We come from all parts of the city, nation and world and from many different religious traditions. We gather to seek, to learn, to celebrate, to support one another, to step away from mounting daily pressures and stress and find space for the Spirit, to be strengthened, to make a difference in our families, our communities and our world.
To follow the way of Christ and to love the Lord our God with all our soul, mind and strength and our neighbours as ourselves. Worship is one of the most important ways in which we live and express our faith.
From autumn through the spring, two worship services take place at 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. each Sunday. (Throughout the summer, we have one combined worship service at 10:00 a.m.) Our 9:30 service is intimate and informal with our ministers and readers standing among the congregation. Our 11:00 service is larger, more formal and includes the choir. During the 11:00 a.m. service, all ages worship together before children and teens up to grade 10 go to church school. See this Sunday’s worship times and themes.
Through autumn, winter and spring, this service is at 12:10-12:30 p.m. each Wednesday in the sanctuary for Holy Communion followed by tea and a bag lunch.
Gathering the second Wednesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary, the Iona service is a quiet time of worship, songs, readings and prayer in the Celtic tradition.
