Outdoor Worship

We practice contemplative ecology, meeting for worship outdoors year-round, rain or shine, at locations around our watershed.

We meet for worship weekly on the late afternoon or early evening each Saturday, as well as one Saturday morning a month with friends and Indigenous allies, at Kwekwecnewtxw, the traditional Coast Salish Watch House, on Burnaby Mountain. We also hold regular meetings and various activities at other times throughout the month. Through outdoor worship, we seek transformative encounters with the species and geography of the Fraser River to Salish Sea basin, and the wider Cascadia bioregion. We explore wilderness, sustainability, and justice themes in Christian scriptures and Anglican social teaching, and we learn about our roots and roles as individuals and as a church, in the multi-racial, labour, and Indigenous-Settler history of lower-mainland British Columbia.
