The A.C.W. is a community of Anglican Church Women gathered together in Christian service to support and promote the total mission of the church through prayer, work and stewardship. Our purpose is achieved through inspirational and informative programs which are offered at both the parish and diocesan meetings of the A.C.W. In addition to parish concerns, support is given by the members of the A.C.W. to many worthwhile causes.
Membership is open to all women of the Anglican Church who accept the purposes and by-laws of the A.C.W. and who make an annual contribution to the A.C.W. Diocesan budget, either through a local A.C.W. Parish Group, or, where no such group exists, directly to the Treasurer of the A.C.W. Diocesan Board.

ST. JOHN’S MEN’S GROUP
We gather once a month for breakfast and friendly discussion. We get together in good part just to get to know each other.
We are also looking at the possibility of some more focused discussions, and we have contributed to parish life by taking on certain practical projects like the repair of the stage in the parish hall.
Check with the parish office (604-936-7762)about the date and time of the next men’s gathering.
