Dear Friends, we are gradually and carefully reopening for gathered worship and some meetings. Our Food Bank remains open, as it has throughout, with some limitations to number of volunteers and the way we distribute food. We are following the directives of our bishop and of the Ministry of Health and we urge you all to practice social distancing as much as possible, and, of course, wash your hands.

Our Sunday morning worship services have re-opened at 8:00am (BCP) and 10:00 am (BAS with music). However, we cannot do everything quite as normal. Some pews are roped off, there is no congregational singing, and we ask people to maintain distancing. However, it has been lovely to be back together.

We are continuing to stream our worship services on this site and plan to continue indefinitely. We have posted the liturgies we're using under our "files" category in the bar on the left if you wish to follow along as you watch and participate more fully.

We as a church community remain committed to caring for one another, as always. Our methods might change, but the loving care remains. As our situation and our guidelines shift constantly, I have every confidence in your creativity in finding ways to care for one another.

With the help of God and one another, we have weathered the first wave of Covid well. If there is another wave, we will weather that as well. I pray for you all and I know you pray for each other. God bless you all and know that you are loved! Big (virtual) hugs to all. 

Rev. Michelle

We, the parish family of Emmanuel Anglican Church, in Spryfield, Nova Scotia, have been faithfully serving this community since 1853.

 Along with our worship services each Sunday, we are home to an outlet of Feed Nova Scotia, Brownie groups, Narcotic Anonymous and a very popular YMCA exercise program (Forever Young). 


Come in, come in and sit down,
You are a part of the family!
We are lost and we are found
And we are a part of the family!

We welcome all to worship with us on Sundays:
8am Holy Communion (BCP) and 10am Holy Eucharist (BAS)
10am- Sunday School (from September to May)

The 4th Sunday of every month we have a Family Eucharist at 10am, with the young people taking part in the service that is a more informal form of the liturgy and features contemporary music.

This service is followed by a time of fellowship

Everyone is welcome. You don’t have to be new to our church.

Out of the Cold: We are still collecting items for Out of the Cold. I took another load to them this week, and anything they didn't want, I took to Adsum House for people who are setting up new homes there. Thanks for your help. We are still collecting items for Out of the Cold. Thanks for your help.

The baptism will be on June 11 (and in the fall for the Colemans).

Volunteers Needed:  Are you interested in getting a bit more involved.  

Many of our committees need some new members, Spiritual Development, Property, Cemetery.  We are also looking for some new servers and new people to help with our phone calling ministry.  These are opportunities for you to learn some new skills, make new friends, and help  the church.  If there is something else you’d like to do, speak to Rev. Michelle. New ideas are always welcome.

Food Bank: With new clients every week and a total of 224 monthly clients, the Food Bank is in need of food or money donations. We are going to make another food tower in the church during May. We need anything, especially peanut butter, crackers, any kind of pasta, cookies, Kraft Dinner, soup, pasta sauce, rice, juice (non-refrigerated), cereal, canned beans in sauce, tuna, hygiene products (but not drugs). Actually everything.  Please help as you are able and feel free to spread the word to your neighbours. Drop off Sunday morning or Tuesday morning before 11 am. We also need bags to carry the food, jars for pickles. Thanks! Feel free to share this to your Facebook groups.
