Part of the requirement of every student preparing for ministry is to spend a year actually “doing” ministry within a congregation or some other appropriate context. Rev. Brad and the session of SPC have been contacted by Knox College regarding the possibility of having a student in our midst for this year. Having agreed, we are pleased to let the congregation know that this year Chad Bolton will be with us. Chad, who lives in Charlottetown, is working on his Master of Divinity degree through Knox’s long-distance education program. In addition to meeting on a weekly basis with Rev. Brad for intentional reflection on the practice of ministry, Chad’s role will be to take part in our weekly worship services and to be involved in other aspects of the life and ministry of SPC. This is an exciting opportunity for both Chad and our congregation. We pray that this may be a year of continued learning and growth for all of us.


The Kensington-New London Pastoral Charge is hosting a Pastoral Care Workshop Saturday, Sept. 16., led by the Rev. Mark Buell, a minister in our Presbytery and chaplain at QEH. This workshop will be of interest to anyone who wonders what to say to someone when visiting in hospital, or at the time of a death. Anyone wanting to learn more about pastoral care, visiting, and being an active listener is invited. The workshop is taking place at the Kensington P.C. from 10am-12, with a lunch to follow (donation to cover the cost of lunch is appreciated). If interested in attending please RSVP to Rev. Torrey by e-mail: torreygriffiths@gmail.com or by phone: 902-856-2352 by Friday Sept. 8.


Presbytery will meet Sept 12th at 6:30 at Camp Keir. All are welcome to attend
