Presbyterians in Canada
The Presbyterian Church in Canada has its roots in churches which came from Scotland in the days when Canada was just being explored and settled British and European peoples. Though our Scottish roots are still important to us, our denomination includes people of many different cultures: First Nations, Irish, Dutch, Hungarian, Chinese, Taiwanese, Korean...this list goes on. At St John's, we draw on the gifts of many cultures through the music we use in worship and in different social occasions when we learn about one another. For a glimpse at our larger church famiy, look at the website of The Presbyterian Church in Canada: presbyterian.ca.
In Alberta, St John's is part of the Presbytery of Calgary-MacLeod and the Synod of Alberta & the North West. Through these regional groups, we share in prison ministry, seniors ministry, university chaplaincy, youth events and camping. Our provincial camp, Camp Kannawin, is on Sylvan Lake.
