Sanctuary Clean-up

As you know, the roofing work is causing some discharge from the ceiling onto the pews and sanctuary furniture. Helpers are needed each Saturday at 4 p.m. (after the crews have finished for the day) to remove the tarps from the sanctuary, replace pew cushions and generally clean up. As the saying goes many hands make the work lighter for all! Can we count on you? Please sign up at the Connection Centre.

Griefshare at Brunswick Street Baptist Church

Have you experienced the recent death of a loved one? You don’t have to go through the
grieving process alone. Brunswick Street Baptist Church is pleased to offer a 13-week GriefShare grief recovery seminar and support group, starting on Thursday, Sept. 5 in the Family Room.

GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. GriefShare includes a video series that features Christian experts on grief and recovery topics as seen from a biblical perspective combined with support group discussion.

Paul Colman Concert

Last year, in September, we met for a combined service with special guest, Aussie gospel musician, Paul Colman. The response to Paul’s ministry was so positive that we’ve booked him for a return engagement on Saturday, Sept. 14, 6:30 p.m. We encourage you to invite your family and friends to join us for this highly entertaining and spiritually engaging time. Reserve the evening on your calendar now!

Are You in the Directory?

Over the past year Brunswick Street Baptist Church has been seeking to update our Online Directory. This resource is only accessible to those who are included within the online directory. To be a part of the 150+ families in our online directory please send an email to with all the information that you wish to include in your profile (ideally a phone number, email, and photograph of your family) and we will make sure you are included!

Going Green!

We’re asking you to think about helping us reduce paper use at BSBC. We’re pleased to report a great response to the initiative inviting households to sign up for “electronic mailings” for the fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. So far 82 households have chosen to forgo a paper copy of these letters/envelopes being left in their mailbox or mailed to their homes.

Fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas & Easter mailings

If you would like to adopt this method of communication simply email Lisa Kitchen in the church office and she will be happy to add you to the list. That’s one way to save!

Bulletins & Newsletters

Over the last number of months we have monitored the number of bulletins and newsletters left over each week and made adjustments based on this knowledge. But we thought we should remind you that the weekly newsletter is available on our website OR you can email Lisa and she will add you to the list to receive the weekly newsletter in your inbox. She is also able to send you the bulletin if you wish. If you do this then we’d encourage you to forego taking a copy on Sunday mornings; we’ll adjust printing accordingly as we monitor each week’s “leftovers”.

Thank you for helping us reduce our paper use which will make BSBC a ‘greener’ place to be!
