Welcome! We invite everyone to join us in worship of the risen Lord Jesus, and in fellowship as the body of Christ, as we seek to be God’s people in and for the world.
The Core Purpose of Emmaus Anglican Church is to: “To embody the good news of God, who desires to reconcile all people and all things to himself through Jesus.”
In a world that is confused, ungrounded, busy and loud, where people are over-advertised, over-worked, over-scheduled, and over-connected (distracted), Emmaus is seeking be a prophetic community here in Montreal. A community that celebrates all that is good, beautiful and true in the world, while also being a prophetic community that express, and lives into, the Kingdom of Heaven here and now.
Emmaus understands herself to be HISTORIC, THOUGHTFUL and LOVING:
Historic: That we are Anglican and understand ourselves, in a very specific way, to be a part of the one, holy, catholic and apostolic church. Our worship is grounded in the historic liturgy expressed in the Book of Common Prayer. Our desire is to faithfully worship the living God through Word and Sacrament in a way that brings Him honour, and in a way that shapes and forms us to be His people in and for the world.
Thoughtful: We recognize that today, perhaps more than ever, we need to learn to think rightly, humbly and wisely about God and His world. We desire for our worship of the Triune God to be thoughtful, to provide space for quiet and contemplation, and to honour God’s Holy Word. We want our worship to engage our minds and our hearts so that we know how to think critically, generously, and wisely as we seek to be God’s people in and for the world.
Loving: That we desire is to be a loving community. A community of people whose hearts are open to all (2 Cor. 6:11), and who practice generosity and hospitality in our gatherings, our homes and our neighbourhoods. We know that we can think all the right things, say all the right things, and do all the right things, but if we don’t have love we are nothing (1 Cor. 13).
We invite you to join us, as we seek to be God’s people in and for the world, here in Montreal.
