We gather today on the traditional territory of the Algonquin nation. May we always dwell on this land with respect and peace.

Prelude: Prelude on Beach Spring    Timothy Piper

Grace and Welcome   The Reverend Canon David Clunie


Eternal God, you have ordained and constituted in a wonderful order, the ministries of angels and mortals. Grant that as your holy angels stand before you in heaven, so at your command they may help and defend us here on earth. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

Opening Hymn:  503   Fight the Good Fight

Reading:  Revelation 12:7-12    read by Jane Billings

And war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels fought against the dragon. The dragon and his angels fought back, but they were defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. The great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, proclaiming, ‘Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Messiah, for the accuser of our comrades has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God. But they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they did not cling to life even in the face of death. Rejoice then, you heavens and those who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, for the devil has come down to you with great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!’

Psalm 23

Gospel:  John 1:47-51

When Jesus saw Nathanael coming towards him, he said of him, ‘Here is truly an Israelite in whom there is no deceit!’ Nathanael asked him, ‘Where did you come to know me?’ Jesus answered, ‘I saw you under the fig tree before Philip called you.’ Nathanael replied, ‘Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!’ Jesus answered, ‘Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than these.’ And he said to him, ‘Very truly, I tell you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.’

Canada Helps

  • Offertory: Generous financial support is our expression of gratitude which along with our time and talents enables us to provide worship at St. Bart’s and support God’s work in service in our community and beyond.
    We thank our contributors on the PAR program for their monthly automated donations. If you would like to enroll on our monthly withdrawal plan, PAR, you may follow this link
    And thank you for those who have been mailing in their contributions or dropping them through the church mail slot. At this difficult time “Canada Helps” is another way to support us through a credit card payment. (They charge, we think, a reasonable, 3.75% to us)
