Mission Statement-Adopted by Parish Council September 2017
WHO ARE WE?
St. John the Apostle Anglican Church is a diverse, multi-cultural, multi-generational faith community. We are very accepting and welcoming of newcomers. There are numerous opportunities for friendship and service and learning.
The parish of St. John the Apostle has been part of the community since 1899. St. John’s was dedicated on January 20th, 1899. Although there have been improvements and upgrades over the years the church still sits on the property that was donated by Captain Clarke of the Royal Engineers.
St, John’s has had an active Anglican Church Women’s (ACW) since the doors opened in 1899 and the group still continues and thrives to this day.
Services are held at 8:30 am and 10:00 am each Sunday. Please check our calendar for special service dates through out the year.
Service to the city and the world around us continues in a number of important ways as it has done for more than a century:
The Family Food Bank is held on the first and third Thursday of the month helping families in the Tri-city area by providing a gathering place for friendship and mutual support along with a nourishing lunch and groceries to help supplement the families.
The parish also provides space for 2 AA groups, a Korean congregation that meets in our space and worships on Sunday afternoons and recently we have also provided a place for the Polish Full Gospel Church to worship.
St. John’s hosts special events through the year. We have an annual Bazaar in November, a monthly Senior’s Tea held on the 4th Monday of the month are just a few events to mention.
You can check out our Facebook page by going to St John the Apostle (Port Moody) where you can see pictures posted and read up to date information about events and activities.
Sunday School is offered at the 10am service as well as a nursery complete with a sound system so they can participate in the service.
We would love for you to come and be a part of our community where you will find an inclusive atmosphere filled with those young and old. Everyone is welcome !
We recently welcomed members of the former parish of St Margaret of Scotland in Burnaby, and so we are now the “new St John’s,” as we continue to become a new parish, strengthened and enriched by each other’s presence.
