St. Christopher's Anglican Church is an Open Communion church on Saturna Island. It was dedicated in 1963 and joined with various other parishes until 1970 when it became a parish on its own. Since 1984, St. Christopher's has been part of The Parish of Pender and Saturna Islands in The Anglican Diocese of BC, a.k.a. The Diocese of Islands and Inlets. Information about the Diocese and our particular parish can be found at https://bc.anglican.ca, by speaking with any of the islanders who are a regualar part of the St. Christopher's community, or by dropping in most Sundays between 10:30 and noon. For FB users, St Christopher's also has a page that you are welcome to join at https://www.facebook.com/groups/658955277633735/.
St. Christopher's Church holds Anglican services as well as services conducted by ministers of other denominations. The Venerable Ellen Willingham is the Minister for the Parish of Saturna and the Pender Islands. She is available by phone and email, and comes to minister at St. Christopher's the 2nd Sunday of every month. We are fortunate as well to have other ministers as part of our community: Reverend Dawn Wood as a year-round resident; Reverend Dick Walenta, The Reverend David Wylie and Pastor Jeanette Amundson in part-time ministry at St. Christopher's.
Musicians are a vital aspect of any church community. We welcome any musicians interested in exploring sacred and gospel music. If you would be available to support the music of St. Christopher's with your instrument, please be in touch.
St. Christopher's has a history of providing Sunday School programs for children. If you have a child interested in exploring church,we would be happy to speak with you about that.

The monthly schedule for St Christopher's is Meditation every first and third Sunday, Anglican Eucharist every second Sunday, and community led worship services on the fourth and fifth Sundays. Periodically circumstances will necessitate a change from this pattern. A current weekly church notice is posted along the road outside the church and on the Saturna Island Forum FB page.
