FAIRLAWN’S NEXT STEPS
During this phase of the pandemic, Toronto’s case numbers are still increasing and vaccinations are underway. To keep us all – including our staff – safe, our building remains closed for now, though our church community remains open through our many online offerings. Please check our services and current activities, and consider joining us. Everyone is welcome!
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
Fairlawn’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held on Zoom on Sunday, April 18, beginning at 11:15 a.m. It will be held in place of Coffee-time Chat, following the worship service. Please plan to participate in this important congregational meeting to contribute to our shared discernment and decision-making. Watch this space for login details, which will be available before the meeting.

CONTINUING OUR PILGRIMAGE
We are proactively discussing what steps we, as a community, want to take into the future, even while we continue to offer new online initiatives during the pandemic.
We listened carefully to our community – both Fairlawn and our neighbourhood – and received our Taking the Call Forward Community Research Report last spring. We held a series of congregational feedback sessions on the report last fall. Our Governing Council now is participating in a set of workshops to discern what steps it can offer for further congregational feedback as, together, we shape Fairlawn’s path in this new time. You can read the Community Research Report:
LISTENING & LEARNING
Fairlawn experienced a major transition two years ago. Our Listening and Learning paper documents the comprehensive conversations that we had with 24 Fairlawn congregants who were particularly affected. Their thoughts and ideas offer us lessons for healing, hope, and listening more deeply as we continue to move forward.
