Everyone is welcome! We gather every Sunday, with our services at 10:30 am. Our Work in the Community continues. Needed more than ever during these challenging times.

Our Church closely follows all current BC Guidelines for health and safety. Masks are required and sanitization provided.

Anyone who is not vaccinated is requested to attend online services of their own church or  Victoria's Christchurch Cathedral. Click here for a link to the Cathedral's services.

In this Time of Uncertainty...A prayer for you
Sarah's message for difficult times ... full text in the Blog

Merciful God,

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.

A Church Without Walls
Our small Island Community has many needs, especially at a time when we are facing a health and economic crisis. Throughout, we are helping helping those in need of spiritual solace, guidance, food and support. Our Church is here...for you.

At St. Margaret’s this year, like the rest of Canada and the World, it is:

* a time of  reaching out, virtually, to friends and family, and in socially conscientious distancing.

* a time of reaching inward for serious reflection.

* a time of reaching to God for faith and strength in these difficult times.

The Church is open for services at 10:30 am on Sundays and the Food Bank is open and providing service to our neighbours in need on Fridays. We expect this need to increase. Please be generous in support of St. Margaret's.
