Our Parish includes two congregations or communities of faith:  Trinity Shared Ministry in Clearwater and the Church of St Paul in Barriere.  Both congregations are Ecumenical Shared Ministries relating to The United Church of Canada, The Anglican Church of Canada, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada.

For information about our denominations, see the Denominational News page and the individual pages for each denomination found in the “About Us” menu under “Denominational News”.  Current news, events, and work of the denominations are included in written reports that are found on the Denominational News page as well as in the posts appearing under “Latest News” at the bottom of this page.


Our in-person worship services are held at the following times and places.

Sunday, November 27th begins the Season of Advent. The themes of the four Sundays are hope, peace, joy, and love with another candle being lit each week.


Safety Protocols:

Currently, we are asking those who attend worship to wear masks and to be mindful of keeping a physical distance of two metres in most circumstances.  Those speaking to the entire congregation may remove their masks.  Offerings are collected in a basket at the entrance to the church.  We ask that people who are not feeling well to refrain from attending.

While we have in-person worship services, prerecorded video services will not be posted to our YouTube channel.  Sufficient resources are not available to provide both in-person and on-line services.



A major outreach and stewardship programme is the St. Paul’s Thrift Shop.  For information about it and The Annex Thrift Shop, go to this page.





Opportunities to Share Our Blessings
beyond Our Communities of Faith

This post gives the links to our denominations’ on-line gift catalogues.

The Territory of the People is still accepting donations for the communities within the Territory that were devastated by fire and flood last year.  There are two separate funds:  the Lytton Fire Fund and the Nicola Valley Flood Fund.  The need for funds is great and more than the Territory resources can supply. Donations can be made by using the “Donate Now” button on the Territory website (found in the top right corner or near the bottom on the right of the home page – it takes you to CanadaHelps.org for making the donation) or by cheque made payable to the Territory of the People (mailing address:  360 Nicola Street, Kamloops, BC  V2C 2P5).  All donations are to be earmarked “Lytton Fire Fund” or “Nicola Valley Flood Fund.”  If donating online, put the name of the fund to which you are choosing to contribute in the “Send a message to this charity (optional)” space.  An official tax receipt will be issued for donations from individuals and non charitable organizations.  For more information, please contact the Territory office: office@territory.anglican.ca or by phone: 778-471-5573.  Please keep the Territory in your prayers as it continues to deal with the diverse needs of all those affected by these disastrous events.
