We are an Anglican church in the heart of Oak Bay in Victoria, BC. As part of the Diocese of British Columbia we are members of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

Our parish began on October 4th 1911, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. Since then, many Christians have lived faithfully through this community in the ministries of music, worship, service, fellowship, teaching and hospitality. We strive for excellence in music and liturgy and host a number of concerts each year.

We welcome and invite you to our church. You will find parking in our lot on Sundays and if not there is ample room along the surrounding streets. Our building is wheelchair accessible. You can find our office, and the chapel, through the cloister garden. During the week, the parking spots on the right handside of the lot are for church use.

When you come you bring the gift of "new eyes" and we welcome your questions about our community and about the God who gifts us with Life and one another.

Bring Back our Girls

We are praying for the women of Nigeria. Please pray with us:

O God, we cry out to you for the lives and the freedom of the 276 kidnapped girls in Nigeria.
In their time of danger and fear,
pour out your strong Spirit for them.
Make a way home for them in safety.
Make a way back for them
to the education that will lift them up.
Hold them in the knowledge
that they are not captive slaves,
they are not purchased brides,
but they are your beloved daughters,
and precious in your sight.
Change the hearts and minds of their kidnappers
and of all who choose violence against women and girls. Cast down the mighty from their seat
and lift up the humble and meek,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

( By Elizabeth Smith, The Anglican Church of Australia
