Doors Open Event: 

The event organized by the Doors Open W-S Organizing Committee & the Whitchurch-Stouffville Museum & Community Centre was a blessed event and the Lord gifted us with perfect weather. 40 volunteers of which there were 20 youths, participated contributing 520 hours. We had a steady flow of visitors interested and keen to visit our church and learn the architectural and historical facts of the church and also indulged in the Indian delicacies made and prepared by our Womens fellowship, Sevika Sangham. These people came from all walks of life and from in and around the Greater Toronto Area not just the town of Whitchurch-Stouffville. Truly a blessed event to all 150 visitors who walked thru these doors and all who volunteered. Our sincere appreciation and record our thanks to one and all.
