St Mary Magdalene is an inclusive, open Christian community. Being the only church on Mayne Island, we welcome and celebrate people from all traditions, styles and practices. Our services are founded in the Anglican tradition, based in the Iona Celtic style, but include elements from many other traditions, as well.
Those who worship with us come from a wide variety of places and backgrounds, but as we gather in one place together Sunday by Sunday, week by week, we are united by our common faith in Christ and in our desire to hear and to follow Christ’s way in the world. This means we strive to live into the Great Commandment, to love God and love all of our neighbours as ourselves.
Our church is located on the traditional lands of the Tsartlip First Nation of the Coast Salish Peoples. We give thanks for all who have gone before us and for the many blessings of this place.
Wherever you are on your faith journey, we invite you inside our doors! Based on our baptismal vow to “respect the dignity of every human being,” here at St. Mary Magdalene, we affirm diversity and embrace inclusiveness. We think we have something to offer you and we know we can learn something from you. Join us – let’s journey together!
