Practicing the presence of God through faith and action in our community
Yes, our physical doors are still shut. We are, however, delighted to say that we are working toward reopening our doors, most likely in the fall! We are working with others in 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, we believe that 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.
We are gathering via Zoom on Sunday mornings. This is a simple service of the Word with readings, open discussion and prayers. Please email:
to receive the Zoom meeting login.
We also invite you to enjoy The Chapel Gallery's current exhibit, Kirsten Brand "Renewal." Curator Jill Ehlert has created an extensive online exhibit. We are grateful that this exhibit remains available for your enjoyment!
Your virtual visit is important to us. St. Matthias welcomes you, no matter where you might be on your journey of questioning, discovery, or faith. Never been inside a church? Away for a long time? We welcome you warmly, today "virtually" but whenever it is again possible, we'd love to see you at any of our worship services or other events. 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.
St. Matthias folk believe we are called to practice the presence of God through faith and action in our community. Today, the way we practice the presence of God in our community may look different, but it's still the same vision founded in faith, hope and charity.
