Holy Week at Leaside United Church

Here is a look back on Holy Week at Leaside United Church. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the hope and transformation Easter promises. From Communion on Palm Sunday to a Blue Moon rising mid-week capping off with an Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Celebration Sunday, the week provided many moments for contemplative reflection.

Spirit Alive – Saturday April 14, 2018


Spirit Alive will be meeting on Saturday April 14th, 2018

10:00 to noon


Leaside United Church (auditorium)

Coffee, tea and refreshments between 10am – 10:15am

We will be exploring the topic of:

The Sabbath in 2018

Questions to consider:

“What is the relevance of the Sabbath in today’s secular world?

Do we still honour the sabbath today and,  if so, how do we do so?

David Phillips will lead a reflection and discussion  about the meaning of the sabbath in today’s world. The session will include  a look at sabbath traditions in other religions. Walter Brueggeman’s book titled “Sabbath as Resistance” will be used as a resource for this session.


On a regular basis Spirit Alive meets to explore matters of spirituality, meditate, and reflect together. Save the second Saturday morning of the month to meet at 10:00 to noon. Spirit Alive begins with coffee, snacks and fellowship followed by a period of led meditation, music, quiet time and reflection to deepen the sense of the spiritual at the center of one’s life.
