Shared Ministry


On March 12, 2017, the parish of Gabriola United Church and St. Martin of Tours Anglican Church voted to become a full Shared Ministry. The Shared Ministry Agreement between Gabriola United Church and St Martin of Tours Anglican Church was signed on June 25th, 2017.

A celebration was held to recognise this and to also recognise our new church with a new name…we are now called, Christ Church, Gabriola. Sadly, this was also the day Rev. Peggy Jensen’s time as Intentional Interim minister came to an end.

The Shared Ministry Search Committee has been created to help in the search for a new minister to our Pastoral Charge.

Christ Church Gabriola Sunday Service is 10:00 am.

In the May 2017 issue of the Diocesan Post, Rev Peggy Jenson submitted an article on the process taken to achieve this objective. The following is an excerpt from this article:

Diocesan PostIn some ways, it is like preparing for marriage. You make a commitment to each other before God, then take time to build the relationship. You carefully examine the benefits of living together and sharing resources. As time passes you recognize the depth of the common faith you share and a desire to make a permanent commitment.
