Welcome to St. Augustine's Marpole!
Worship with us Sundays at 10am. Everyone is welcome!
We are a community of open minds, open hearts and open arms. Come as you are, and be fully who you are. You are welcome here!
We acknowledge with respect and gratitude that we worship on the traditional, ancestral and unceded lands of the Coast Salish people, in particular the Musqueam Nation. Let us pray that we may live more deeply into the calls to action from Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission. May the living Christ leads us all on pathways of reconciliation and peace.
Sundays at 10am, masks are now optional. Online services will continue - both live-streamed and recorded - for those who worship with us at home.

New Pollinator Boulevard Garden!
Together with our Marpole neighbours, St. A's has planted a new boulevard garden. We have planted native BC plants which attract butterflies and bees, supporting these struggling populations and helping to sustain our fragile local ecosystem.
Helping Butterflies, Bees & the Environment
St. A's garden is very happy to be part of the Butterflyway Project, an initiative of the David Suzuki Foundation. We plant native and other plants that attract and help sustain our local butterfly and bee populations. Click on the link below for more information from Rev. Katherine's recent workshop:
