Pre-Schoolers' Drop-in Starting Next week, the Play Group drops in on Fridays instead of Tuesdays, still in the morning from 9 - 11. Caregivers and their pre-schoolers are welcome to come for a time of free play and interaction.  Riding toys abound, snacks and beverages find their way here most weeks, and there is always good company.  Friday March 2nd is the first changed day/date.


Drama Club Spring 2018   Another dramatic adventure awaits us in 2018.  ArtsFest dates are set for April 28 and 29.  It will feature a visual arts exhibition and a variety of artistic performance, including the Woodbine Heights Drama Club.  Email woodbineheights@gmail.com for details.


International Dinner Our annual feast for the taste buds and the funny bone is on Saturday March 3rd at 6pm.  Bring a favourite dish or two of food you love from a part of the world you love, with plenty to share.  Enjoy a plateful of savoury treats, some sweet ones too, and then sit back to enjoy some singing, dancing, poetry, story-telling.  You never know what sort of mix of entertainment you'll find, but it is always enjoyable, and good to be together.  So... Come and see!


Good Friday Worship-- We join with L'Arche Toronto on March 30th for Good Friday Worship at The Gathering Place, 186 Floyd Avenue.  Refreshments and quiet conversation at 9:30 a.m., with the service taking place at 10am.  Be part of this significant experience in our lives of faith.
