Learn how to meditate online

This 20-minute meditation is based on a spiritual practice called Centering Prayer, a silent prayer that places an emphasis on quieting the mind and being still in the presence of a God who desires to commune with us. Why not join us online? If you email the church by Tuesday evening, we will send you login information. 

Summer Schedule @ noon:

Friday, July 3rd  & Wednesday July 8, 15, 22, 29

Thursday July 16 @ 7:30 pm:  Please join Marcus as he takes you on a musical journey through the life and music of Gustav Mahler. The online 'concert' will feature highlights of his works, those both influential of the time, and Marcus' favorites.  Mahler was a composer who focused not only on music, but added philosophy, art, song, and programmatic elements into his music, whilst at the same time keeping to traditional formal structures. His songs and symphonies are truly some of the most beautiful music ever written. "Try to imagine the whole universe beginning to ring and resound!"

 

 

Sunday worship and church facilities will be closed until further notice.

On Tuesday March 17th, a formal order was made by the province of Ontario prohibiting gatherings of more than 50 people. The session of Leaside Presbyterian Church has made a decision to cancel in-person Sunday worship services until further notice. In addition, our church facilities will be closed to all outside users until further notice. The session will be monitoring the situation and provide regular updates. Although we cannot meet in person to worship on Sundays, you can still participate in worship every Sunday at 10:30am.

Please see the main page of the website for information how to join us!

The worship service will be adapted with Paul offering prayers and the weekly message and Marcus providing music. Any liturgy or hymns that require your participation will be emailed in advance. It will be a time of experimentation and much fun to see what works.

Please e-mail Paul (paul.interimminister@gmail.com) or Naomi (admin@leasidepresbyterianchurch.ca) for details.
