Frequently Asked Questions
  • What exactly do you do?

As a Christian church, we are called to love God and love others, so that over time, we are able to love selflessly like Jesus does. This comes from being formed over time in prayer, Scripture, and community. We set aside time on Sundays to focus on God and to allow the stories of God's redemption to sink into our hearts. This includes listening to readings and teachings from the Bible. We also pray, because prayer is the foundation of a relationship with God. Our liturgies are rich with references to the Bible and prayers written by ancient and modern followers of Jesus. We share Communion (consecrated bread and wine) as a sign of God's healing work through Jesus and of the unity and service that forms our lives.

Outside of Sunday mornings, we do our best to support one another, to continue in prayer and discipleship, to trust God, to continue the work of love and justice that Jesus began, and to grow closer to God.

  • There are churches everywhere. How do I decide where to go?

The wide variety of Christian denominations reflects historic disagreements, movements of people, and differences in theology. We have often been better at fracturing than uniting. Every denomination will have a different emphasis in its worship, theology, and expressions of faith. But what makes a Christian church is not its building or music or length of sermon, it's Jesus Christ: God incarnate, fully human and fully divine; crucified, risen bodily from the dead, returning some day to restore all of Creation.

Unfortunately, every church will fall short of what it should be. So it's important to see choosing a church like becoming part of a family, rather than curating an experience. It takes time, intention, patience, and the willingness to be transformed.

That said, if you would like help discerning which corner of the family of God to check out, our pastor is happy to help you find the best fit, no strings attached :)

  • What if I don't know what I believe?

That's what we're here for, not to give you a set of doctrines, but to be a family of people seeking and being sought by God.

  • Do I need to be an Anglican?

Not at all. "Anglican" is just a name for the historical and theological flavour of our church, which is part of the much larger community of followers of Jesus across the globe. You are welcome here if you identify with this expression of faith, if you attend another church, or you have never been to church at all.

  • Is the building accessible?

The main floor is accessible via a wheelchair ramp to the front door. We also have a large main-floor washroom.

  • What about my kids?

Children are welcome to participate fully in the life and worship of our community. Children learn and grow in their faith by being part of the worshiping community, and we understand that wiggles and noises are part of that. Please feel free to bring snacks and quiet activities to help them along, and contact us if you have any questions.

  • Where do I park?

Our parking lot is right outside the door.

  • What do I wear?

Whatever you feel comfortable in. Some people choose to dress up a little, while others prefer casual.

  • How can I get connected? 

Come for worship or contact the pastor or any member of the congregation for more information.

  • I want to have a wedding, funeral or baptism. What do I do?

Talk to the pastor. Each of these has specific legal and/or church requirements. Please contact us before you set a date, and we will be happy to work with you on your pastoral needs.
