Snow Days: If it snows, please use your judgement and good sense and only come if it is safe. You can always watch the livestream. I will come if it is safe for me, but I live 2 blocks away. If I cancel church, I will put a message on the Facebook page and group page, the website, the phone machine (if I can make it work) and I will send out an email to those of you on the parish email list (if you’re not on, give me your email address and I will add you). I will still livestream the service from home
A worshipping, loving and welcoming community, joyfully sharing God's gift
For over 160 years this parish has been a vital part of the community of Spryfield. We have experienced much change in the Anglican Communion and in the Parish. It is hoped that the future will hold new growth, and that we will continue to be receptive to all the changes that may be necessary to keep our family strong and united in our goal.
We remind each other and the world that "God is with us."
The following is a poem written by Jane Borthwick that was included in the Emmanuel Church, Spryfield Annual Report for 1949 and continues to be relevant today.
Come labour on,
Who dares stand idle on the harvest plain,
While all around him waves the golden grain.
And to each servant does the Master say,
"Go work today."
Come, labour on.
Claim the high calling angels cannot share.
To young and old the Gospel gladness bear;
Redeem the time; its hours too swiftly fly.
The night draws nigh.
Come, labour on.
Away with gloomy doubts and faithless fear!
No arm so weak but may do service here;
By feeblest agents may our God fulfill
His righteous will.
Come, labour on.
No time for rest, till glows the western sky,
While the long shadows o’er our pathway lie,
And a glad sound comes with the setting sun,
" Servants, well done."
