WELCOMING YOU HOME
St. John’s is a lively parish focused on the centre of the Christian faith in the life and teachings of Jesus and in the Confession and hope-filled cry of the church around the world that “Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.”
As a parish of the Diocese of Edmonton in the Anglican Church of Canada, we utilize the two main prayer books of our communion — the Book of Common Prayer and the Book of Alternative Services — and worship in both ‘classic’ and more ‘contemporary’ modes in terms of music and language.
Following Christ in
Word. Care. Prayer.
This statement is what St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church has been built upon.
Those who worship at SJE come from a variety of diverse backgrounds but as we come together Sunday by Sunday - Week by Week, we are united.
United by our common faith in Christ and in our desire to hear and to follow Christ’s way in the world.
This means we are invited to become:
Active in hearing the Word through Holy Scripture.
Active in CARING - for one another and for neighbours near and far.
Active in PRAYER - as individuals & with the whole church through the Sunday liturgy. Active in MISSION - as we seek to reflect the love of Christ throughout our lives.
This activity will be lived out distinctly by each of us: sometimes quietly, sometimes obviously, but at all times (we pray!) with an awareness of the Grace and Peace of Christ among us.
