We invite you to join us for a livestreamed choral evensong, an opportunity for quiet, reflection and prayer as we celebrate the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple.
The service will be livestreamed to our Facebook page beginning at 5:30 pm and will be available to watch below.
The order of service is available to download below if you wish to follow along.
Please note: Due to the Provincial Health Orders issued on November 19, 2020, there is no opportunity to attend the service in-person.
In our worship we use language which is poetic and filled with metaphor and wonder – realising that any language about God is limited. We use some ancient words which may seem odd, or may seem to refer to God as male, or in terms which elsewhere we might not choose to use. The poetry and the metaphor are there not to restrict or define our understanding of God, but to remind us that our words are never enough to talk about the Divine: instead we use the beauty of the words and music in our worship to help us glimpse just a little of the God beyond all words.
If you would like to and as you are able, please consider supporting the ongoing work of St. John the Divine by donating through Canada Helps.
