You are beloved. come as you are.
At the AbbeyChurch we gather each Sunday at 4pm as a community (both dispersed and gathered) to worship the God of liberating love and to be nourished and sent to reflect that love and justice and peace in our lives and world. We come as doubters and sceptics. We come with a passionate faith and with wounded hearts. We come. knowing that God meets us right where we are!
We accept all at Jesus' table of communion. We welcome and are enriched by the full participation, leadership and inclusion of LGBTQ2IA+ folks in our community. The AbbeyChuch performs marriages with all sexual orientations and gender identities.
The AbbeyChurch is a Christ-centred, Trinitarian ministry of the neo-monastic Emmaus Community which seeks to live out faith daily, not just on Sundays though commitments to prayer, presence and simplicity.
As a community we pray together most weekdays and seek to live lives of hospitality including with those on the margins of our society.
As a community we have a commitment to prayer, presence and simplicity. AbbeyChurch members are welcome to participate in the life of the Emmaus Community as they wish.
We are a shared ministry of the Anglican Diocese of British Columbia (aka Diocese of Islands and Inlets) and the Pacific Mountain Region of The United Church of Canada. We are in full communion with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada. We connect with the NewLeaf Network and the Parish Collective.
