Watoto Children's Choir is coming on June 3rd to St. Andrew's.  We are looking for billets for 22 children.  We have received the particulars for the billets.  One adult from the Watoto group accompanies 2-3 children and looks after all their needs regarding personal hygiene, etc.  The children are happy to share a bed and are comfortable with pillows and blankets on the floor.  There are 11 boys, 11 girls, four women, and four men.   The host/hostess is asked to provide breakfast and a bagged lunch.  As well, we are looking for volunteers to help with set up/take down at arrival and at departure.  A free will offering will be taken at the concert.  Please call Rosemary Forsythe at 705-732-8234 if you would like to help out. 

As well, we are planning an early potluck dinner the evening of June 3rd.  It would be welcoming to the Watoto Choir if as many as possible could attend.  Please call Rosemary at 705-732-8234 for menu ideas

Youth This Week

As you can see from the photos above, we had a great time on Saturday Bowling. Thanks to everyone who came out, we had lots of fun. I think we need to make it an annual event! Check below for whats happening!

From the moment you step through our doors
you will enjoy the warmth of our welcome
and quickly understand why we say . . .
"there are no strangers here . . .
just friends who have yet to meet!"

We are a friendly and welcoming family church for all ages in the heart of Parry Sound. Parry Sound is a thriving municipality in the heart of Georgian Bay's vacationland. Whether you are a year round or a seasonal resident, or a visitor enjoying a restful vacation in our beautiful area you are invited to worship with us.

We are easy to find and there is ample parking in the two lots beside the church. Please keep the lot closest to the building for those who need consideration.
