Lent 2018

Parish of Blandford

Weekday Bible Studies during Lent are moved to the Rectory, 4821 Highway 329 at 7 pm.


This year we will explore 5 different themes we find in the Bible using selections from the Sunday Scripture readings, short videos, reflections and fun exercises to check out what we know about the themes. We will also explore to see if these themes have anything to do with our lives today.

Week 1 – February 21 Covenant

Week 2 – February 28 Laws

Week 3 – March 07 Atonement

Week 4 – March 14 Justice

Week 5 – March 21 Agape/Love

Each session stands alone, however, there is a progression as we move towards Easter.

Special General Congregational Meeting of Saint Barnabas Church

Notification of Special Congregational Meeting

Saint Barnabas Church

Concerning a bequest from the Estate of the late Granville Gates:

Saint Barnabas Church is named as a principal beneficiary of the Granville Gates trust.

We have received a request from the administrator of the trust to wind up the trust early. This requires the approval of all the beneficiaries of the trust, including Saint Barnabas Church.

Notice is given today, August 20, 2017, to the congregation of Saint Barnabas church of a special meeting of the congregation to be held:

September 03, 2017 at Saint Barnabas Church after Sunday morning service (11 am).

We will be discussing and voting on the administrator’s proposal. Details regarding the trust and the proposal to wind it up early will be available at the meeting.

This is an important meeting with financial implications for Saint Barnabas and the Parish of Blandford. We pray that as many members of the congregation as possible will be able to attend and participate in this decision.
