• The Gospels are eyewitness testimonies that tell us about God, God's grace, and how love transformed lives and communities.
• Scripture is God inspired, honored, faithfully questioned and struggled with.
• We are a community that affirms and believes in the Apostle's and Nicene Creed
• We are co-creators of liturgy, both beauty and theology matter in worship.
• We provide a bridge from the modern world to the traditions of the church
We are Anglicans! Which means we are part of the Anglican Church of Canada.
We belong to the Anglican Diocese of Ontario.
But we have lots of people from a variety of denominations who worship with us.
Reverend Noel and Reverend John are Anglican enough for all of us!
There are married couples, some young families, Baby Boomers, and some over 90!
We worship liturgically, but are creative in its use. We also sing the hymns, and contemporary music. So we're a mix of ancient tradition and contemporary worship. Innovation is welcome but we believe it is our traditional worship that keep us grounded in a rapidly changing world.
Rev Noel has been a priest in our church since 2017. He is married to Dr. Tia and together have a baby girl named Ruah. He has a passion for mission, discipleship and preaching. As a priest strives to create a worship community that is engaging and practically rooted. He is the Chair of the Kingston Community Chaplaincy, a restorative justice organization. He holds an MDiv from Tyndale Seminary. His favourite quote is, "tell me more...".
