Practicing the presence of God through faith and action in our community
This week, it is our special joy to wish the blessings of Rosh Hashanah, and the High Holy Days, to our Jewish sisters and brothers.
Yes, our physical doors are still shut. We are working toward reopening our doors in the fall. We are working with the Anglican Diocese of BC and following the guidance of the Provincial Health Officer.
Our friends at AbbeyChurch have resumed their in-person worship, so please check them out at www.abbeychurch.ca
However, the church is more than buildings and programs. We are the body of Christ present in this world no matter where we are. We are a church without walls.
As we are present in the world, it is a great time to celebrate the global Season of Creation, from September 1 to October 4. We see this as part of our call to discipleship, informing our relationship to the land, earth and sky of God's good creation.
We are gathering via Zoom on Sunday mornings. This is a simple service of the Word with readings, open discussion and prayers. Please email:

St. Matthias welcomes your virtual visit. Welcome, wherever you are on your journey of questioning, discovery, or faith. Never been inside a church? Away for a long time? Please feel welcome to have a sampling of our worship, by clicking on any of the events or items in the blog section of this page. When the time is right, we'll be delighted to see you in person!
Today, the way St. Matthias folk practice the presence of God in our community may look different, but it's still the same vision founded in faith, hope and charity.
Recent updates to keep you in the loop.
Mark your calendars for these great events coming up.
