Welcome To St Paul's
The church is not presently open for worship
updated June 2021
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the current state of the re-opening plans for the province of Ontario, the church building is not able to hold in-person worship services and is not open to the public.
You can watch our weekly messages from Fr Keith online here.
If you are in need of assistance, please call the church office and we will get back in touch with you as soon as possible.
..and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”

Message by Fr Keith Joyce
Going forth into the world
The Season after Pentecost, also called Ordinary Time, begins the day after Pentecost and ends the day before the First Sunday of Advent. It spans twenty–three to twenty–eight Sundays, depending on the date of Easter, but the first Sunday is Trinity Sunday, and the last Sunday is The Reign of Christ.
Searching for connection?
We hold three weekly worship times – two Sunday services with Holy Communion at 8:00 am and 10:30 am respectively and a Thursday morning Holy Communion at 10:00 am with the first Thursday including prayer for healing with the laying on of hands and anointing with oil.
The 8:00 am service uses the Book of Common Prayer on the 1st to 3rd Sundays and Book of Alternative Services on 4th (and any 5th) Sundays.
Special occasions of worship happen at other times, especially during Advent and Lent. Also Christmas is anticipated by the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols for Christmas, usually held a week or two before Christmas Day.

Sharing God’s love in this time and place..
St Paul’s Anglican Church is a relatively small parish of about 100 families, located on the Eastern edge of Northumberland County, on the shores of Lake Ontario near Presqu’ile Provincial Park. The people of St. Paul’s come from a variety of backgrounds: young and old, raised in the church and new to the church, single and married, divorced and widowed. It is our privilege to serve here in Brighton, Ontario and also to serve through our partnerships with mission and outreach groups here in Canada and around the world.
Join us in worship and celebration..
St. Paul’s Church is an Anglican church, but everyone is welcome – you don’t have to be Anglican to worship in this community. You are invited to visit and worship with us at any time, take part in any of our programs and join us as part of our church family! The liturgy of the Church celebrates the truth and mystery of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and thus we gather each Sunday to celebrate, in word and sacrament, our participation in that truth and great mystery. It would be wonderful to have you with us!
St Paul’s is a place for you
