Moms and Dads Group
2014 Dev 8, Mon, 9:30 am, Club Room
Twice a month on a Monday morning, Moms, Dads and their babies and toddlers are invited to gather in the Clubroom on the main floor of the church.
This is an informal group where we gather to talk about the joys and pains of parenthood. It is also a chance to have some adult conversation, and for your babies and toddlers to socialize.
Don't worry if you are a bit late and it is okay if you have to leave early we totally understand the reality of being a parent. Feel free to bring your friends and invite other Moms or Dads. This is an open group.
Messy Wednesday!
Every second and fourth Wednesday of every month at 5:00 pm families from R-W meet to share a warm meal that is specially made together in the R-W kitchen.
This meal has become a highlight of the week for many children attending. Grandparents are welcome and encouraged to bring their Grandchildren to Messy Wednesday's too!
Upcoming dates are Nov 26 and Dec 10.
Women's Weekend Carol Sing
December 20, Saturday, 1:00 pm
Join the Women's weekend troupe in Memorial Hall on Saturday afternoon for a joyful afternoon of fellowship and music! There will be plenty of delicious refreshments and snacks to carry us through the afternoon. We may even be able to take requests for your favourite carols and Christmas songs.
All are welcome!

Open Hearts—Open Community

In response to God's call, we,
the congregation of Robertson-Wesley United Church,
declare our commitment to opening our hearts and our church family
to all people in our community,
regardless of sexual orientation, age, gender,
differing abilities, ethnicity, or economic circumstance.
We recognize that many people's lives continue
to be devastated by hatred, prejudice, and inequality,
therefore, as a compassionate and caring spiritual community
we will stand with those who are adversely affected
by injustice, alienation and oppression.
