Christian life is about celebrating and living your faith. These fellowship opportunities add to the Sunday services. Join others from this parish and sometimes other parishes in activities which promote a balanced life. You can have fun, get some exercise and gain knowledge through dialogue with others who at your station in life.
Do you have cold feet? Well, you'll fit right in with the St. Paul's Curling Group! We heave rocks, polish ice, and enjoy a time of fellowship after the game. We begin curling at the end of October until the middle of March, meeting every second week with a break over Advent and Christmas. We curl at the Nepean Sportsplex on Saturday evenings. There is a nearby pub at which we gather following the game. There is no special equipment required and no experience necessary.
If you are interested in curling with us, please contact Dave Dobson at
The Drama Ministry is primarily involved in preparing and producing short dramas for special occasions. We have, in the past, prepared dramas as part of worship services and hope to do more of this in the future. We are always ready to assist in any dramatic productions related to the work and life of St. Paul’s.
The Families With Young Children (FWYC) ministry serves St Paul's families with children (0-17 yrs). We meet on a regular basis for social events to build friendships and strengthen our community. During the spring and fall, we engage in adult "education" – dessert, study and group discussions with a focus on Christian family-related topics – every 2nd Friday from 6:00 to 7:30 pm. Child care is provided at St. Paul’s Kids Club - a fun social time for the children.
Past FWYC activities have included: annual camping weekend at Fitzroy Harbour; nature walk and campfire at Bethesda Renewal Centre; sugar bush; ice skating; 67s hockey, and cottage outings. Currently our 'regulars' consist of about 12 families with others attending as they can. There is always room for more! The direction of the ministry flows with the needs and interests of those attending. Anyone interested in learning more about this Ministry is asked to contact the church office.
St. Paul's has an enthusiastic group of green thumbed parishioners. For half the year these young of mind dig, weed, water and nurture. This committee maintains the flower beds that surround the church. We would welcome any new "hands and knees."
Gardening — do you dig it??!! Anyone interested in learning more about this Ministry is asked to contact the church office.
The Quilting Group meets every Tuesday morning in Rutter Hall from 9:30 until noon. Anyone interested in quilting is most certainly welcome to join us.
At present, we have 9 ladies working on quilts to sell when they are ready and for our table at the Christmas Bazaar. We exist, primarily, as a fellowship group and also to raise funds for the church. At our own expense we choose to go for lunch at a local restaurant after the quilting session to extend socializing and fellowship. We have fun together.
The Men’s Group is open to all, not just members of St. Paul’s.
Inaugurated 28 November 2006, we meet for Saturday breakfasts (8 am) in the church on dates which are promulgated on this site. We engage in social activities such as dinners with a guest speaker. We organize Christian events and go on retreats. We study God’s Word.
This breakfast is a time for the young and young at heart to meet, enjoy a hot meal and partake in conversation. Every breakfast we have a guest speaker present their view on a current topic or spiritual enlightenment; the speaker may even blend the two and describe "The Road Not Taken".
All members were encouraged to bring a guest (or two) to every breakfast meeting. Have something you want to say to a group of your fellow men? We’ll give you five minutes to pitch it! We’ll listen!
Offer your skills for the benefit of the church and the local community.
Coming up – a chance to help with maintaining Bethesda Renewal Centre.
Thursdays 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. - The Senior Afternoon Program is a wonderful afternoon that begins with a 1/2 hour service in the church, then moves to the Hall for a fun social time, often with entertainers from all over Ottawa. The program operates weekly on Thursdays from Sept to June and is open to any seniors around the community. Those who attend are among seniors who live on their own and seniors living in Retirement/Nursing Homes in the area.
We provide transportation to those who need our help. Some participants come on their own, take buses from their residence, or use Para Transpo.
This ministry has been supported by volunteers from St. Paul's, St. John's March Parish and both Glen Cairn & Kanata United Churches. We have a very active roster of about 20 volunteers but are always welcoming more to help out on a regular or periodic basis. With holidays and various schedules we can always use an extra hand, whether it is baking for us, organizing the kitchen, driving or visiting with the seniors. Please consider joining us any Thursday afternoon from Sept to June.
Since its' inception in 2000, we have been blessed to come to know many seniors within our parish, from our surrounding neighbourhoods and as well as many from the area retirement and nursing homes.
We do arrange transportation for those who need. For questions on the program contact Minx Mulhall @ (613) 253-8632.
