Welcome to Saanich Peninsula Presbyterian Church.
Our worship takes place at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday morning both in-person and online (via the SPPC YouTube Livestream button above). We invite you to join us each week as we continue to explore and follow the Word of God. Following the service, there will be a fellowship time at the back of the sanctuary.
For the safety of your neighbours, when you attend worship:
Please, perform a health check prior to attending.
While masks are not required, feel free to wear one if you prefer.
We look forward to seeing you on Sunday.
News for February 25, 2024
We are presently in that part of the Church Year we call Lent. This is a special season in the Christian calendar, a time of intentional preparation for the joy of Easter. It invites us to reflect on our relationship with God and the world around us. Furthermore, through practices like fasting, prayer, and alms-giving, we can turn towards Christ's example of sacrifice and love. During Lent, we also acknowledge our need for God's grace and forgiveness, opening ourselves to deeper transformation as we anticipate the celebration of Christ's resurrection.
On this second Sunday of Lent we are pleased to welcome the Rev. Joan Scandrett to the Pulpit at SPPC in a pulpit exchange with Trinity, Victoria, where I will be preaching. We look forward to having you come together for worship at 10:00 a.m. Whether you're able to gather in person or prefer to connect virtually, we welcome you to participate through our live stream here.
