Let all that you do be done in love
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.

Renos and Repairs......All Done!
With many, many thanks to a grant from the Vancouver Heritage Society, many generous donors and volunteers, and our amazing contractor, our church is looking better than ever! We were able to replace the fascia and shingles at the front of the church, a beautiful new cross has been placed on our bell tower, and our magnificant bell, donated in 1954 by the CPR, was refurbished and polished. The windows on the south side of the church have also been refurbished and reinstalled to help save energy by keeping the heat in. Scroll through our image carousel to have a look!

Contemplative Prayer Group
4th Thursdays, 1-2pm in the sanctuary
We are so happy to have resumed our “Contemplative Prayer on Thursday” service after 20 months in hiatus because of the pandemic! With the service theme of “The Gift of Silence”, six members of the Prayer community gathered using contemplative music, prayer, reflection, stillness and silence to feed our spiritual souls. We have been longing to be in quiet contemplation together after all these months. It was a joy for Rev. Chris to renew this prayer practice in person within the sacred space of the church sanctuary. Many thanks to Verger Sid for his help in the set up.
The empty chair is waiting for you!! Join us on the fourth Thursday of each month. For more information, contact Rev. Chris, 604-619-4824.
Prayers for Ukraine
Rev Chris will be leading prayers for peace in Ukraine at 1:15 every Thursday in the church sanctuary. The prayers will last for 15 minutes. Everyone is welcome - come when you can, and you are welcome to stay for our contemplative prayers afterward on the 4th Thursday of each month.
