God is Love.
Whoever lives in love
lives in God
and God in them.
Welcome to St. Augustine's Marpole!
Worship with us Sundays at 10am
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.
