Our Vision:

The Anglican Churches of Pictou County
“ As we move forward together”

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3: 16)

Because all people matter to God, all people should matter to us. It will be the ministry of the people of the Anglican Churches of Pictou County to provide opportunities for others to hear and to share in the good news, in as many ways and means as possible and to help them to respond in faith.

This ministry will see those who are committed to Jesus Christ put their faith into action. They will live their faith in the community, working together within the Anglican faith to encourage greater fellowship through retreats, Bible study, Alpha programs, special services, church choirs, Men’s Choir, Ministries for our youth (Baptism, Sunday School, Life in the Eucharist, Confirmation, Servers, Youth Groups), Pastoral and Eucharistic Ministries, social outreach, and other congregational initiatives all in mutual support of each other so that we may grow in love and fellowship, joining together to build God’s kingdom in this place.

Because we believe that others will hear God’s Word presented clearly and creatively in an atmosphere of acceptance, this ministry will see friends bringing friends to share in corporate worship. This ministry will also be dedicated to encouraging former members to return to worship in the Anglican faith, by sharing our enthusiasm, and providing encouragement to others at the workplace, at home, or in any public place.

We intend to learn to pray regularly, frequently, and with confidence.

We desire that the Holy Spirit will fill all our hearts with a desire and conviction to achieve those things which can make the Anglican Churches of Pictou County living and growing, each congregation being a necessary part of the wider body, and presenting a positive example to the broader community, because people’s lives have been changed by God’s grace.

This ministry envisions a network of healthy church congregations, meeting regularly, and joining together for special occasions, committed to the love of God, and the love of each other. AMEN.
