"A six-week program in Saint John to help fathers connect with their pre-school children is a small first step in what the two churches hope will become an international effort to start practical programs around the world." (from the CBC website)

Starts September 17
Our Vestry has agreed, along with the Leadership Team from Saint John Vineyard, to implement a change in our worship times this fall. Beginning Sunday, Sept. 17, when we start up our Sunday School again, we will move our worship time at Stone up to 10:00 am. We will attempt to keep our service to 1 hr. 15 mins. and hold our coffee hour immediately after the service, as normal. On Sunday, Oct. 1 Vineyard will move their worship time to 11:30 am. We feel this will be a beneficial change for both congregations for a number of reasons:
