Sunday and Weekday Worship at St. Helen's

New COVID safety requirements when attending Worship and Church Events 

Earlier this week we received a letter from Bishop John Stephens regarding updated orders from the Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry.  

As we will see increasing in-person attendance at our worship services this holy season, we will continue existing precautions and will be implementing new requirements for worship designed to keep us all safe and as healthy as possible. 

Effective immediately, all in-person participants and attendees at worship services, coffee hour and other organised church meetings or events must be fully vaccinated and be able to show Provincial or Federal proof of vaccination.  

This includes any visitors to St Helen’s worship services over the Advent and Christmas season.  

If you are not vaccinated, I encourage you to join worship via the livestream on Sunday mornings.

We are also now required to wear our masks (unless we are speaking or singing solo) during worship.

We hope and pray for an end to this pandemic, but in the meantime, we must continue to support one another and love one another and do what we can to limit transmission.

I am available for conversation and pastoral support should you or your family have any questions or concerns about these protocols. 

With gratitude and affection,  

Philippa Segrave-Pride  

Interim Priest in Charge

The Holy Eucharist is celebrated every Sunday at 10am.  
Sunday morning is our main time of gathering for worship and fellowship.  We are multi-generational, multi-cultural, and inclusive.  Baptisms occur around six times a year at our main service and anointing for healing takes place every week.  For more about Sunday Mornings please click here.

Evensong takes place on a Sunday Evening at various times of the year at 7pm
This is a quiet meditative time of worship to give thanks for the week that has been and prepare for the week ahead.  We often use the music of Taizé within the structure of evening prayer.  Notice of the service will show on the Events page and in the weekly notices when they occurr.  For more about Evensong, please click here.
