Anglican Worship

St Margaret is part of the Anglican Communion, Diocese of Toronto. Our worship is structured, and we use PowerPoint. You are invited to participate as you feel comfortable. We stand, sit, kneel, read scripture, sing, pray and share communion (bread and wine) as part of our worship. We are called to worship God in spirit and truth and we believe God takes great delight in true worship.

We offer a rich diversity of worship experiences to reflect and to meet the needs of our community. We currently have limited in-person seating and unlimited seating on Zoom every Sunday at 10:30 am. All are invited to participate, as they are able and feel comfortable.  

First Sunday is our more traditional service; Second Sunday we offer the ministry of healing through the Laying on of Hands and Anointing, administered by our two trained lay anointers; Third Sunday is our intergenerational contemporary service, we celebrate birthdays and other blessings; and the Fourth and Fifth Sunday is a blend of traditional and contemporary music.

Kids in Church

Weekly Children’s Program

Sundays at 10:30 am on Zoom (join the main Zoom and there is a breakout room for the children's program).

Screened volunteers offer children’s programming every Sunday, using zoom or in-person (please bring your own device/table), from September through June for children ages 3-12 years. Children get the opportunity to know, love and follow Jesus while having fun and making friends.

Prior to COVID-19, several times a year, the children and teachers play leadership roles in all-age worship services and remain for the entire service. Children also participated in worship services each week.

Weekly Bible Study on Zoom

We are the church as we serve, pray and grow to love God, our neighbour and self.

Bible study is held Thursdays from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m on Zoom. Reflections on the New Testament reading from the previous Sunday. Followed by a prayer meeting at 7:45 p.m.

Prayer

“In the Anglican tradition, we believe that our worship and our prayers and our way of living are all intimately intertwined: what we do in our prayer affects our beliefs, which in turn affects our very way of being in the world. Praying shapes believing shapes living as faithful Christians in a world torn apart by social ills.” (Collects for the #BlackLivesMatter Movement — and Beyond by Kenji Kuramitsu) 

We are a praying community. Each day and week, as part of our private lives and public worship, we pray for the needs of our parish family, community and world in which we live, move and breathe. If you have a prayer concern, we would love to pray with you and for you.
