Welcome to the Anglican Parish of St. John the Baptist, Cobble Hill
You do not have to be baptized, or familiar with church procedures, to be welcome among us. If we can help you by praying for you, whether you come to church or not, please contact our priest the Rev. Canon Dr. John Alfred Steele.

We are an Anglican parish in the Diocese of British Columbia, and a member of the Anglican Church of Canada.

 

Worship during the time of Covid 19 restrictions
It is a tough time in our human history right now... but we are here for you through this difficult and challenging period of Covid 19.

As you can imagine things are a tad different with respect to worship currently. During normal conditions we hold 2 on-site services on Sundays; 8 AM and 10 AM, and we offer worship at 11 AM Wednesday.

However, things are anything but normal and we have moved to holding our worship service to once on Sunday only through a Zoom broadcast at 10 AM. To connect to Sunday worship through the Zoom link please contact the office by phone or email us

Please know that we have a vibrant prayer ministry and we would be pleased to pray for you. These prayer request are held in confidence. Please contact Rev. Deborah through the office for further information or contact the rector, The Rev'd Canon Dr. John Alfred Steele directly.

Our Patronal Festival - June 24

Did you know we celebrate the birth of St John the Baptist - just after the spring solstice as the days are getting shorter and John proclaimed in John 3.30 "He must increase but I must decrease."?

We celebrate the birth of Jesus after the winter solstice because the days are getting longer and "the true light has come into the world and the darkness will not overcome it".

The commemoration of the saints is an important part of our Anglican tradition. We commemorate the saints and acknowledge their contribution to the life of the Church through the inspiration they exemplify through Christ's living example found in their lives.  We acknowledge their lives on the date of their death - which we also do for St John the Baptist on Aug 29th.
