Purity is a free, city-wide event for all men over 17 who are struggling with or interested in the topic of sex addiction and pornography. This will be a closed unrecorded event due to the sensitivity of the content being discussed. It will be on November 17 at 9am at SunnyBrae Baptist Church.

NEXT will be happening November 18 after the service! This is a chance for newcomers to meet pastors, staff, and to learn about next steps in your faith journey. Pizza, drinks, and dessert are provided. Children are welcome. The event lasts for 45 minutes, and it is hosted upstairs in the Family Centre.

The Women Arise Ladies tea is on Sunday November 25th, at 6:30pm. There will be a time of Christmas music, fellowship and sweets. Tickets are free, but bring mitts, a scarf or hat for us to donate to those in need. Please register at the information desk in the atrium, before or after the service by November 20, if you plan to come.

There are many opportunities to give during the Christmas season here at Moncton Wesleyan. We have Christmas sponsorship, giving to those in need; Christmas volunteering for those who are looking to help out; donations for harvest house; and are planning to serve those who are by themselves on Christmas day by having an event here at the church. For more details on these events check the printed upcoming, check your weekly email, or check out below!

Young Adults! Please join us on December 9th for a Christmas potluck in the Family Centre! We are excited to share a meal together and celebrate what God has been doing in our small groups this Fall. Bring a dish, and join us for a fun, relaxed evening!

We wish to come alongside those within our church family who may need help for the Christmas Season. To help, write an option on your Connection Card or go to
