St. Alban's Theatre Program
What: The purpose is to engage faith and related ideas through theatre and the collective creation process, as well as to explore worshiping God through theatre and contribute to the worship experience at St. Alban's.
This six-week program includes discussion about arts and faith, employing theatre as a means to innovatively communicate ideas, beauty, and truthfulness, participating in theatre exercises in playfulness, expression, and storytelling techniques, and culminating in developing and presenting an original short piece to the congregation.
Who: Anyone 16 years and older. Special emphasis on being gender and sexual diversity friendly, as well as doubt and questioning friendly
St. Albans Special Vestry Meeting:
Sunday, September 25 at 11:30 a.m.
There will be a Special Vestry meeting on Sunday, September 25 at 11:30 a.m., immediately following the 10:00 a.m. service. At our Annual Vestry meeting on March 6, 2016, we considered the grant of $35,000 which was given to us by the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa, and Parish Council was tasked with formulating a proposal for what to do with the $35,000 which would be brought back to a Special Vestry meeting for consideration. Parish Council has done this work, and at our Special Vestry we will consider the following motion:
“Be it resolved that St. Albans Church use the $35,000 grant provided by the diocese to develop and provide for children and family ministry over the next 2-3 years.”
More information on the proposal as well as the date for an information meeting will be circulated later this week.
