WELCOME TO ALL SAINTS' ANGLICAN PARISH!

WHO WE ARE AS A PARISH

All Saints’ Anglican Parish is a caring church family that worships God in reverence and wonder. We serve God and our neighbours through music, liturgy, support, and outreach.

The All Saints’ Parish family is caring,
generous and appreciative,
and invites you to join us for worship!


We are located at the intersection of Vidal Street North and Charlotte Street in Sarnia in a large High Victorian structure that is treasured. Our parish was formed through the amalgamation of St George’s, Sarnia; St John’s, Sarnia; and Christ Church, Corunna.

Our Sunday energy is focused on our worship services at 8:00 a.m., which is a traditional-language said-service, and at 10:30 a.m., which is a choral service. We enjoy fellowship during our coffee hour after the second service. Our worship is directed towards learning to know and be aware of God’s love, which is available to us through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice at Calvary, and God’s acceptance of His sacrifice for us by raising him from the dead.

Through the rest of the week, our energy is focused on activities that provide opportunities for parishioners and outside friends to increase our bonding in God’s love through work and play together through such activities as Bible study, a walking club, a book club, card and board games, and workshops on topics of interest to the congregation.

UPCOMING EVENTS

CREATIVE WORD
Friday 8 March

We are eagerly looking forward to another wonderful evening of sharing wine, cheese, snacks, and, of course, the reading and discussing of passages from our favourite books. In the photo below, Mrs Charlotte Vidal, wife of Commander Richard Vidal, a key founder of our predecessor church, St Paul’s, is seen reading from her favourite book at a much earlier Creative Word evening. Please feel free to to join us for what will doubtless be a wonderful Friday evening. Kindly call the office at +15193445167 for the location. All are welcome!

As an interesting historical note, we are located at the intersection of North Vidal Street and Charlotte Street. Vidal is named for Commander Vidal and Charlotte is named for his dear wife. Their eldest daughter, Maria, for whom Maria Street is named, married our first priest, Rev’d Canon George Salter.

GUIDED TOUR OF ART GALLERY
Thursday 1 February

Members of the congregation took good advantage of Jane Hunter’s kind offer of a private, guided tour of the “A Family Palette” exhibition at the Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery. A dedicated docent at the art gallery, Jane Hunter provided us with a true insider’s view of this wonderful exhibit of the art of Frances-Anne Johnston, Franz Johnston and Franklin Arbuckle. Those of us who took part thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Sincere thanks are offered to our talented and knowledgeable docent!

HAM DINNER
Saturday 27 January

As is the case with all of our parish-wide activities, this event was a wonderful success, being a time of fellowship and celebration. Our thanks are offered to Heather Norwood and Sandy Nyp, and their team of hardworking folk. Parishioners and guests alike were heard to say that they look forward to more of these sorts of parish dinners. Well done, Team Ham!
