Worship with St. Matthew’s

PLEASE NOTE that for the next two weeks, July 18th and 25th, St. Matthew’s is not providing worship services in person or online. You are invited to join in one of the online services of the wider church family at https://rupertslandnews.ca/online-services-in-ruperts-land/.

Hymns, a prayer and a reading for the 18th and the 25th will be available on our Facebook page (you do not need an account to access this) beginning at 9:30am CDT those mornings.

Mini-service for July 11th, 2021 — Thanks to Phil Barnett for sharing with us:

Opening Hymn: Seek Not in Distant, Ancient Hills (v 2-4)

Closing Hymn: Healer of Our Every Ill (v 3-4)

FOR THE TIME BEING two ways of engaging in worship are made available each Sunday:

Outdoor Communion Services are taking place each Sunday at 10:30am CDT in Agnes Green Space, at St. Matthew’s Avenue and Agnes Street. Please wear a mask and maintain 6 feet distance; bring a chair and one to share, if you are able — we have some extras. If weather makes it too difficult, we’ll meet for a virtual Communion Service by Zoom videoconferencing instead. Children’s Time with Wiebke will take place as part of the outdoor services.

Each Sunday there is also an online mini-service (as in the video above) available beginning 9:30am CDT here and on our Facebook page. It is word-based rather than liturgical, comprised of a Collect Prayer, a Reading, a full Homily (sermon), and a Closing Prayer/Blessing.

Past worship videos are available on our Facebook page.

As always, to make an offering, please see our Offerings page.

Contact us if you don’t receive the weekly emails and announcements but would like to. You are invited to share prayer requests with the parish as well.

Sunday service videos with our sibling parishes are available on the diocesan website.

We grieve the passing of The Reverend Deacon Lorna Howell, May 12th, 2021.

Rest eternal grant unto her, O Lord; and let light perpetual shine upon her.

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