Documents for Your information
I am delighted that you are visiting St Cuthbert's web site and hope to have the opportunity to meet with you in person soon.
We are an inclusive Christian community rooted in the Anglican form and tradition but open to people from a wide variety of church backgrounds. Some of our members have also arrived amongst us with little or no previous church connection. Simply put, all are welcome here at St Cuthbert's!
I hope you find, as you navigate through our website, the information you may be looking to find but if anything is missing or if you have any questions please feel free to contact me directly and I would be happy to chat with you about anything.
Since we have two Sunday morning worship services, it gives us the opportunity to offer variety.
Our 8 a.m. Traditional Holy Eucharist is in the language and form of the Book of Common Prayer (BAS pg.230). Once per month (usually the last Sunday except for festivals) we have hymns and a monthly coffee hour and fellowship time.
Our 10 a.m. Contemporary Holy Eucharist with Choir also includes a full children's program and a youth discussion group. Over the year we use a variety of Eucharistic Prayers and sometimes make use of the wonderful diversity we find in the prayer books of our partners from around the world (South Africa, Wales, New Zealand, USA). We also have had a Black History Month series of worship music and liturgy in February and a Celtic Music Month and liturgy in May. Coffee hour and fellowship is held weekly.
I look forward to meeting you if you join us for Sunday worship and hope you are also able to take some time to explore what we offer in other areas like Adult Studies, Children, Youth and Outreach.
Thank you once again for visiting us on our website and may God's peace be with you.
The Reverend Canon Joseph Asselin,
