Presbyterians Sharing LogoPresbyterians Sharing Sunday is September 26, 2021

This is a day to celebrate the generosity of Presbyterians across Canada using gifts given by God to carry out Christ’s ministry in our communities and around the world.

Together, we build strong congregations, serve vulnerable people, walk with Indigenous people, seek justice and share God’s love around the world. Together, we are Presbyterians Sharing.

The following materials can be tailored to meet your congregation’s needs. There is a complete printed worship service, videos of the sermon and children’s story, and all the digital components you need to create and customize your own service. Use on September 26 or any other Sunday that works for you. Feel free to share the videos on social media or on your congregation’s website.
