9:30am Sunday Service

Sunday Morning Worship is held each Sunday at St. Simon’s at 9:30am.

Wednesday Morning Services are held 9:30am on Wednesdays

The Diocese has loosened some of the COVID protocols for churches in the Diocese of Niagara.

At St. Simon’s you will notice the following changes:

  • The capacity limits have been lifted – so feel free to bring a friend!
  • We are no longer maintaining a list of those attending.
  • You can sit where you wish, with the exception of the front pews, which will remain roped off in order to maintain a 2m distance between the congregation and Fr Malcolm, readers, intercessors, announcers, and people removing their masks to consume the communion host.
  • Everyone will continue to be required to wear a mask, preferably a medical mask, while in the building. Malcolm when preaching and readers, intercessors and announcers when reading, will be permitted to remove their masks.

Virtual Wednesday Service

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. Services are posted on our YouTube channel and the Sermon section of our website.

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.

There are no Evensong services scheduled at this time, due to COVID-19.

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 ways 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.
