeper sense of God’s presence in our lives that comes from spending time with God in these ways.
When: During the month of May, we will meet once a week as a small group. We propose three different weekly meeting times: please choose the regular meeting time that will best suit your schedule. Sign-up sheets are posted on the bulletin board outside the church office.
Sundays after church: May 7, 14, 21 and 28
Mondays at 7 pm: May 8, 15 (*Tues May 22 only) and 29
Wednesdays at 1 pm: May 10, 17, 24, 31

Joyful Giving Program
A Joyful Giving program will soon be introduced at our parish. No gift is truly a gift unless it is freely given. Joyful Giving is sharing, in a planned, proportionate way, the wealth with which God has blessed us. It is a sign of our gratitude to God and is an expression of our faith, of what we say we believe.
“For your heart will always be where your riches are.” (Luke 12:34)
The Refugee Sponsorship Committee is very happy to announce the long-awaited arrival in Canada of the refugee family the Church of St.Timothy has sponsored! Our family consists of two young parents and two children, a girl and a boy aged 4 and 3. The family is originally from Myanmar (Burma), a country with many desperate refugee problems, and they arrived in Toronto on June 20th. (follow this link for more information about the status of refugees in Malaysia).
We are very grateful to parish members (and our neighbourhood community) for their support, to the Anglican United Refugee Alliance for finding us this family, and to our partnering church St. Leonard's for their able assistance. Our Committee continues in its efforts to support our family and we will keep the community updated regularly with news and requests for assistance when needed.
We are looking forward very much to helping our family settle in to their new life as Canadians!
Men′s Breakfast Club
Please be sure to join us once a month on Saturday morning at 8:00 in Soward Hall for a delicious breakfast, great coffee and wonderful conversation.
We recently decided to begin opening the main part of the church to our neighbours during the week. While the office building is busy all week long with schoolchildren, dance classes and so on, the church itself is rarely open during the week. Thanks to a team of 11 volunteers, anyone can now come in through the front doors on any weekday and spend some quiet time in St. Timothy’s between 11 am and 1 pm. A sign near the sidewalk indicates the church is open and welcomes visitors inside.
