Meet our people
Our Zion spiritual community is a small group of Christian worshippers with a big heart. We invite and make welcome anyone who would like to visit or join us, regardless of age, ethnicity, faith background, work and family situation, sexual orientation, and so on. We provide a stair lift for those who need one. We believe that each and every person matters, is an equal child of God. We range in age from 3 to 85, have come from Canada, Germany, Guyana, Hungary, Iran, Jamaica, Sri Lanka, the United States, and have various faith backgrounds (or none!). Our worship approach is open and inclusive, progressively traditional yet relaxed, and we celebrate Holy Communion every Sunday. We believe you can take the Bible seriously without taking it literally. And we don’t check our questions, doubts, or brains at the door. We’re at various places on our explorations of what faith and spirituality mean in our lives, and we bring open minds and respect for different places on the journey. Most of us help in some way to provide the worship service, such as setting up the altar, ringing the church bell, reading the lessons, assisting the Pastor, providing refreshments following the service. We invite new members to become active and involved easily, looking for how each person’s interests and gifts connect with what’s needed within the Zion community.
If you have questions, or would like us to know you’re coming, please contact us.
Zion is a parish of the Eastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC). Through the ELCIC, Canadian Lutherans work with other denominations and religions through both the Canadian and the World Councils of Churches on social, environmental, and economic justice issues. In many countries, including Canada, Lutherans have a special relationship with the Anglican Church – thanks to the Waterloo Declaration signed in 2001, the Canadian ELCIC and Anglican churches agreed to be in Full Communion.
