About

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 grateful to all our partners for their passion to see God prosper us.

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).

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 in 2014.

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) can really open up new depths of spiritual life.  This is most obvious in our careful and creative use of liturgy as a framework for our gathered worship.

Sojourn is an exciting and Christ-centered place to:

  • Explore Christian faith
  • Be nurtured to maturity in Christ
  • Be formed by timeless spiritual practices
  • Get involved and put your gifts to work

We would love for you to join us!
