Worship with St. Matthew’s

Communion Service by Zoom for April 11th, 2021, 2nd in Easter

Easter Season Plans

April 18th: No Service by St. Matthew’s; you are invited to participate in worship with the Bishop or other parishes around the diocese.

April 25th and afterward: A word-based mini liturgy will be posted here by 9:30am CDT AND a simplified in-person Communion Service will take place outdoors in Agnes Green Space on St. Matthew’s Ave. at 10:30am CDT. Exceptions, when we take part in a service of the broader diocese, will be posted.

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.

Contact us if you’d like to receive the weekly emails, which include an Order of Service which can be used for home worship, along with prayer requests and announcements.

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

Worship during Covid-19 Distancing

As long as we need to be 6 feet apart, about 1/2 of our average Sunday numbers could meet in our sanctuary. For the forseeable future, we will continue to offer a simplified outdoor Communion liturgy and an online word-based mini liturgy on Sundays.

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.
