Christian Fellowship

Christian fellowship and hospitality are important parts of Church Life at Islington and we have groups for people at every stage of the lifecycle. Whether it’s our Coffee Hour after Sunday morning service, Faith Family Fridays for young families, God and Guinness for young adults or Good Company for adults of all ages there are always opportunities to meet and socialize with others within our Church. We also have many special interest groups such as our Bridge Club, Curling Team or You Fitness Group that might be of interest you. Or attend one of our special celebrations such as our annual Turkey Dinner, our Pre-Lenten Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper, one of our many concerts, our Annual Meeting Luncheon or one of our more elegant affair (for more information click on Special Events under the What’s Happening Tab). Come join us for a time of stimulating conversation, friendship and good old fashioned fun. We would love to see you there.
