Small Group Ministry has been a long-standing feature of our church life. It is a way to join with others in the pursuit of common interests or spiritual development. Some groups meet monthly, some more frequently. Small groups will start anew this fall; some new groups are in the early stages of development. Check the weekly bulletin for more information about the small groups available at SSUC. Please feel free to contact Sue Doerksen (613-766-3254) firstname.lastname@example.org / Barbara Parrott (613-389-3601) email@example.com If you have an ideas for a new group we would love to hear about it.

The Evening Book Group meets on the final

on Tuesday, October 25. Contact Ellie Deir for information

The Community Garden was a student was run project, which worked in partnership with Sydenham Street United Church. The summer of 2014 was the first growing season, in which we grew a variety of heirloom vegetables and herbs, on a 42ft by 21ft plot located on the front lawn of Sydenham Street United Church. It has now been taken over by the Community Gardeners of Sydenham Street and the produce is donated through Loving Spoonful to help provide healthy meals to individuals and families who might not have access to fresh fruits and vegetables. For more information contact Kate Mackrell, firstname.lastname@example.org

meeting generally every 2 or 3 months on a Friday from 11:00

knitting/crocheting together, prayer, tips on instructions
and technique, and conversation. Everyone is welcome.
