This Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent. I have attached two digital devotionals that you may find helpful.
The Advent 2021_FINAL.pdf file is entitled “The Gospel of Advent” and describes the fuller meaning of Christ’s birth. Following this will provide a good foundation to follow our Sunday messages.
The Family Advent Devotional is a family advent devotional that I hope will provide those with children a means to get together and share about the meaning of Christ.
We have permission to distribute both.
For those who would like to join us in-person at St. George this Sunday. We have Simon Pan preaching. Our pre-registration link is:

Last week we had 62 attending in person. Our capacity limit was 65 so it is timely that we are moving ahead and following our church’s Proof of Vaccination policy that has been recently forwarded. Toronto Public Health will allow churches to lift capacity limits only if they follow standard PoV protocols (like they do in restaurants and gyms). For this week we are asking you to:
- Continue with the online preregistration and COVID pre-screening
- Bring your Vaccination Certificate or QR code when you come to service. If you have a medical exemption, please bring the letter from an immunologist or cardiologist who are the only ones qualified to write a Covid vaccine exemption letter (due to the rarity of the conditions under exemption)
- Bring a government issued ID with the same name and birth date on the Vaccination Certificate or QR code. (You will only need to show this once if you give us permission to keep your vaccination status, not personal information, on file.)
On Saturday December 11 TCBC will be hosting a Traditional English Carol service from 7pm to 8pm at TCBC.
The purpose of gathering is strictly to worship the Lord through singing Carols together. There will be singing along with a short Christmas message that will be Christ and community focused. Consider this an invitation to come with your friends who like singing carols and as a chance to meet members of the community. Friends who cannot attend in person are invited to lead us to sing through a pre-recorded video (and Yes I will be asking some of you who live out of town if you would consider recording your favourite song and so we can sing with you that evening)!
Hope to meet up with you (in-person or on-line) soon.
