The gifts Christ gave were that some would be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ. (Ephesians 4:11 and 12)
All Saints is a passionate, diverse, multi-generational community of Anglicans who worship in a very special place in the heart of Winnipeg. At the heart of All Saints is our community, inside and outside our church. For nearly 140 years, we have been reaching out in love to serve Christ in the people of West Broadway and beyond. We will continue to minister to the pressing needs of the culture in which we find ourselves.
We are uniquely situated to be a living witness to the Gospel of Christ in an urban setting. We have just completed construction of West Broadway Commons, a 110-unit mixed affordable and market unit building on our property, bringing active witness of our commitment to our neighbourhood as well as financial stability to the parish, allowing us to expand our mission. This significant building project is launching All Saints into an exciting period and we are eager to work with our new incumbent to craft our future.
As a result of West Broadway Commons, there is the option of living in a premium apartment right next door to the church. We are also able to consider renumeration above the standard scale of our Diocese in appropriate circumstances.
Our building is a beautiful early-20th century church in the English gothic style, with a richly carved Rood screen and pulpit. Light filters through many William Morris stained glass windows and a majestic Casavant Freres pipe organ supports our congregation and choir to fill our sacred space with joyful worship. We enjoy a strong liturgical and musical heritage while also seeking to be open and relevant to contemporary needs.
We seek a prayerful priest with a passion for the Gospel, a love of liturgy and music, and a gift for pastoral care. They must have a desire to reach out to our parishioners and to the surrounding neighbourhood, as we build community together. We seek a priest with vision who will help us continue to evolve, remaining relevant and inspiring in today’s world. We seek a leader and skilled teacher who will discern God’s will with us, as we joyfully serve God in our parish.
