The Anglican Parish of Salt Spring Island doesn’t ‘go it alone’. We see ourselves as partners in God's mission in the world, along with all people of faith. More formally, though, we are part of a larger family:
We are a member parish of the Anglican Diocese of British Columbia, those Anglican churches found on Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, and Kingcome Inlet on the mainland, informally known as 'the diocese of the islands and inlets’. In 2015, the diocese adopted a Vision of Renewed Hearts, Renewed Spirits, Renewed People. Since then, we have embarked on a journey to discern how God will guide us towards seeing our vision come to life in our parishes, communities and regions. Learn more about our Diocesan Vision
As a diocese, we are also part of the Anglican Church of Canada and the worldwide Anglican Communion. The Anglican Church of Canada is also in a ‘full communion’ partnership with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada.
