At the Redeemer, we know that asking deeper questions and exploring issues of faith helps us grow both as individuals and as a community.
Throughout the year, we offer a variety of speakers and learning series, providing opportunities to gather and learn together; details are provided here as well as through our eNews. A warm welcome awaits all who join – parishioners, friends and members of the wider community.
Welcome to Redeemer Readers – the Church of the Redeemer book group. The group will meet this year in the board room on the lower level for one hour at noon on Thursdays – October 25, December 13, January 31, March 21 and May 9. New members are always welcome and all are welcome to attend as many of the five sessions as you can. This year our books focus on issues of doctrine, spirituality and charity in books written by important Christian thinkers of our time.
