Our new cross is up! In the summer, I asked local artist Sarah Cowley to make us a cross for the outside of the church to show that we are an inclusive, welcoming, and affirming church. She made this beautiful cross to mount on the cross already outside of the church.
You can see not only the colours that represent our diversity, but the mirror behind the cross allows you to see the reflection (maybe even your reflection) in the cross.
I blessed the cross in the fall, and was hoping for a big reveal on Easter morning. Unfortunately, we will not be worshipping for our Easter celebration. We will celebrate this important sign of our faith when we can gather again.
Thank you to Bryan and Hunter for their hard work in disassembling and then reassembling our church crosses. At night, they will be lit up as a visible sign to our community. ... See MoreSee Less

Today was the day we finally got to share the wonderful art of Sarah Cowley with the congregation. It's a Canterbury cross which will be put in front of the cross at the front of the church. It represents the welcoming of all people to our church. Thank you so much Sarah for sharing your talent with us! And so good to find a unique way to be an affirming church in our community and Diocese! ... See MoreSee Less
