Our shuttle service, provided by Hamilton Cab, continues successfully with the ridership growing. Our driver is Shawn and he is very friendly and accommodating to our passengers. The taxi is a seven-passenger van. Shawn can accommodate walkers in the back of the van. The shuttle is funded for the year by a donation and will continue every Sunday to the end of June. It leaves from the lower parking lot at City Hall, with the entrance off Bay Street. Shawn meets his passengers at the west end of the lot, directly adjacent to Bay Street.
Service to the church leaves from the parking lot at 9:50 a.m.; 10:05 a.m. and 10:20 a.m. Park your car, without charge, in the City Hall lot. If Shawn is not there, he will be back shortly as it takes less than 10 minutes for a round trip. You will be dropped at the front door of the church. After the last trip at 10:20 a.m., he leaves for other work, returning at 11:50 a.m. so please be there prior to the last trip. Rides back to your car begin at 11:50 a.m.; 12:05 p.m. and 12:20 p.m. Meet the van in front of the church. Should there be too many people for the one vehicle to manage, another driver and van will be called in right away. You do not need to indicate to anyone that you are going to use the service, or be away if you have been using it. Shawn takes those who show up.
The prayer team confidentially prays for your concerns. If you have a special need or prayer request, please contact Donna Thomas at 905-664-8107.
Please keep Eileen Reynolds, Harry & Ria Olivier, Tricia Ferenbach, Eliza Charles, John Jagt, Frances Talbot, Kelly Marquette, Elsa White and Harold McKinney in your prayers.

Presbyterian World Service & Development is committed to protecting the rights of children, including the right to food that helps them grow and thrive. A lack of food threatened the life of one-year-old Kai when violent conflict near their village forced his family to flee their home in South Sudan. After they’d walked for days, Kai was showing signs of severe acute malnutrition. Fortunately, when they arrived at a UN protection camp, the little boy was admitted to a feeding centre that is part of a PWS&D-supported nutrition treatment program with Canadian Foodgrains Bank. After two months Kai was discharged, having grown healthier, stronger and better able to face each day while waiting for peace to be restored in South Sudan.
