Life Groups and Spiritual Growth
One thing that all of us have in common is that we are on a journey – an adventure of life – and we’re not meant to journey alone. At Yorkminster Park we welcome you to journey with us.
Our Life Groups are opportunities for us to do life together, to share in the struggles and victories, the sorrows and the joys. So whether it’s enjoying the renaissance of colouring, a Sunday lunch and walk, liturgical dancing, knitting and crocheting for a cause, or prayer and Bible study, there is a place where you can belong. Check out the opportunities below. If you have any questions feel free to email Robyn.
Congregational Lenten Journey

Sundays 10:00 - 10:45 am, Youth Room
Are you frazzled from trying to hold everything together whilst making lunches, helping with homework, attending everything, and pleasing everyone?!
Is there any time or energy left to tend to your soul?
Well we don't want to add anything more to your "To Do" or "To Go" list, but if you would like to spend a few minutes on a Sunday morning with other parents in the same boat, learning, praying, and commiserating together, we'll begin meeting Sunday mornings from 10:00-10:45 in the Youth Room. Childcare is provided.

New To Yorkminster Park
Sunday Oct. 16, 23, 30 at 9:45, Pastor's Study
At Yorkminster Park we want every person who walks through the doors to feel at home and to know that you are welcome here.
We recognize that you may have some questions about faith in God, baptism, membership, who we are as a church, why we're here, and why we do the things we do. So every few months we offer a series of informal gatherings to explain ourselves and to answer any questions you may have.
The topics include:
Christian Faith, what is a Baptist, who is Yorkminster Park, Christian Spirituality, Baptism and Lord's Supper (Eucharist)
If you're interested in becoming a member you may join Yorkminster Park Baptist Church one of three ways:
1. By Baptism
When anyone is baptized at Yorkminster Park they are baptized into the family of Christ and into the membership of the church.
2. By Letter of Transfer from another church.
3. On the basis of Christian experience
Members of other Christian traditions can come into membership based on their confirmation or profession of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.
Feel free to email Robyn with any questions you may have about the class or to let us know you're interested.
