About Christ Church | Anglicanism

Welcome
You are welcome in the worship, work, fellowship and mission of Christ Church, Elbow Park, Calgary.

Who We Are
Christ Church is a parish of The Anglican Church of Canada in The Anglican Diocese of Calgary.
This website gives an overview of our community's life, but the best way to learn about Christ Church is to worship and work with us over a period of time!

What We Are Called To
We are a Christian community, welcomed into the Body of Christ in baptism, in the name of the Holy Trinity. We seek to live out our baptismal vows with integrity as we build a community of hope, compassion and service in Christ's name. In grateful response to God's gift of life in Jesus Christ, we are a "Eucharistic" people, which means a "Thanksgiving" people. Being Eucharistic means not only the way Christ is known in the breaking of bread and sharing of the cup in liturgy. It means making Christ known in our daily life and our service in the world in lives of gratitude, worship, prayer, fellowship and generosity.

Seeking a Life of Faith
Whatever your gifts, you have a vocation to serve others and find freedom there. You’ll find people in our community at every stage of their walk in faith, from the seeker to those with a mature sense of God at work in their lives. We make no claim to be perfect, but rejoice that, despite our imperfections, by God’s grace, together we are much more than the sum of our parts, and accomplish much more than we could ever ask or imagine.

We believe that everything, including life itself, comes from God. Through our worship and ministry, we seek to offer our lives back to this abundant God, and to bring life and love to others. Wherever you may live, we encourage you to seek out a Christian community where you can deepen your faith in community and live more deeply in the knowledge of God's love for you, of God's grace in your life, and of the perfect freedom that is found in living for others.

Wherever you are, your prayers for the ministry of the people of Christ Church would be appreciated.
