Sunday Storm Cancellations for the 10:30 AM Gathering: Often the decision cannot be made until the minister arrives at the Church at 9 AM to assess the seriousness of conditions around Queen & Tobin Streets. When in doubt, please call the church phone 902.423.4294 after 9:30 AM, by which time the message will have been changed indicating a cancellation. With major storms the decision may be made sooner.

Refugee Update: Three congregations (St. Matthew's-St. David's-Fort Massey) are sponsoring a Syrian refugee family of five. Please give.
We are also looking for furniture, etc. Please contact the Fort Massey Church office ([email protected] OR 902.423.4294) for details.
Thank you for your support.

A major national campaign, The Vulnerable Persons Standard, was launched on Tuesday, March 1st, in response to the recent Supreme Court of Canada ruling (Carter decision) in favour of physician-assisted death. The Vulnerable Persons Standard is a set of evidence-based safeguards designed to help ensure that Canadians requesting assistance from physicians to end their life can do so without jeopardizing the lives of vulnerable persons who may be subject to coercion and/or abuse. You can view/download the Standard at You may also want to read the letter which appeared in Tuesday's (Mar 1) online edition of the Globe and Mail written by Jean Vanier, who has expressed with wisdom and sensitivity why we need the safeguards detailed in the Vulnerable Persons Standard.

  Accessible Parking, SUNDAYS ONLY, is available on Tobin Street next to the church. Cars without permits will be ticketed.
