The Parish of West Saint John, comprised of the congregations of St. Jude's and St. George's Anglican Churches, has a long and proud history of providing outreach and support to our communities. We have included a partial list of our successful community programs.
Some of our most successful programs include:
We were fortunate enough to have Harold Percy visit our churches to lead a mission that focused on helping us to answer tough, critical, and strategic questions about our ministry and mission. We looked at topics such as "How do we serve the member in the pew, the casual visitor, family and friends of the congregants, and the neighbourhood beyond? These are where connections that build healthy congregations are make and nurtured."
His book can be purchased from Rev. Rob, at your local Christian bookseller or online here.
"Canon Dr. Harold Percy is the rector of Trinity Anglican Church, Streetsville, and was the first Director of the Wycliffe College Institute of Evangelism. He is the author of Following Jesus: First Steps on the Way (1993), Good News People (1996), and Your Church Can Thrive (2003). Harold and John Bowen, the present Director, are proud grandfathers to Owen Percy, born February 28 2010 to Benjamin Percy and Anna Bowen"

The idea behind the Amazing Grace Project was that all Canadian Anglican congregations were invited to sing the hymn “Amazing Grace” on Sunday November 23rd 2008. Here is the video of the St. George's Choir and their handbell choir, accompanied by the congregation. For more information, visit http://archive.anglican.ca/amazinggrace/
