We'll continue to meet in the summer every other week as we transition toward our new space in August. We're now excited to announce that our new location, beginning August 7th and 21st we will be First Metropolitan United Church at Balmoral and Quadra.
For the summer, we'll be having a simple liturgy with Gospel Based Discipleship instead of a sermon.
AbbeyKids will continue through the summer.
Here's the schedule:
July 10 and July 24 – meet at 1702 Belmont Ave. (Begbie / Belmont / Grant - big yellow house - we'll meet outside for worship, weather permitting and AbbeyKids will meet inside or go to the park across the street)
Aug 7, Aug 21 – New Space - First Metropolitan United Church - 932 Balmoral Rd. (at Quadra)
Sept 4 – Willows Beach outdoor worship on the beach (Labour Day Weekend)
Sept 11 – New Space - Blessing of bikes & backpacks - resuming weekly Sunday afternoon worship - First Met - 932 Balmoral!
We worship together - including AbbeyKids - most Sunday afternoons at 4pm.
We love when folks can make it in person.
However, if you can't, please do join us on our livestream via YouTube and Facebook. Please note that we won't be livestreaming in late June/July - but do reach out if you're one of our distance folks - we'd love to have a virtual coffee!
Welcome to the AbbeyChurch where all are welcomed at Jesus' table.
Please do feel free to join us any Sunday and participate as your feel comfortable.
We are an intergeneratonal worshipping community of seekers, saints and sinners who seek to follow Jesus as we are be led by God's Spirit into lives of prayer, presence (with God, each other - and in our neighbourhoods) and simplicity.
We are a ministry of the Emmaus Community, which is a neo-monastic intentional community of ordinary people who commit ourselves to following Jesus in ways akin to the monastic life. Not all AbbeyChurch folks are part of Emmaus - you're welcome to be a part of AbbeyChurch regardless of connection to Emmaus!
As a witness to unity and diversity, we are an ecumenical shared ministry of The United Church of Canada and The Anglican Church of Canada. We intentionally draw on the 'jewels' of these traditions, as well as the wider church.
