Searching for more than your current church offers?
Come discover the prayer and worship of your ancestors. For 1500 years this is the worship of Western Europe up until the middle of the last century (1960's). Evensong and morning prayer are even older as Psalms are chanted, a practice that goes back to ancient Israel. We invite you to journey with us and discover!
In the last 3 decades church life in Canada has gone from a common place experience to often a rare event around Easter and Christmas. There are a number of reasons for this. For some it is that their church ceased to be relevant to their daily life. For others, worship became less focused on God and more on the social aspect. Still for others, the faith they had been taught was no longer held by their church. For others the culture and ethnicity of their parents church became an impediment in their relationship with God.
And yet people continue to want more out of life. Not the materialistic aspect which often leaves us wanting, but a sense of something more. A sense of the spiritual which we have lost from our culture. If you are searching for more in your life, a connection to God, worshipping Him as we have since the beginning of the Church, then we invite you to pray with us!
Whether you are just beginning your search or you have been searching for what seems forever, you are more than welcome.
Come discover spirituality, solid biblical teaching and coherent doctrine. We offer a home where the teaching of the apostles is upheld with traditional worship which focuses on offering praise to God. All of our services are in English, which makes us one of only two fully English speaking Orthodox Churches in Edmonton.
