Introducing “Fruit of the Vine” – a Walton Church group focused for all women in their 30s, 40s and 50s. We meet once a month to get to know each other and build a sense of community among women at Walton. All are welcome and we’re looking forward to having the time to connect (away from the bustle of after church).

Our first event is Tuesday, September 26th at 7:30 pm at the Coach & Four for an evening of fun and relaxed conversation. Please register via Facebook: or email to let us know you’re planning to attend.

[MOre Details]

A Gregory Cross Nanoknife Treatment Benefit Concert will be held at Walton United Church on Saturday, September 30th, 2017, at 7:30pm, presented by The Ault Sisters and Friends. Greg, a long-time Walton Choir Member, was recently diagnosed with terminal Pancreatic cancer. The only treatment available is IRE/Nanoknife Technology, which was not available or funded by OHIP in Canada, forcing Greg to seek treatment in England at a considerable cost of over $60,000. This Concert is to raise funds to help Greg pay for the cost of this life-extending treatment. All proceeds from the Concert will be donated to the Gregory Cross Nanoknife Treatment Trust Account. Admission to the Concert will be “Pay What You Can”  – no donation is too large or too small!  Please come out to the Concert and help support Greg’s fight against Pancreatic cancer!
