Our mission is to be a warm and welcoming community centred in spiritual growth and worship; and to be a tangible witness of God's love through Christian outreach.
We are a member of the Anglican Diocese of British Columbia, those Anglican churches found on Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, and Kingcome Inlet on the Sunshine Coast.
In 2015, we adopted a Vision as a diocese: Renewed Hearts, Renewed Spirits, Renewed People. Since then, we have embarked on a vision fulfilment journey to discern how God will guide us towards seeing our vision come to life in our parishes, communities and regions.
Our Diocesan Vision
As a diocese, we are also part of the Anglican Church of Canada and the worldwide Anglican Communion. The Anglican Church of Canada is also in a ‘full communion’ partnership with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada.
The Diocese of British Columbia is a regional expression of the Anglican Church of Canada, part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, and one part of the whole body of Christ. Established in 1892, the Diocese of British Columbia originally covered the entire Canadian province of British Columbia. Over time as the population of the province grew, new dioceses were formed. The Diocese of British Columbia is now one of five dioceses of the Ecclesiastical Province of BC & Yukon, and includes Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands of the Salish Sea (Strait of Georgia), and Kingcome Inlet.
