Dear Friends:

The session has met regularly to consider the needs of the congregation and to begin planning for our eventual return to worship in the building. With the rush of news around the move to phase 2 of the Provincial reopening scheme, session has chosen to follow a gradual approach, aiming for return on August 16th. The summer will be spent ensuring that we have policies and practices in place to ensure the worship experience is as safe as possible. On-line worship will continue, and there will be alternatives in place during Jeff’s scheduled vacation weeks (July 6-12 and July 27-Aug 10).

The session has also held a joint meeting with the Financial Stewardship and Administration committee (FS&A) and the Building Stewardship Committee for updates on the financial situation and the various maintenance projects planned for this year. Replacement of the sanctuary roof shingles has been put on hold for now, but the third phase of the sandstone rehabilitation is underway and should be completed by June 24. The Finance committee and the treasurer have continued to monitor the finances, and investigated government assistance programs offered to businesses (and churches) during the pandemic. We are grateful for the continued generosity of St John’s members, adherents and supporters that has allowed us to continue through this season of uncertainty with minimal pressure on our deficit. We do have the resources to manage this deficit, but the plans for a capital campaign to ensure a sustainable model for the future (as discussed at the annual meeting in February) are moving forward.

Be Well.

...But God has so arranged the body, giving the greater honour to the inferior member, that there may be no dissension within the body, but the members may have the same care for one another. If one member suffers, all suffer together with it; if one member is honoured, all rejoice together with it. Now you are the body of Christ, and individually members of it.
