Bishop Consecration, Monday, Nov. 30th at 7pm

Great News!  The Medical Director of Nova Scotia was given a copy of the Diocese plan for this modified service of Consecration and Installation, including their health and safety measures, and they have his approval to proceed.  They are upholding all of the provincial regulations that apply to faith-based gatherings in this area as of this date according to Dr. Strang’s direction.  The worship space for this liturgy is considered to be the transept. No more than five people will be present in this space at any one time.  The music ensemble is a family bubble and are always at least 60 feet away from members of the congregation.  Videographers are at least 30 feet from the congregation.  A photographer, when present, is at least 20′ away from the congregation.  Because of last minute changes due to the current travel restrictions, a change in the recording/broadcasting of the service has had to take place. As a result the live streaming will only be able to be shown through face book at the link below.  Please note; you do not need a face book account to watch.  Just click on the link below (live on Facebook at 7pm tomorrow night).

Worship With Us

For more than 12,000 Sundays worshippers have gathered here to celebrate Christ’s death and resurrection, to read God’s word and to hear it preached from the pulpit, to bring before Him the needs of the world and to offer Him humble thanks for his goodness.

Explore History

St. Paul’s is the oldest building in Halifax and the oldest existing Anglican place of worship in Canada. Founded by proclamation of King George II in 1749, the building was erected in the summer of 1750.

Find Sanctuary

A sanctuary is a place of refuge from danger, and many have entered St. Paul’s Church with that in mind since the mid-eighteenth century. In its early days the most obviously vulnerable have sought refuge, or been carried to it, during catastrophes—the injured, the dying, the dead.
