Click on the links below to view our current Liturgy Schedule:
Sunday services are held at 10:00 am and alternate between the traditional (BCP: Book of Common Prayer) and contemporary (BAS: Book of Alternative Services) format. Sunday school and nursery programs run each week during the service, and the Sunday School program finishes in time to allow all members of the St. Paul’s spiritual family to enjoy Communion together. St. Paul’s welcomes all baptized Christians to partake in Communion, and invites all others to come to the Lord’s table for a blessing.
Unless a Sunday closure is posted on this page by 8.00 am on the day, the church will be open for the scheduled liturgy. (We also post on our Facebook page and send a parish email to those who have subscribed to this list, as well as edit our voicemail notice for those who do not use our website or Facebook).
2018 MUSIC & ART AT ST. PAUL’S!
On Sunday, Dec 23rd, 2018 our Artist-in-residence completed his visual Advent narrative and display … the 4th Advent print. After the liturgy, Nathan facilitated a printing session at the back of the church (rear Nave) where all could see the original carvings and folks were invited to make a print for themselves! Thank you Nathan Little!
At our Epiphany Sunday service (Jan. 6’19 this year), Nathan’s ‘Journey of the St. Paul’s Magi’ was recapped via our Powerpoint for the congregation. This was the second year that our Artist-in-Residence took St. Paul’s Facebook followers on a tour of Halifax from the perspective of our mini wooden Magi figures … much to the delight of everyone!
Music features prominently in the spiritual life of St Paul’s, and worship services are enhanced through the work of the church’s extremely talented music team under the direction of the multi-talented Andrew Killawee.
Traditional services feature the St Paul’s choir, and music provided by the church’s grand organ. During contemporary services, music is provided by an instrumental ensemble featuring singers, as well as a variety of wood wind, percussion and stringed instruments.
In addition to the Sunday service, St Paul’s also holds a Chancel Eucharist service each Wednesday from 11:00–11:30, to which all are invited to attend. Also, we hold a Matins (Morning Prayer) service every Friday from 9–9:30 am, to which all are welcome.

2018 was another typically eventful year in our Parish!
Mark Flowerdew facilitated a concert to kick off Holy Week in March, sharing his appreciated original material. Mark & his family have been long-time parishioners & volunteers with St. Paul’s.
A warm ‘thank you’ to The Ottawa Children’s Choir for their splendid performance, all volunteers for their assistance and all 100 attendees for facilitating this wonderful evening and collectively generating $418 for St. Paul’s Outreach programs in May 2018!
Another huge ‘thank you’ to those who attended/volunteered at our annual fundraiser THE TULIP TEA this June 2018 where over 100 visitors came to share in music, food, silent auction and most of all … fellowship! The net result from this year’s Tulip Tea was $2,546.00. The monies will be applied to St. Paul’s Outreach Activities: 1) The Fish; 2) The Rector’s Discretionary Fund; and 3) The Wednesday Lunch.
And then we had the over 1,100 visitors that came through our doors for DOORS OPEN 2018 … it was our pleasure to have you and we hope to see you back soon! ‘Thank you’ to the volunteers of St. Paul’s who donated their weekend to this also.
September 22, at 8:00 pm: St. Paul’s was excited to host “The North” — a jazz quartet featuring two of Canada’s acclaimed multi-JUNO award winning musicians — David Braid (piano) and Mike Murley (saxophone) — along with a formidable rhythm section comprised of Danish drummer Anders Mogensen and Finnish bassist Johnny Aman. (Their recording “The North” won the 2018 JUNO Award for Jazz Album of the Year).
September 2018 also gave The Zuppa Theatre Co. an opportunity to share their impromptu skits for a week at St. Paul’s.
And then there was October 13th’s “Choirs For Change”! St. Paul’s very own Jack Bennet conducted a choral work by Jason Noble, here at St. Paul’s as part of this year’s Nocturne Event in Halifax.
‘Happily busy’ would be the perfect short description of St. Paul’s!
And check out these events that continue to happen every year …
We were again grateful to the volunteers of our HOT CHOCOLATE TEAM for hosting this annual offering and also grateful to those who visited us after the Civil Ceremony on The Grand Parade.
See you Christmas 2019!
