Monday, October 30th. The Canadian Christian Scientific Affiliation will host a free public lecture on Monday, Oct 30 at 6:30 PM entitled "Dual Revelation: The Bible & Nature" in Hurlburt Hall (Room 136), McMaster Divinity College. Many believe that Science and the Bible are incompatible. In this lecture, Don Wallar (Reasons to Believe) will explore God’s two “revelations:” The Bible and Nature. He will show how they are not only compatible but reveal a marvellous harmony. Far from being at opposite ends of a spectrum, we will see how the Bible helps us to understand Nature and how Nature helps us to understand the Bible. Since both are provided by the same Author, this should not surprise us. Don Wallar is a Certified Apologist and a member of the Canadian Board of Directors of Reasons to Believe (an international science & faith think tank). He regularly speaks at universities, churches, and general public events on issues relating to science and the Christian faith. With Refreshments! See Campus map for building location and for a poster concerning this event select Dual Revelation. Contact: Janet Warren, |

Friday, November 10th. On the Eve of Remembrance Day the choir of Central Presbyterian Church, Hamilton, under the direction of Paul Grimwood, will sing the Requiem by Gabriel Fauré. This is a particularly suitable time to perform this work, as we pause to think about the meaning of Remembrance Day on November 11. This Requiem, one of the most beautiful of all 19th century works, was written in the 1880's for the choir at the Madeleine Church in Paris, France. With Fauré’s gifts of sensuous harmony, beautiful melody and great attention to orchestral colour, this Requiem is for many a supreme religious experience. The choir's yearly tradition of presenting a major choral works, has called forth praise in the past from The Hamilton Spectator's Hugh Fraser, who has said their performances are "splendid... an exquisite surprise... some of the finest music you'll hear anywhere", and "(the first thing noticed is) the gorgeous sound that this choir makes...remarkable for both excellence and depth of feeling". Soloists for the Requiem will be Beverly Bronte-Tinkew, soprano, and Tom Fleming, bass.
     Fauré’s Requiem takes place at Central Presbyterian Church, 165 Charlton Avenue West, Hamilton, on Friday, November 10, at 8:00 p.m. No tickets are required, admission is free: however, a voluntary offering will be received. For more information, please telephone the church office at 905-522-9098, or write to Paul Grimwood at paul.grimwood@sympatico,.ca. To view poster select Requiem.

Preferred formatting for submissions to the Events Page of PresbyKirk.
The preferred formatting follows the pattern of most of the entries on this page. They open with the day and date, include the identity of the hosting congregation or organization, and then cite the particulars of location, time, event details, cost, registration process, website link, etc. This information can be submitted in a Word document or in the body of an e-mail. Additional supporting documents may include posters, registration forms or brochures. The ideal file format for supporting documents is .pdf but we can work with whatever you supply. Announcements that follow this protocol can be posted almost immediately. If you simply provide .pdf posters etc. then the process of extracting and reformatting the information is substantially more time consuming and may slightly delay the posting of the event.
