You are warmly invited to worship with us at St. Clement's.

The main worship on Sunday mornings at 9:45 a.m. is a contemporary eucharist or holy communion in the Anglican style. We sing a lively mixture of new and traditional favourite hymns that fit the theme of the bible texts for the day. Our sermons are based on the Bible text and applied to how we live in today's complex world. We are reverent and relaxed, not formal. We work to have worship give voice to our praise of God, our gratitude for the gift of life, and to our human struggles as we respond to a loving God.

As Anglicans, we encourage intelligent inquiry into our faith, not requiring agreement on a set of beliefs but acknowledging we are on a journey together to discover God's presence in the holiness and messiness of life.

We are a mix of ages and stages of life.  Children are welcome in our worship.  We have a nursery available as well as our regular Children's program "GODLY PLAY", Montessori-based Biblical Story Telling with trained teachers for school-aged children and youth.

If you would like to meet with Lynne McNaughton, priest at St. Clement's, call her at 604-780-1420... to talk about your spiritual journey.

Did you know? Lynne is also very active at the national level of the Anglican Church of Canada, where she is a member of the Council of General Synod (CoGS) as well as the Church's  Deputy Prolocutor. Here are the highlights from the last meeting of CoGS, at which the members celebrated and prayed with Archbishop and Primate Fred Hiltz upon the occasion of the 10th anniversary of becoming the Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada.

Worship and Walk! Sunday September 24   We are invited, as our worship that morning, to participate in the Truth and Reconciliation Walk.  Please see our calendar page for details, and join us! The Walk starts at 9:30 a.m., and many of us will be worshipping at the Cathedral's 8 a.m. service before that (a light breakfast will follow).

There will be no morning service at St. Clement's on September 24. Those unable to attend the Walk are invited to a Reconciliation-themed Sunday service at 10 a.m. at St. Martin's Church, 195 East Windsor Rd. We encourage you to learn more about the Walk, and sign up for the North Vancouver Anglicans and Lutherans team entry if you'd like to lend your name to the cause!

“Reconciliation includes anyone with an open mind and an open heart who is willing to look into the future with a new way” – Chief Joseph

St. Clement's has had a T-coil hearing loop installed! Our new audio system is fully functional, making it much easier for hearing aid users to hear everything clearly.  Many people's hearing aids switch to a T-coil setting automatically, while some people need to manually switch their hearing aids to this setting. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask Lynley, our friendly music director!
