About Us

Welcome to the Church of the Holy Saviour.

The People of the Church of the Holy Saviour are called by God;
To work together as a servant community. We are empowered by the Holy Spirit to follow Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. Following the words of Christ and His actions, we joyfully bear witness; In the world to the transforming power of God’s love.

All Anglican worship is grounded in common prayer. At Holy Saviour, we use both the The Book of Alternative Services and the Book of Common Prayer, the traditional text of the Anglican Church.

What We Believe

Mission Statement of the Anglican Church of Canada

As a partner in the worldwide Anglican Communion and in the universal Church, we proclaim and celebrate the gospel of Jesus Christ in worship and action.

We value our heritage of biblical faith, reason, liturgy, tradition, bishops and synods, and the rich variety of our life in community.

We acknowledge that God is calling us to greater diversity of membership, wider participation in ministry and leadership, better stewardship in God’s creation and a stronger resolve in challenging attitudes and structures that cause injustice.

Guided by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to respond to this call in love and service and so more fully live the life of Christ.

The Anglican Church of Canada does not define its doctrine in a single confession. Our beliefs are articulated in our liturgies, as well as in these selected statements:
