Wherever you are on life's journey, you have a home here. Young or old, questioning or confident, let's connect with something greater than each of us and all of us.
Jackie Richardson, Live at Glebe! - Friday, May 22, 7:30 pm
What an amazing night. Jackie Richardson sang and shared the stage with two friends and wonderfully talented fellow musicians, bassist Paul Novotny and pianist Michael Shand.
Jackie, Paul, and Michael held us in awe, opening with the powerful Endangered Species, making us laugh with the old blues song My Handy Man, touching us with a deeply affecting rendition of Sting's Fragile as well as a beautifully arranged instrumental of Danny Boy which morphed into Jackie singing Amazing Grace, and teaching us to sing a few songs along the way, even inviting us to help out with Gnarls Barkley's Crazy.
And much more. We loved every minute. Does that make us crazy? Does it matter?
The evening raised $5000 in total, and profits will be split between the Christian Resource Centre in Regent Park and Glebe Road United (to support ongoing ministries). The CRC has been an active presence in its community for over 50 years, serves over 32,000 meals a year, and with this concert is raising funds for industrial scale coffee makers. Everyone needs a cup of java.
Our thanks to Jackie, Paul, and Michael, the many volunteers of the Glebe and CRC community, the audience, donors, and sponsors (see bottom of page).

Carols by Candlelight - Sunday, December 7, 7:00 pm
An old-fashioned carol sing in the sanctuary with brass ensemble, choir, and soloists. This event raised close to $2000 for the Salvation Army outreach in the neighbourhood. Thanks to everyone for a special night.
Harvest Moon Cabaret
T'was an evening of fun, good food, and wine. Thanks to all the volunteers who made the celebration on Saturday, October 25 possible, not least the mysterious Appalachian mountain man pictured below.
The Colin & Deb Made-Up Show
Thanks to all who came out to see the show on Friday Sept 19 in support of Glebe and a good time. Colin Mochrie and Deb McGrath did a fantastic job entertaining us. To echo something Colin said during the Downton Abbey skit, it was poultry in motion. Special thanks too to Jim Clayton on electronic piano, and stage manager Peter Sherk.
Cynthia's Candidacy for Ministry
Wonderful news from Cynthia O'Connell. After a recent meeting with Toronto Conference, she is now an official candidate for ministry in the United Church.
Why I Go to Church...
"The Road to Glebe" by Cheryl Stenson
In 1996, my friend Deb and I were looking for a church. Not having attended church since our Sunday School years – which were not very close behind us – we felt the urge to find somewhere special where we could begin a new spiritual journey. Read story
