Welcome St James Fellowship (Trenton, ON) ...
We are thrilled to welcome St James Fellowship in Trenton, Ontario! St James held its first worship service January 15 at which Bishop Charlie gave the Rev Steve Timpson his ANiC licence. The congregation has already secured excellent meeting facilities and already has a website:

Bishop Charlie Masters writes, "The small church was packed at St James Fellowship, Trenton. I heard there were well over 100 attending - many from the local ministerial and from Trenton Baptist who kindly hosted the service, six [visiting] ANiC clergy and twenty members of Living Waters ANiC church in Kingston, as well as a large core group forming St James Fellowship. There was much excitement and I believe it was a glorious first service. So praise the Lord!"

You can read about St James first service here. Beginning in February, St James anticipates moving to a 10am Sunday morning service time. They have been meeting at 5pm on Sundays, starting with a simple soup supper followed by a 6pm communion service.

Oliver, BC group forming ...
A group is forming in Oliver, BC with the hope that it will grow into a church plant. If you know of anyone in the south Okanagan who might be interested, please have them contact the Ven Bruce Chamberlayne at 250-860-9561. And please pray for this fledgling ministry.

Toronto congregations combine strengths; ministry flourishes ...
On January 29, Bishop Charlie and Dean Emeritus Archie Pell (AMMiC) participated in a special service of thanksgiving at a tea shop in the heart of Toronto. The congregations of Christ The King (Toronto) and Christ the Redeemer (Multi-cultural) have been worshiping together at Crimson Teas for several months and soon the ministries melded together. The January 29th service celebrated this new reality with, among other things, the Rev John McIllmurray, formerly of Christ the Redeemer, receiving his license to serve with the Rev Keith Ganzer, rector of Christ The King.

Christ The King – which now enfolds the combined congregations – will continue to meet at Crimson Teas for their worship service, and, in fact, will soon move to two services each Sunday morning.

The owner of the tea shop, Phillip Chan, opened the business only one year ago, but when he did so, he had a vision that a group would use it on Sundays for worship. At the time, Christ the Redeemer (CTR) was meeting nearby and Christ The King (CTK) was eager to find a way to have a downtown presence near the University of Toronto. Keith+ says, "The Lord made all the right connections and the leaders of CTR and CTK decided to begin walking together. CTK continued its afternoon service in the north area of Toronto until Advent 2016 when we began worshipping all together in the morning at Crimson Teas. Steven Xu, the evangelist at CTR, has continued his ministry of outreach to internationals as an evangelist at CTK. It was truly a combining of the strengths of the two congregations, I think, for unified gospel mission in the downtown / U of T context."
