At St. Tim’s, we explore our faith as a community. The diversity of our worship is reflected in our mission statement: Living our Faith in Jesus Christ through Open Hearts, Open Minds and Open Arms. We strive for an approach to worship that is lively and inclusive, and preaching that is relevant to our journey.
There are many opportunities for Worship

Youth at St Timothy’s
(TBD when youth programme decided)
St. Timothy’s is blessed with a wonderful and inspirational music program. The church choir flourishes under the direction of Ed Connell (keyboardist for the Canadian National Ballet, director of the men’s chorus Forté, organist, pianist accompanist, composer and arranger). We celebrate our spirituality with a wide variety of musical genres – folk, spiritual and classical as well as the traditional music of an Anglican service. The choir is accompanied on a recently installed, four manual digital organ, which can faithfully reproduce the sound of three world renowned european cathedral instruments.
To be confirmed is to be received into full membership of the Anglican Church. It may happen at any stage of life when the candidate is old enough to renew the promises that were made at their baptism. Most candidates for confirmation are in their early teens and St. Timothy’s holds regular confirmation classes to prepare young people. For adults we provide a more personalized approach linked to your experience and familiarity with the Anglican Church. If you or a family member are interested in being confirmed contact one of the pastoral staff.
