Welcome our New Incumbent
We are very pleased to announce that after nearly a year searching for a new minister, the Parish of Churchill and Cookstown will welcome the Rev. Dr. Gregory Charles Gilson, Dean from the Diocese of Moosonee and his wife, Valerie. He brings with him years of experience, along with a great sense of humour and enthusiasm.
Services are at 9:15 a.m. at St. Peter's and 11:15 a.m. at St. John's in Cookstown. Please feel free to attend either service. We are always happy to meet new friends. WE ARE KID FRIENDLY!
St. Peter's Soup Sunday is the first Sunday each month unless otherwise advertised. Everyone is welcome to join us. There will be a free will donation basket for those who wish to help support this outreach program, however, a donation is not necessary. Half goes to outreach and half goes to the operating budget. Please stay and enjoy a hot bowl of soup w/bun, dessert, beverage and fellowship.
