Sunday Services

8:15 AM  Sunday Traditional Service

A said service from p. 230 of the Book of Alternative Services. It contains two hymns, a full sermon, and is a wonderfully meditative way to begin one’s week.

10:00 AM Contemporary Sunday Service

A contemporary Sunday service for families of all ages, with lively music and a full choir. This service also has a nursery, Sunday School, and Sunday Teen Chat so there is something for everyone!

*During the summer months of July and August, there will only be one Sunday service at 9:30 a.m.

Wednesday Service

Beginning at 9:30 a.m., this said Eucharist is a wonderful spiritual refresher during the middle of the week.  Appropriate for all who want to take a moment and connect with God, we would invite you to this special time of prayer and fellowship.

Evensong Services

The Evening Prayer service, or “Evensong”, is an Anglican tradition where the service is held in the late afternoon or early evening and is rendered chorally – that is, most of the services is sung.  Our Evensong services occur one Sunday each month from October through to May or June.  The services begins at 7:30 p.m. in our sanctuary with a different “theme” each month.  Everyone is welcome.

The 2018/19 Evensong schedule is as follows:

December 16th – Traditional Festival of Lessons and Carols (7:30 p.m.)

Weddings

Weddings are a moment in life to be celebrated with those who have shared their life with you.  They should be a time of joy, celebration, and hope and not of stress, anxiety, or fear.  At St. Simon’s, we do all that we can to make your day go as smoothly as possible.

Our beautiful, spacious, and air-conditioned chapel is a place of peace and hope where you, the one you love, and those who are important to you can gather in reverence and thanksgiving to mark this important step in your lives together.  Additionally, our lovely and quiet prayer garden is perfect for those after-the ceremony pictures with your wedding party, family, and guests.

If you are interested in making St. Simon’s the place where you say “I do”, please contact us.

Baptisms

At St. Simon’s, we recognize that having a child is a special time in one’s life.  We also recognize that having a child is a time when people often think about life and its meaning in new way,s and as a part of that want to make sure that their child begins a journey with God through the sacrament of baptism.

We welcome all inquiries around baptism and want to make sure that your child’s baptism is a special moment when you can gather as a family, celebrate the gift that God has given you, and ask God to be part of your life as you embrace the challenges and joys of parenthood.

Funerals

Saying goodbye to someone that you love can be one of the most difficult things that you do in life.  It is important at times like these to honour those who have gone on before you in an appropriate manner.

At St. Simon’s we know how difficult these times can be and we would humbly offer our expertise in this area by helping you to create a meaningful service which commemorates, gives thanks, and asks God’s care for the one you are saying goodbye to.  To speak to one of our clergy about a funeral or memorial service please contact us.
