Who We Are

Who We Are

Sojourn is a Evangelical Anglican Church at UBC on Vancouver’s Westside.

A church plant of the Anglican Network in Canada (ANiC), Sojourn is a partnership between St John’s Vancouver Anglican Church and University Chapel. We are supported by Vision Ministries Canada, an inter-denominational church planting and church growth ministry, who are guiding and mentoring us as we move forward.

We are Anglican church committed to the historic Christian faith based on the authority of the Bible and holding firmly to the beliefs outlined in the creeds (see our Beliefs page for more information). We are firmly committed to being a worshipping community that is both evangelical and liturgical. 

At Sojourn we are exploring, engaging, and experimenting as we seek to creatively and authentically figure out what it looks like to be a solidly rooted and currently relevant multicultural church in Vancouver the 21st century. 

We're part of the growing movement exploring the spiritual practices and forms of worship that have stood the test of time.  Along with many others from a broad range of denominations we are finding them helpful and beneficial in our post-modern, post-Christian context. Many of these practices have been tested in the fire of persecution and opposition and have fostered godliness and perseverance in God's people over many generations and cultures.  Simple disciplines of "soul-training" (to use James Bryan Smith's phrase) open up new depths of spiritual life.  This is most obvious in our careful and creative use of the liturgy in our gathered worship, both on Sundays and during our morning prayer services.
