You can watch Fr Keith’s sermons linked here each week. Message by Fr Keith Joyce on the Fourth Sunday of Easter, April 25, 2021 from St Paul’s Anglican Church in Brighton, Ontario.
“You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and love your neighbour as yourself.” Luke 10:25-29 [CEB]
Learning About The Creeds: This program on Thursday evenings at St. Pauls explores the core of Christian belief in greater depth through the Nicene and Apostles’ Creeds.
Easter is a joyous season where we celebrate Christ’s resurrection and ascension, and anticipate the coming of the Holy Spirit and the beginning of the Church. “Christ Is Risen! He Is Risen Indeed; Alleluia, Alleluia!”
Searching for worship?
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.
Our Church Family
Join us in worship and celebration..
St. Paul’s Anglican Church is a 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!

Welcome from Fr Keith
Now that you’ve stopped by our web site we hope you’ve found what you’re looking for and more.
If there is anything that you’re looking for and can’t find, please let us know, and we’ll help you as best we can.
Any thoughts, comments or critiques in order to make our web content more accessible would be greatly appreciated.
Please use the forms here or call the office. We would love to welcome you should you want to worship with us or you’re be looking for a church home.
We’re a diverse group of people from all walks of life, and in various stages of our journeys as followers of Jesus Christ. We readily admit we are an imperfect lot, yet we do seek to take very seriously the call of God on our lives as taught in Holy Scripture and guided by God the Holy Spirit.
At the heart of our life together is Holy Communion, celebrated in a range of styles in the times of worship over the span of a week, and in the seasons of the church year. By God’s work through us and strengthened by God’s word and sacrament we desire to reach out to the world around us in the name and love of Jesus Christ.
So, again, welcome to our web site and maybe also to worship with us as St Paul’s Anglican Church here in Brighton.

The words of St Paul
For as in one body we have many members, and not all the members have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another.
