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 403.675.0064 for further information, or contact the program leaders listed below.

UKULELE

The “High Strung” Ukulele group uses Gordon Hall and the Sanctuary for their practices each Thursday from fall to spring. This group has seen rapid growth in recent years, and now performs at a number of community venues.

ROOTS AND WINGS

Our upstairs room is, seasonally, being used three times weekly for young child programming. The Roots and Wings program offers play-based, multi-sensory experiences for children 2 to 4.5 years in age. Visit musicmagic.ca

 

CYAN – CANMORE YOUNG ADULT NETWORK

The Canmore Young Adult Network was established following a study conducted by Ralph Connor’s Community Networker in the summer of 2017.  For more information, visit the CYAN Facebook Page or  website. 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.

PRAYER SHAWL KNITTING AND CROCHETING CREATORS

Over 1000 Prayer Shawls have been given to those in need and they are such a huge success for those receiving them. What a gift and a fellowship for those creating!

Typically, gatherings are on the second Friday of the month at 1:00 PM in Gordon Hall. Bring wool and needles. Call Jeanette at 403.678.2030 for further information about this community/ecumenical group.

COMMUNITY FOOD AND FRIENDS NIGHT

Ralph Connor is pleased to be a partner in serving the Monday night communal meals at St. Michael’s Anglican Church. Anyone and everyone wishing to have a great meal with great company, come to St. Michael’s Hall between 5:00 and 7:00 PM on Mondays!  During the pandemic, this event has transitioned to take-out only and there is no word on when the sit-down meals will resume.

In addition:

Local choirs & singing groups, hold rehearsals in our sanctuary, musicians make recordings all taking advantage of the tremendous acoustics of this historic building.

The Church facilities are available for rental for your group, subject to COVID-19 regulations.
