Did You Know?
As a fixture on Main Street since 1891, the Church has always functioned as a community hub. We have many community groups and programs using our facilities at the moment.
We are grateful that others find our sacred space so worthwhile in their gatherings.
Call the Church office 403.678.5354 for further information, or contact the program leaders listed below. Please note that few of these programs will be meeting in person during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As described in their materials, CYAN programs are “For Young Adults – By Young Adults” and include monthly young adult community suppers, cross-country skiing, yoga, Canmore Eagles games, information nights on social issues… and we are so pleased to be involved with them.
