It’s official! We’re excited to announce that the AbbeyChurch has a new home for the Fall.
Starting Sunday September 10th, we’ll be worshiping at St. Matthias Church at Richmond and Richardson – about a 25 minute walk from where we currently worship. We’re grateful for St. Matthias’ willingness to host us in their space.
We’re excited to move into this space which will allow us more elbow room, great acoustics, room for creative prayer stations, lots of parking for bikes and cars, more time to build community with less set-up and take-down and more break-out space for children and eating together.
We remain a ministry of the Emmaus Community and a shared ministry of the Anglican Church of Canada and the United Church of Canada.
We’ll be transitioning into the space in late July, taking a break in August and re-launching in September.
In the Fall, we’ll continue to worship at 4pm but are exploring starting a 7pm Sunday worship time at least once a month (likely the first Sunday of the Month, in place of our 4pm – stay tuned).
For those who this makes a further trip, we’ll be working on walking together and carpooling. Let us know if this would help.
We’re putting together a re-launch team in the coming month as well as working on the space so we can continue to worship in our semi-circular way. Let us know if you’re interested in helping out in any way – large or small.
The Emmaus Community remains committed to presence in the Fernwood neighbourhood, and we’re currently chatting with our hosts at the current space about neighbourhood activities we might host there in the fall!
