Message from Parish of New Germany, NS

Hello ….. After hearing the thoughts and discussion of our parishioners who responded to the questions, we pass along these thoughts…as we continue to pray for the church

(Rev) Catherine Robar for the Parish of New Germany

“Where is your church now, and where do you want the Anglican Church of Canada to be in 2019?”

We are encouraged by the friendship and welcoming community in our local parish; the joy we share in worshipping together and caring for each other; the opportunities we have to journey together in Christ.

We are concerned about our dwindling numbers, and that so much of our time and effort must be spent on fundraising to maintain our buildings and full-time ministry.

We are encouraged and uplifted to hear of the work being done through the networking of the Anglican Church worldwide; to hear of the work of the Primate’s Fund; and to know that in a small way we participate in this.

As we go forward…

We want our ‘beloved’ Anglican church to continue.

We want to develop, among our people of all ages, increased commitment to Christ – in our welcoming, our worship, our learning, our giving and our serving …

We want our churches to be inclusive communities which are, and are seen to be, places where Jesus’ love is received and offered, taught and lived.

We want our churches to be places where each member may be equipped for ministry and sent out to serve in our communities as Christ’s love calls us.
