The Church of St Paul is a Covenanted Congregation of Anglicans, Uniteds, and Lutherans in Barriere. In 2008, members of the Anglican Church of the Redeemer, the Barriere United Church congregation, and people in the Barriere area connected to the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada began worshipping together and exploring what it might mean to become an Ecumenical Shared Ministry.
May 23, 2010 saw the coming together of the three denominations to sign a Memorandum of Understanding. The name stands for Serving Together as a Parish of Anglicans, Uniteds, and Lutherans. This venture has been undertaken with great joy and blessings from all three denominations!
Worship and Fellowship Time
Sunday service begins at 11:00 am. The Eucharist or Communion is celebrated each Sunday excepting those when no ordained minister is present. For the most part, we follow the Revised Common Lectionary for our scripture readings. They will be found on the “This Week” page.
A fellowship time follows the service. Once a month, the fellowship time is extended with a potluck lunch. This usually happens on the first Sunday of the month. It sometimes is postponed depending on holidays. Check the calendar for changes.
The Church Women’s group runs a Thrift Shop in buildings connected to the back of the church. For information about it and The Annex Thrift Shop that is located in downtown Barriere, go to this page.
The congregation of the Church of St Paul created a congregational goal in January of 2011. This goal is to deepen our relationship with God through deepening our relationships with each other. We’re not exactly sure how this will play out in our relationship here at the Church of St Paul, but it is what we strive toward!
