At Harrow, we recognize that we are not alone: as we seek ways to be a blessing in the larger neighbourhood as we gather for worship, for play, for study and discussion, for food and laughter as we grow in understanding of what reconciliation means as we wrestle with financial challenges We are not alone when we are wounded by grief or pain or betrayal or addiction when our hearts long for a better world when we struggle to discern what it means to be ‘church’ in changing times when we ask, “What would Jesus do?”
