News and Events

Summer Theme: For the past few years we have been using a preaching theme during the summer. In recent years they have included the “Fruit of the Spirit”, the Psalms, etc. This year our theme is called: “You’ve Got Mail…”. The sermons will be based on scripture and themes from the Epistles (Letters that were circulated to the early Christian communities, like mail.) We are being invited throughout the summer to experience a word from God coming into the ‘inbox’ of our life and soul.


Summer Sunday School: Parents are expected to sign their children into Sunday school at the red display in Memorial Hallway.  If possible, please do this before church begins, but if you have not done so, accompany your children after the story time and sign them in at that time.  The same parent who signs the child(ren) in should also arrange to sign them out when classes are over.  If you are new to Parkdale, please fill out a registration form (yellow sheet) as well as signing in your child.  Snacks are often served so please notify the teachers if there are any food allergy issues.  ​



THANK YOU to all who are helping out with the Summer Video Program, the Nursery and with music throughout the summer.


Let’s Keep In Touch! As summer approaches we would like to keep you up to date on upcoming events.  Please send your name and email ID to




Fellow Parkdalers, once again this year we are all being invited to ensure that arrangements are made to ensure that our regular financial offerings are maintained over the summer even when on vacation. The funding of our ministry is still needed over the summer and it is often a challenging time in terms of our congregational financial responsibilities due to the drop off in attendance and accompanying offering. We invite those who are not using PAR (pre-authorized remittance) to subscribe thereby ensuring that your financial generosity continues to bless our work and witness.




Thank you to everyone for continuing to support the Parkdale Food Centre.  The first Sunday of each month is set aside for our church.
