The feeling that the church is home, that a warm greeting and a generous, happy spirit are the hallmarks of it's membership, that the moment you walk in you are "part of the family" - these are the criteria for a healthy and vibrant parish. Anyone with a soul generated by God, with a heart created from love, is a child of God - and thus "part of the family".
Our doors are wide open for visitors who would become family, and it is our honour to welcome anyone to come and worship with us - wherever you are on your faith journey - as part of our family. We invite you to consider joining us for one of our services, and we hope that you will enjoy your time with us.
