Hey there Westheights! Early one morning this week, I was outside with our dog and I found myself serenaded by the neighbourhood birds. At that moment, I was reminded of how Jesus uses birds to illustrate God’s care and provision for people like me. It is amazing how something as small as a bird can be something God uses to speak.

“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” – Matthew 6:26

As we wrap up this week, here are five things you might want to know about….


1. Have you found our YouTube channel?

In light of COVID-19, we have moved our Sunday times together to our YouTube channel. In addition to Sundays Online, we are also posting a weekly check-in video. Please subscribe so you don’t miss out!


2. Good Friday

On Friday April 10 at 10:30AM, we will be gathering online for our Good Friday service. Our time together will include a family-friendly reading of the Last Supper and Jesus’ betrayal, a short meditation and communion. In preparation for communion, we are asking that you have a small glass of red juice and a piece of bread (or cracker) with you so that we can eat and drink together.


3. Online Bible Study

This week we experimented with a 7-day online Bible study and it was a hit! Starting on Monday March 30, we invite you to participate in a new one with your fellow Westheights friends. This link will take you to the YouVersion Bible App, where we’ll go at the same pace, reading a devotional reading, a verse of scripture, and then discuss what God is teaching us along the way. This 5-day study is based on C.S. Lewis’ reflections on Joy.


4. Looking for Worship?

In the coming weeks we will be including times of worship in our Sundays Online. But until then, we have created a Westheights playlist for us all to listen to on either Spotify or YouTube.
