We engage in an inspiring and reverent Sunday service presenting a unique and modern interpretation of God’s work. We like to experiment with spiritual expression through our worship. We are innovative and committed to looking for new ways to express God’s presence in our services. A Worship Committee, comprised of the rector and members of the community, meet regularly to plan the worship experience.
UPDATE: During the COVID-19 Pandemic
In-person worship has been postponed. Please join us, gather with your family and enjoy our LIVE, online services via ZOOM each Sunday at 10:00 am. Michael leads the service live from our beautiful worship space, and our congregation participates from home. Each week, we sprinkle the online experience with live and recorded music, chosen (and many times performed by) our Music Director, Charlene Pauls.

We hope to get back to our regular offering of two Sunday services soon:
8:30 AM in the Chapel
This is an intimate spoken service and is more traditional in nature. It is about 40 minutes long and takes place in our quiet chapel. You are welcome to stay afterwards for conversation in the gathering space. If you have not already met Michael or Randy, please introduce yourself.
10:00 AM in the Worship space
This service takes place in the light-filled and open worship space which gives the Incarnation choir an chance to fill the air with their voices. One of the first things you’ll notice is we don’t have rows of pews with kneelers – the chairs may be arranged in a horseshoe, a square, or a circle depending on the theme or activities planned to support the message. We enjoy a warm, informal atmosphere and encourage you to dress for comfort.
Our choir is lead by Dr. Charlene Pauls who is active as a Soprano Soloist, Choral Conductor, and Voice Clinician. Her choral activities include positions as Associate Artistic Director of the Oakville Choir for Children and Youth, where she conducts the “Raise Her Voice Chamber Choir” and Artistic Director of the Guelph Chamber Choir. Under her direction, Raise Her Voice Chamber Choir won their category in the 2019 CBC National Amateur Choir Competition. In 2018 Dr. Pauls received the Leslie Bell Prize in Choral Conducting from the Ontario Arts Council.
The choir is open to anyone who enjoys singing! They rehearse on Wednesday evenings at 7pm.
Baptism is the way people become members of the Christian community. That’s why we celebrate it as part of our Sunday service when we gather together for worship. We have baptisms as needed throughout the year. If you wish this sacrament for your child, or for yourself, please contact the office.
Congratulations! Are you ready to commit to each other and receives the sacrament of marriage? Holy matrimony is a celebration of the love between two people that reflects God’s compassion and mutuality with humanity. Please contact the office to book an appointment with the rector.
As a community, we will be present with you in times of bereavement. Hopefully we will be aware of a need beforehand, but we ask you to let us know as soon as possible after your family member or friend has died. Michael or Randy will be available to assist with arrangements for the funeral and to support you in your grief.
Confirmation is the renewal of the promises made at our baptism. We encourage confirmation for those who have a mature desire to take on these promises as they assume adult responsibilities in the community. Those who have already been confirmed may choose to re-affirm their faith through a similar ceremony.
Sharing in a meal of bread and wine is an expression of our intimate relationship with each other and with Christ. Everyone is welcome to receive communion, regardless of age or religious affiliation.
Confirmation is not a pre-requisite to receive communion. However, we do offer instruction for those age 7 and up, whether before or after their first communion.
