Summer News - Rev. Judith Evenden joins us
This July, Rev. Judith Evenden joins us as Crossroads' minister of Word and Pastoral Care, following an extensive search process to find a successor to Rev. Bill McAuslan, who retired in June, 2017. More information about Judith will be posted shortly on this site.
Due to her position on the national executive of the United Church of Canada, Judith will be away for some of our summer services as she attends the General Council 43 which is a national meeting of the United Church. It takes place every three years and this year is being held in Oshawa, ON.
Worship services continue during the summer at Crossroads (at 10:30am - our regular time) - check here for a list of summer services

Crossroads is a partner in the West Kingston Refugee Partnership (WKRP). Our church is working with the Islamic Centre of Kingston and Edith Rankin, St. Andrew's-by-the-lake, Cataraqui, and Cooke's-Portsmouth United Churches to help bring at least two refugee families to Kingston and to raise funds and provide support as they establish themselves in our community. The first refugee family has now arrived in Kingston in early 2016

About the season: Ordinary Time
When: From the Sunday after Pentecost (May 20 in 2018) until the beginning of Advent (Dec 2 in 2018).

Meaning: As crops slowly grow in the fields, this time between the major holy seasons in the church provides a time in which we can grow our faith, and then turn our focus to the mission of the church in the world.
