Our principal weekly service is Holy Eucharist, held every Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m.

Our worship on Sunday mornings follows the rite of Holy Eucharist from the Book of Alternative Services. On most Sundays it includes hymn singing, Bible readings, a sermon, and prayers, culminating with the Eucharist (also known as Holy Communion). We welcome everyone, regardless of where they are in their spiritual journey, to take communion with us. Those who do not wish to receive communion are welcome to come to the Altar for a blessing from the Priest.

Following the service most parishioners and visitors meet in the Parish Hall adjacent to the church for coffee or tea and a chance to talk with each other and strengthen our bonds of community.

We believe you will find our church family very friendly and welcoming, whether you are just coming for a visit or are interested in becoming a member. Why not come and worship with us this Sunday? We will be delighted to see you!

Children and Youth

We warmly welcome children and young people to our service. Children can sit with their parents, or there is a play area at the back of the church with some toys and books for young children to play with during the service. During communion children are welcome to come forward with their parents to receive the Eucharist or a blessing from our Priest.

As part of our ministry for children, our parish sponsors two foster children through the Christian Children's Fund of Canada and corresponds with them on a regular basis.
