Worship with St. Matthew’s

The first Sunday of Lent

Ash Wednesday. Too bad it didn’t show us all, only the speakers; but it was good to be “together!”

This contemplative video by our bishop, of preparation for Ash Wednesday, is well worth the time; ends with the beautiful hymn A Spendthrift Lover Is the Lord.

Video resources for Sunday worship are usually available by 9:30am Central time on Sunday mornings so that you can worship at home. Past worship videos are available on our Facebook page.

Worship during Covid-19 Distancing

Under current restrictions, we are allowed ten people at a time in the sanctuary (10% of our space’s capacity), including the musician and priest. We would still need to provide video resources for home worship, and are considering our ability to offer both somehow, with limited time and other resources. It is likely that we will soon begin live-streaming an in-person service Sunday mornings; but not immediately.

Text resources (ie bulletins) for home worship are being emailed out if you prefer to not to use the video; contact us if you’d like to receive the emails, which also include prayer requests and announcements.

Livestreamed Sunday services with the bishop and other worship resources are available on the diocesan website.

vestry meeting with pandemic restrictions, pre mask requirement

Use of Anglican spaces and Anglican gatherings in the Diocese of Rupert’s Land was suspended March 16th; please refer to the diocesan Covid-19 page for updates. We gathered for worship outdoors in the fall and hope to gather indoors eventually. When we can, public health requirements mean restricted numbers and prohibitions on singing, visiting and coffee-time.

We are still a church family, held together by a common Spirit and a common commitment.  We will help support one another, and we will continue to be a people who pray, grow, and love. We seek to be an expressive, relational church even when we’re not together.
