St. Stephen's Anglican Church West Vancouver

St. Stephen's Anglican Church serves the West Vancouver community and is part of the Diocese of New Westminster of the Anglican Church of Canada. We are local, national, and international.  We come from different cultures, backgrounds, ages, and faith journeys.  And all of us are equal parts of our inclusive, prayerful, and welcoming Church. 

Our church building is also a community-hub with public music performances, a childcare facility, and meeting space for local groups and organisations.  

       To support our Provincial effort to combat COVID19, we ask that visitors to St Stephen's Church follow all public health guidelines including wearing masks and physical distancing. We ask those who are not currently vaccinated against COVID19 to please consider limiting their in-person participation, and to watch our Sunday services online at this time.   

Our church community continues to be active in supporting our local community.  Please support our work and ministry though a financial gift.  Donations sent to the church office are applicable for a tax receipt.

We are happy to be able to meet in person again. We thank everyone who has made this possible, and especially those that look after us including doctors, nurses and all other essential workers. You have gone over and above what is expected of you and shown patience and resilience in these very difficult and sometimes overwhelming times.

Father God,
     The World as we knew it is gone, and for what feels like such a long time we have experienced so much hardship during this Pandemic. As we prepare to walk into the future we pray for the “new normal” to come. May our hearts be unified in You more than ever. May the tender moments of seeing someone again in person be all the more rich and treasured. May the reunions, interactions, and moments ahead be held in such intentionality and may we turn to You in sincere gratitude. Help us to come out of this Pandemic better, not bitter. Help us to become more considerate of others, more mindful of how we can help one another, and how we can serve You and Your children well. We thank You that no matter how dark the night may get, there is the hope of the dawn to come.
          In Jesus Name,
               Amen
