Come For A Drink!

I am delighted to announce that the proposal to launch The Well received the necessary go-ahead last night from the leadership of St. Giles Kingsway.

What is The Well? For a look at the formal proposal, just click the link. As for my informal take, The Well is church re-tooled for the 21st Century.

The Well seeks to be an irresistible environment, out of which the Message of Jesus Christ is proclaimed and lived out.

The Well is for skeptics. The Well is for those seeking answers. The Well is for those who have had less than positive church experiences. The Well is our rebuttal to those who only imagined churches as boring and irrelevant. The Well is for everyone……The Well is for you.


The Well will aim for excellence in 4 key areas:

The Message – relevant, Bible-based, practical

The Music – upbeat, ‘cutting edge’, and aimed at supporting the message that Jesus is the most worthy recipient of our affection and devotion

The Environment – friendly, comfortable…from parking lot attendants, to greeters, to the person serving you coffee and a bagel, we’re committed to making you feel welcome.

Children’s Ministry – creative, exciting, and safe. Your children will be attended to by compassionate and caring adult leaders.


Are you in? The Well is scheduled to launch on Sunday, September 7, 2008.

Between now and then there is a ton of stuff that has to happen to prepare the environment. If you’re reading this, please pray for us. If you live in, or near, Toronto and you want to support The Well with your time and/or resources, please be in touch. I’d be delighted to include you, and to have you share in what God is doing here in central Etobicoke.

  1. Bryn I am so pleased to hear this news. God’s Blessing as you continue to plan this ministry which is so desperately for these times.

  2. Bryn:

    Spring and summer ’08 are going to be great as we get set for “The Well”! I am visualizing the Sept. 7th launch, at the beginning of which I am frantically setting up more chairs for the bigger than expected crowd!

    You know I’ve always been with you on this, Bryn. Let’s get it on!
