Toronto Anglican Church
serving the community in West Lake Macquarie.
Toronto Anglican Church meet in the Church building dedicated to Christ the King. We acknowledge that the site on which our church stands has a long spiritual history as the site known as Pondee, which is the site for ceremony and ritual of the Awabakal people; the traditional custodians of this region. Here at Toronto we are a vibrant and active Christian community of faith. We are a community that reflects many aspects of Anglican tradition, always exploring new ways of celebrating our faith. This is expressed primarily in the worship, service, prayer, fellowship and Sacraments that form us to live out our faith in the community through participating in the movement of God's love towards the world.
Normally, we gather for worship on weekends and weekdays and you are warmly invited to attend any of our services no matter where you are in your spiritual journey. Whether you are new to the Church or have been an active Church member for 50+ years, all are welcome and equal in the Kingdom of God.
We here at Toronto Anglican Church are delighted to announce that we will be returning to worship. Even though we will gather under very different COVIDSafe circumstances we pray that this will be a deep and meaningful experience and that we worship safely and with reverence and love. Please note that service times are different to normal with two weekday 'one off' services, before returning to Sunday worship at 9am on Sundays on the 19th July.
Under government regulations and Diocesan regulations you must pre-register to attend.
To register for Tuesday 7th July at 9am please email firstname.lastname@example.org by midday Monday the day prior.
To register for Thursday 16th July at 2.30pm please email email@example.com by midday Wednesday the day prior.
To register for Sunday 19th July at 9am please email firstname.lastname@example.org by midday Saturday the day prior.
We pray that our worship together will nourish us and I look forward to celebrating the Holy Eucharist with you all.
