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
During this time of physical distancing in person worship is limited to one service of Holy Eucharist at 10:00am on Sundays. We gather together via the wonders of technology. The Zoom link is available on the home page or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Our week day morning prayer services take place at 9:30am, Monday to Friday. To receive the service information and Zoom link, please email email@example.com or see the Zoom link on our home page.

Children & Youth at St Timothy’s
At St. Timothy’s we believe that the Christian faith is a lifelong journey of growth and discovery.
Due to COVID-19 in-person children’s programming is suspended until further notice. All our programs for children and youth will take place over Zoom, until the situation changes sufficiently to allow us to meet in person at the church. If you would like to have your child participate in our programs for young people, please email Elaine Vanderwerf, our Youth Minister, to be sent the Zoom link. firstname.lastname@example.org
Sunday School (children up to age 10): Our Sunday School Zoom will take place every week at 11:15am. We are following a lectionary based curriculum which means that our lessons will be the same as those in the Sunday Worship Service. There will be scripture, songs and activities and prayers as well as a space for the children to interact with their peers. This will last about half an hour.
Jr. Youth Group (grades 5 – 8): Our Junior Youth Group will meet on the first and third Friday of each month at 7:00pm. We will play games and do activities together that are fun and interactive. There will also be a “Thought for the Day” and a prayer time as we learn about God and care for each other. This is scheduled for 1.5 hours.
Sr. Youth Group (grades 9 – 12 +): Our Senior Youth Group will meet on the second and fourth Fridays of each month at 7:00pm. We will play games but there is also opportunity for students to engage in conversations about life and purpose. This is a safe place for young people to ask questions and to learn. This is scheduled for 2 hours.
Special Events: On the 5th Friday of the month (when there is one) and at other special times of the year (Christmas and Holy Week) there will be unique programming for children, youth and families.
St. Timothy’s is blessed with a wonderful and inspirational music program. The music program 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. We have recently installed a 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.
