New Church Day Banquet

This year we’re trying something new—a Canada-wide New Church Day banquet, held online.

This is an opportunity to dine together virtually, and listen to a talk about the New Church. You are all warmly invited!

Date:  Saturday, June 20th

Time:  The meal will start at 8:00pm EDT, and the program will begin at 8:30

Where:  Via Zoom. You can join the Zoom session with a computer or over the phone

Speaker:  Rev. Jim Cooper

Here’s a description of the event:

“In connection with the spiritual food that is being offered, maybe you would like to share some natural food too? For anyone who would like, there will be an online New Church Banquet! What this means is that you will eat in the safety of your own home, connected via Zoom to other people across Canada who are celebrating New Church Day at the same time! We will be using Zoom break-out rooms, so you would only be with a few other people at the same time, having a nice chat, in-between mouthfuls of course! If you are up to it, you could decorate your table in the traditional New Church colours of red and white, and perhaps even highlight red and white foods—strawberries with whipped cream anyone? The meal portion will start about half an hour before the more formal portion of the evening, so you might prefer to just share a cup of coffee or glass of wine with your friends. In any case, if you’re interested, please RSVP! It would be helpful if you’d note whether or not you’d enjoy being put into a small group with other Canadians, to share a meal with them.”

Once we know that you’re interested in this event, we will send you information about how to join the Zoom session.
