Who we are: people of community and communion
We are part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, connected to our sisters and brothers through the Body of Christ. We gather weekly seeking new life in Christ, the ancient wisdom of God and the movement of the Spirit. The Bible is our sacred text and story. We seek in Scripture inspiration and guidance for our own life of prayer and service.
We are people of community and of communion. We don’t need to agree with one another about all matters of faith, but we are called to pray together, with and for one another.
We are people who honour deep questions and curiosity. We love the rituals of worship and the open-mindedness of spiritual exploration. We are committed to reaching out, beyond the Church, to seek and serve Christ in all persons.
Our worship consists of music, prayers, and readings from Scripture as part of our celebration of the Eucharist (Holy Communion). We experience Holy Communion as a sacred act of remembering and
re-living Jesus’ last meal with his disciples, a time when we receive Christ’s presence in the bread and wine and are re-made into God’s own people. Jesus was generous in his meal sharing with those around him. As we celebrate at God’s table, we also welcome everyone to share the meal Jesus offers.
Sunday 10:30 am (with Sunday School Sept-June)
Starting July 11 we will worship outdoors (weather permitting) with a Eucharist service every Sunday at 10:30 am. Provincial rules limit gathering size to 50 so you must pre-register to attend. Please bring a lawn chair if you can.
We will continue to worship Sunday evenings at 7 pm online via Zoom (also available via landline telephone). There is a Eucharist service on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month, with bread prepared for the occasion in each person's home. Most other Sundays we use an Evening Prayer service.
Music plays an important role alongside word and prayer at all services to inspire us.
Baptism, Confirmation, Marriage and Funeral services are all celebrations of God's gifts. Please contact the church if you are seeking any of these services, or are just looking for some information about any of them.
