St Paul’s Parish Hall

Information and Community Use

Our parish hall can hold approximately 80 people when seated (as for a dinner), and 120 people when standing (as for a light reception). Directly off the parish hall, there is a full kitchen, accessible washroom, nursery & breastfeeding area, and the Doucette Room (a small room housing our library and fireplace).

Our hall is a vital part of our church life, and provides welcoming space for church and community activities. Tai Chi, Pilates, and Yoga classes have all taken place in our hall. VON Foot Care Clinic, Weight Watchers, Alcoholics Anonymous, and Northumberland Child Development Centre are just a few of the community groups who currently use our facility. The hall is often used for smaller events too, such as family Christmas parties or scrapbooking nights.

We consider the use of our hall as part of our service to the community; as such, there is currently no set rental fee; however a freewill donation to offset expenses is appreciated. You will also need to sign our facility use agreement and provide proof of insurance, or purchase insurance through the church. We reserve the right to refuse hall use, particularly for groups and events which are not in keeping with the beliefs and mandates of St. Paul’s Anglican Church.

EASTER DAY, the delight of new life for all who put their trust in Christ, continues the celebration begun the evening before. We celebrate the truth and mystery of the empty tomb.

Jesus lives – now and always!!

Holy Saturday and Easter Eve 2018

9:00 pm THE GREAT VIGIL OF EASTER (BAS)
Lighting of the New Fire
Entry of the Paschal Candle
Declaration of The Exsultet
Candlelight Vigil: Old Testament readings and Psalms
The First Communion of Easter
Presider & Preacher The Reverend Keith Joyce

Holy Saturday, during the day, brings Holy Week to a close. That seeming forgotten, silent day reminds us that Jesus did lie dead and abandoned in the cold tomb after his death on the cross.

EASTER EVE brings us to the climactic and most significant service of the whole Church year in The Great Vigil of Easter. We arrive in darkness which is then broken by the lighting of the new fire which is passed to the congregation’s candles as the large Paschal Candle is processed in from the new fire. The glorious words of The Exsultet celebrating the power of the light of Christ over darkness are declared immediately. We then, in Vigil, listen to Old Testament readings interspersed with prayer and Psalms to mark the history of God’s redeeming work.

Finally, we celebrate the first glorious Communion of Easter to mark God’s great victory over sin and death in the fact that Jesus has risen from the dead and the tomb is now empty. We then leave in the joy of the new light of Easter. Jesus has risen from the dead and he is alive today! The glory and power of Christ’s crucifixion bursts out and into the world from the open door of the now useless grave.

Good Friday Worship 2018

10:00 am Stations of the Cross – for children
* parents, guardians, family members and friends are very welcome to accompany the children

12:00 noon CELEBRATION OF THE LORD’S PASSION
Officiant & Meditation The Reverend Keith Joyce

GOOD FRIDAY, that most powerful of days, so shocking from the human perspective, so victorious from the view of heaven, so disastrous to the purposes of hell, so full of the grandeur of God in face of the rancid evil of sin, celebrates God’s loving intention for His world. We worship, with great solemnity, yet with deep joy in our hearts, and ponder Christ’s majestic work of salvation and healing. Always remember – there is no Easter without Good Friday. The day includes a Stations of the Cross for children at 10:00 am with 12:00 noon being the time for The Celebration of the Lord’s Passion.
