ABOUT US

Who are we?

We are the Anglican Churches serving the communities of Summerside and St. Eleanor's, PEI.

We are here to find and know Jesus Christ in our worship together, in our mutual love of one another, and in our service to our communities and those in need, and to share God's love and the Good News of the Gospel with our neighbours.

There are many opportunities for worship, but the centre of our worshiping life together is at the Altar on Sunday mornings when the Holy Eucharist is celebrated and offered.

 

As Anglicans, we draw from the rich spiritual and devotional heritage of the Book of Common Prayer but also employ more contemporary forms of worship and music on a regular basis.

We seek to form our hearts outside of Sunday mornings by prayer, study, and fellowship, and we offer regular Bible studies and faith-growing courses throughout the year.​

We also have a  long history of outreach to our communities and support of other local ministries that do charitable work. We host a monthly community breakfast in our parish hall, as well as provide volunteers on a regular basis to the Salvation Army soup kitchen.

In September of 2016 we welcomed our Rector, The Rev’d Colin Nicolle and his wife Shannon, into our parish and in Autumn of 2021 we welcomed our new Organist & Choir Director, Sandra Gereau, onto our ministry team and are excited to watch our music ministry grow under her direction.

If you are looking for a church in the Summerside area, we would love to have you visit us. If it's your first time back to church in a while, or your first time ever, please take a look at our What to Expect page to get a sense of what you can expect, and always feel free to contact the Rector, Colin, if you have questions or want someone to talk to.
