Celebrating more than 125 years in the neighbourhood.
We seek to create a place where all are free to explore deep questions without judgment or over-simplistic answers. We are ordinary people seeking to follow Jesus—a challenging and fulfilling experience that brings joy to our lives in many different ways.
We worship together at different times and in a variety of worship styles. While there are a number of “congregations” that are part of the Church of Saint John the Evangelist, we are one parish family. We are united in our identity as follower of Jesus and in our participation in God's mission in our world. We hope that you will visit us. We seek to be welcoming and affirming of all people regardless of race, gender identity, or sexual orientation. We seek to welcome and support the gifts and ministries of all. And if you are looking for a church home, we hope you will find one among us here.
