Technical Difficulties

Our apologies that there is no livestream for Sunday, July 25. We will attempt to post the audio version of Pastor George's sermon later this week.


Welcome to Saanich Peninsula Presbyterian Church.

Our worship takes place at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday morning both in-person and online. We invite you to join us each week as we continue to explore and follow the Word of God.

We are open for worship

Under BC's Restart Plan, Phase 3, the following restrictions remain in force:

  • Please, perform a health check prior to attending

  • Masks are not obligatory but are highly recommended for those who are not fully vaccinated (14 days after their second injection)

  • Please, use provided hand sanitizers upon entering the building

And that's all! Singing and socializing are now permitted. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday.

News for Sunday, July 25

This Sunday we are once pleased to welcome Pastor George Hodgson to the pulpit. He will be preaching the second part of his series on 1 Peter 4. I am on holiday for the next week, but I will still be participating in service, this time from "the other side of the camera" as Peter and I will be running the audiovisual system from the back of the sanctuary. So if you are unable to attend in person, you can still participate through our livestream which may be found via the "SPPC Youtube Livestream" button above. The stream begins a few minutes before 10:00 am with the prelude. We also broadcast the service into the parking lot on FM 87.7.

Our soloist this week will also be Pastor George Hodgson (he is so much more talented than I am), accompanied by Larry Skaggs, who will also, as usual, be leading our congregational hymns. Our scripture reading is 1 Peter 4: 12-19.

This week, as our wonderful summer weather continues, part of my family will be heading up to Camp Imadene on Mesachie Lake (Peter and I will need to scoot out immediately after the service), where Diane will be head cook and Peter and I will be helping out (Peter with maintenance and programs, and I in the kitchens). It is a lot of fun.

I would also remind you once again of the upcoming concerts offered by Larry and the Raven Baroque, starting in the first week of August and including one here at SPPC:

  • August 2 at 1:00 p.m. at Mt. Tolmie

  • August 4 at 6:00 pm at 1067 Briarwood Cres., Shawnigan Lake

  • August 5 at 7:30 p.m. at SPPC

  • August 6 at 6:00 pm at the Sidney Bandshell

Do take the opportunity to enjoy one of these wonderful shows.

We continue to move forward, normalizing life and worship through Phase three of the re-opening. Starting in August we will once more have a fellowship time following worship with tea, coffee, and cookies. We still encourage all of you to stay safe, recommending masks if you have not yet been fully vaccinated. Please, take care! 

God bless you all!
