Parish Profile

This profile was prepared for Parish Council in May 2012, and is designed to provide information about St. Martin of Tours Anglican Church on Gabriola Island, British Columbia.
We warmly invite you to join our Sunday worship service.  St Martin’s regular Sunday worship time is 9:00 am, unless otherwise stated. Effective February 2014, the 9:00 am on the second Sunday of each month is replaced with a joint shared service with Gabriola United Church at 10:00 am.   Please check our website and local newspapers for announcements about time changes, and special or seasonal services.

Our Current Congregation

The congregation, primarily a fellowship of adult members in the 40 – 90 age range, includes both long-time Gabriola residents and more recent arrivals, and is supplemented by visitors during the summer with some returning annually.

Different nationalities and varied denominations are represented within the congregation (namely Anglican and Lutheran). We have 39 families on our parish list and a number of “friends of St. Martin’s” who join us for events and sometimes worship. Our congregation gives generously of its time for parish events and committee work.

With 5 Christian communities on Gabriola, there are multiple options for children and youth. Our community is organized in traditional Anglican fashion with Wardens and Parish Council and a number of Committees.
