Family Fun Day & Open House!
Sat, 15th June, 2019 - 12-3pm
Family fun zone and open house, including a carnival with bouncy castles, games, and a BBQ.
Find out more about Bobby's Place, a new community gathering space planned at Grace Church and some of the programs, services and events to be hosted there that will be available to ALL in the community.
People of all faiths, orientations, ethnicities and abilities are always welcome at Grace.
No, you don't have to be a parishioner to join us at this incredible event and find out what is coming to your community.
The best part (it's all free - tire the kids out, get the inside scoop on what's coming and rest your wallet).
There will also be holding musical performances, cemetery tours, a ministry fair, archival displays, and information booths for organizations who use space at Grace to serve the community.
Join us and members of the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry as we announce that the new bell tower will be named the "Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry Memorial Bell Tower" to honour the members of that regiment who have served our country so valiantly for more than a century.
In addition, a century ago the Flintoft family donated a bell to Grace Church in memory of their son, a member of PPCLI who died in action during the First World War. The 400lb bell will once again sit proudly atop of the building as part of Bobby's Place.
Find out more about Bobby’s Place, a new building project named after Bobby Smylie, a ten-year-old boy in our congregation who died of complications from the flu in February of 2018.
Grace Church’s vision for Bobby’s Place is that it will be a beautiful and functional community gathering space where people meet in both structured and casual ways to engage in social, recreational, educational, artistic, cultural, and community building opportunities.
It will also serve as a resource centre where people can access a variety of services. Grace Church is expanding its partnerships with not-for-profits, community groups, government, and businesses to provide programs, services, and events that meet needs and interests identified by neighbourhood residents and other stakeholders.
People of all ages, ethnicities, faiths, sexual orientations, and abilities will find that they belong at Grace.
