We are also pleased to be the “home away from home” for students attending St. Francis Xavier University and the participants at the Coady International Institute.

Annual General Meeting

On February 23, 2020 following morning worship and a potluck meal, the congregation will consider the events of 2019 during our Annual Congregational Meeting.

The reports from committees and groups will be reviewed at that time. Everyone is encouraged to read the annual report before the meeting so that we can give thanks to God for the year past and better know God’s will for the year ahead.
