Westminster-St. Paul’s welcomes you to worship,
Sunday mornings at 10.30am.
As a congregation of the Presbyterian
Church in Canada, Westminster-St. Paul’s is a church in the Reformed Tradition,
which seeks to nurture people toward the development of a life-transforming
relationship with Jesus Christ.
Worship is understood as an encounter
It includes a weekly sermon, whereby God’s Word in the Bible is
interpreted for today, and the regular celebration of holy communion and
baptism, whereby God’s Promises are applied to the People of Faith.
The minister, the Rev. Karla Wübbenhorst, is
the one regularly involved in the preaching and sacramental ministry at
Westminster-St. Paul’s. Worship
includes songs of praise, in styles both ancient and modern, and a focusing on
needs in our community and in the wider world, which needs are taken into the
prayers of the People and into the Church’s programs of outreach.
Currently the preaching is exploring the
Gospel of Mark, the shortest of the four biblical books which chronicle the
life, death and resurrection of Jesus.
The communion service on Nov. 27th marks the Church’s
entry into the season of Advent – a four-week period of expectation prior to
the celebration of Christ’s coming at Christmas.
In 2006, both Christmas and New Year
fall on a Sunday. The church will gather on these days for
its regular Sunday morning worship, but additionally will observe Christmas Eve
with a special service at 7pm, which service will include a substantial
contribution by the choir.
It is hoped
that the Sunday School will also take responsibility for a substantial part of the worship on Sunday
Dec. 18th, by preparing a pageant.
