Advent begins four weeks before Christmas day, it is the beginning of the Church Year. It is a time of anticipation, a time of preparation, and a time of remembrance. Each Sunday, we light one more candle on the Advent wreathe, as we prepare for the birth of Christ.
As always, all are welcome at St. Margaret's, wherever you are on your journey in life.
Join us for this special season at our beautiful heritage church on Galiano Island. Music, singing, worship with a welcoming island congregation.
Work at St. Margaret's Church includes many services in our small community: from Pastoral Care by our pastor to hte Food Bank, from Financial assistance to those in need through Galiano Helps, to the Cemetery support and care of our Heritage Church.

In this time of a difficult economy, help is particularly needed. Please give generously.
In the stillness of our souls we listen for your voice to know again that you are God. Quiet our restless hearts with the knowledge that you are near us, keeping watch over your own.
Rekindle our faith and light the lamp of hope within our hearts. Then take us by the hand into this day that lies ahead, for where you lead we can confidently go with Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
