Extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures, ones that we could not have imagined just a few short weeks ago. Rev. Steven Stead, Pastor of the Central Parish Presbyterian Charge, which includes Clyde River and Canoe Cove churches, has risen to the challenge to minister online to his congregation at a time when feeling part of a community is vital. Even though people can’t meet together in a physical place of worship, we are fortunate to have technology where we can connect via the internet.

Central Parish has set up its own YouTube Channel which you can subscribe to here and be alerted when a new video is added. Steven has posted his first service in two parts which we have embedded below for viewing on our site, or you can click on video to watch on YouTube. Of course, he adds a little humour at the beginning when he explains the solution he came up with to alleviate his awkwardness of preaching to an empty church. Music is provided by their praise team called Revelation.

On behalf of the community, thank you, Steven, for being a good sport and moving outside your comfort zone to continue your important ministry at a time when we need your spiritual guidance, and humour, too. We have a large website audience, so your ministry will reach not only Clyde River and Canoe Cove but many other communities across Canada, the United States and around the world. COVID-19 knows no boundaries; neither does God’s love nor the ability for us to come together.

We invite viewers to leave a comment below to let us know what part of the world you are watching from and how you are getting along. We encourage you to share this link with your family and friends. If you would like to reach out to Rev. Steven Stead, you can email him at steven.stead@hotmail.com.

Burnside Church

Burnside Presbyterian Church in Clyde River is pleased to invite you to their annual cemetery service on Sunday, July 29th, 7:00 p.m.

Burnside is caretaker of the cemetery that has been in use since 1861, with a new section added in 1962. As the cemetery grows, so does the list of families who are connected to the cemetery.

The cemetery committee has endeavoured to find the names of descendants who have a loved one(s) buried there. Their wish is to include all those people who have a connection to this cemetery to attend their July 29th service.

Having their service at 7:00 p.m. in July allows us to still have sunlight that will make it possible for visitors to visit the grave of their loved one. We are planning an uplifting service of remembrance with special music and a time for refreshments and visiting. There will also be musical accompaniment as visitors enter and leave the church. The service will finish at 8:00 p.m. and visitors are then welcome to the Riverview Community Centre across the road for refreshments.

They welcome you to attend with friends and relatives to remember your loved ones that have gone from your everyday life, but who clearly live on in your memories. While death may be sad, remembrance is not.

Remembrance

We talk openly of life.
Of joyful times we had.
And the joyful times we will have together.
Death gives no joy. It has no voice.
We have muted it because there are no more time to have together.
While the remembrance of death is painful, the remembrance of those who lived,
those we loved, is joyous.
They have left footprints implanted in our minds, in our hearts,
and in the very essence of our being that shall remain forever.
Death is sad. Remembrance is not.
So, let us remember their lives. Forever.
