The Anglican church of St. Mary the Virgin, Sapperton has been ministering to the people of New Westminster and surrounding communities for over 150 years. We provide spiritual development in a warm, friendly environment. There is room to grow here and wonderful opportunities for you and your family.
We are a nurturing, supportive faith based community that welcomes the involvement of everyone. Our church family comes from all walks of life. We are a multicultural congregation with diverse backgrounds and experiences, of all ages, singles and families alike. There is a place for you at St. Mary's.
We are proud of our heritage and also proud to be a vibrant, growing Christian community. Following the Anglican practice of combining scripture, tradition, and reason, St. Mary's is rich in ceremony and custom, yet we take a modern, thoughtful approach to religion, encouraging discernment and questions while following the teachings of Jesus in our search for the Divine.
At St. Mary's, we recognize that each individual's spiritual journey is a deeply personal one and all who enter our doors are invited to participate at their own comfort level in an atmosphere of acceptance and friendship. Whether you are a life-long Anglican, new to the church, or just wondering what role faith might play in your life, please know that you are most welcome here.
"And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another..." Hebrews 10:24-25
