    THROUGH LOVE SERVE ONE ANOTHER


    We, here in our Anglican Christian tradition, come together each week to remember that our dream is a world full of compassion and kindness, a world driven and governed by trust and love. And, having been reminded, we are sent out to do what is ours to do in order to build and achieve that dream.

    Compassion and kindness,
    Driven and goverened by trust and love...

    The Reverend Lyndon Hutchison-Hounsell Tssf

    Rector

    Church Office: (519) 432-3743

    I have been a priest since 1993 and a Franciscan since 2001 living in various parts of our country. I invite you to join us to find a spiritual home where you are empowered to share the hope and love of Christ in the world. We gather each week to remember that our dream is a world full of compassion and kindness, a world governed by trust and love. And, having been reminded, we are sent out to do what is ours to do in order to build and achieve that dream. Have a look around our website. Jesus simply called us to “Love One Another” by sharing, loving and serving. I encourage you to be an instrument of peace bringing love and hope to our world.

    The Reverend Dr. Stephen McClatchie SMMS

    Priest Assistant

    Church Office: (519) 432-3743

    My association with St. John’s actually stretches back to the early 1990s when I was hired to lead the tenor section in the senior choir. When my academic career led me back to London in 2011 to become Principal of Huron University College, I returned to St. John’s and soon began to pursue ordination to the priesthood. Since my ordination in 2015, I have been assisting the Rector with a ministry of word and sacrament in addition to my work as Professor and Associate Priest at Huron, where I currently teach courses in church history, liturgical music, and theology and the fine arts.

    The Reverend Dr. John Thompson

    Deacon

    Church Office: (519) 432-3743

    Almost 20 years ago I walked the ancient pilgrim path to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. That profound experience led to my ordination as a deacon. A deacon is a messenger, bringing the needs of the world – especially the poor, the homeless, the marginalized – to the attention of the church. At St. John’s we call this “Outreach”, something we do in many ways – in our weekly Saturday night hospitality meals, our book club at the jail, and in our active support of those in our community who are similarly committed.

    The Communion of the Apostles (La communion des apôtres): James Tissot, French, 1836-1902, From the portfolio/series, The Life of Our Lord Jesus Christ (La Vie de Notre-Seigneur Jésus-Christ) Opaque watercolour over graphite on gray wove paper. Painted in France 1886-1894/ Image: 9 7/16 x 13 1/2 in. (24 x 34.3 cm) Sheet: 9 7/16 x 13 1/2 in. (24 x 34.3 cm) Rom the European Art Collections. ACCESSION NUMBER 00.159.223

    Establishing the sacrament of Communion—in which the bread and wine of the Passover feast come to symbolize the body and blood of Christ—Jesus himself distributes the bread to each disciple, suggesting the intimacy each of them shared with him at this solemn moment. For the artist, this event marked not only the apostles’ liturgical initiation but also the beginning of Christ’s church on earth and the establishment of its most important tenets and rituals.
