Welcome to the Light of Christ Church !
We are thrilled that you have decided to check out our website and learn about our wonderful Church. We are a community of faith dedicated to loving and serving our Lord Jesus Christ, each other and our community. We take seriously our call to 'Shine as a beacon of hope' and embody the ministry of Jesus.
Our strength is our commitment to Jesus, to prayer, and to community. We pray together, eat together, laugh together, play together, study and grow together. We are committed to caring for one another. And we are eager to open our hearts to you and share our life of faith with you no matter where you are on your faith journey. When people come to visit us on Sunday mornings, the comment we most often hear is that they felt very welcomed. People feel at home with us.
Our worship is joyful, casual yet traditional, and both ancient and contemporary. We sing hymns to the organ or guitar, and the latest worship music with guitar or keyboard. Preaching is soundly Biblical, relevant, practical, challenging and uplifting. Our aim in worship is to give glory to God and to grow in our faith.
We do not belong to a denomination, but to a missionary society called 'The Anglican Mission in the Americas' specifically 'TheAM Canada'. Our organization is built on the relational Celtic model of ministry rather than the institutional Roman model.
'TheAM Canada promotes authentic, growing relationships with Jesus and one another that lead us to reach out to others in love. We are committed to graceful, organic and visionary service empowered by God’s Spirit. AM Canada churches emphasize discipleship (getting to know and follow Jesus in a deeper way daily) and mission (reaching out to others who don’t yet know and follow Jesus). We value diversity in expressing our faith, a faith that is rooted in our relationship with God, obedience to His Word, sensitivity to His Spirit and connections with other Christians locally, regionally, and internationally.'
We invite you to come and see what we believe and experience the joy of our worship and community of faith in Jesus Christ.
