We’re baaaack!! Our first in-person service will take place tomorrow, Sunday, September 12th, 2021 at 10:00 am. Live streaming will also be available at 10:00 am. For those attending the in-person service, all Covid precautions will be taken. Following Diocesan guidelines, we ask that you sanitize your hands, that you maintain social distancing between individuals and cohorts where possible, and that you mask except when receiving communion. There will be no congregational singing. We must have a record for contact tracing. To facilitate this, all attendees must register, providing their names and contact information (phone and email) on a sheet of paper, and given to the greeter. As per guidelines, there will be no coffee following the service. We hope to see you there after such a long time apart!
Who are we?
St. Laurence is a vibrant, welcoming and inclusive Anglican community. We are theologically progressive and intellectually challenging. We practice a renewed and compassionate Christian spirituality to deepen our experience of God. And we share this path with others as a response to the growing hunger for meaning and hope in our world.
“We are a spunky, open-minded Anglican community. We love to ask questions, experiment with new things and through the www.wisdomcentre.ca contribute to the larger conversation about how to renew and revitalize Christian life in the 21st century.”
Live streaming Sunday Services available every Sunday at 10 am in addition to in-person services. Details about upcoming Sundays can be found on our Services page.
Where are we going next on our journey?
The Parish of St Laurence is currently in a period of discernment, as we transition from Rev. Anna’s leadership and ministry to create space and ideas for new ministry and leadership. This is an intentional time to both mark the ending of a remarkable mutual ministry these past many years, reflect on where St. Laurence is as a parish right now, and begin to imagine what new thing might be emerging as the parish moves forward.
To help us move forward, we have engaged the services of the Rev. Don McLeod, a well known development facilitator. During this period, the Rev. Dr. Jane Rowland will serve us as our Interim Priest.
Our process plan began in January 2021 with Part 1 – Discernment: Conversations about Ministry in a Liminal Time and Sharing Stories about St. Laurence from 2005-2020, and will continue in the fall of 2021 with Part 2 – Clarifying Purpose and Engaging the Future: Who Do We Choose to Be?
