Welcome to Gloria Dei Lutheran Church 


You Are Welcome Here!

You are indeed welcome here! In step with British Columbia's Re-Start Plan, our congregation is taking a phased approach to a return to in-person worship. In keeping with the current Public Health Orders for Worship Services we have updated our Covid-19 practices for safe worship through the Fall. You can read about them here.  

All members, visitors and users of our facility 5yrs old and up are expected to wear a mask.  We strongly encourage everyone to get vaccinated. At this time, because our usual Sunday attendance is below the 50% capacity threshold as stipulated by the Public Health Orders of Nov. 30, we are not requiring proof of vaccination to participate in our worship services. We have a large sanctuary space that provides enough space for everyone to spread out. We are glad that we can meetup with friends and acquaintances but we are continuing to refrain fom hugging or hand-shaking.  You do not need to pre-register to attend a service.

Here is our schedule of Services for December. 

Dec. 5, 10AM  - Service of the Word  (no communion) 

Dec. 12, 10AM - Service of Holy Communion with choir

Dec. 19, 10AM - Family Service (no communion)

We gather each week to worship and pray on the traditional, ancestral, unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples. For thousands of years they have walked on this land and paddled the waters of the Salish Sea. We are grateful to the Squamish, Musqueam and T’sleil-Waututh Nations for their stewardship of these lands and the waters of the Salish Sea. 

We are a group of people of all ages, who come from all walks of life and are not perfect.

We come together weekly to experience the joy and mystery of God's presence with us. We welcome all people, inclusive of all sexual orientations and gender identities and gender expressions.  We are always on the journey to continually try to figure out how to be a Christ-centered, LGBTQ+ inclusive, and social justice-orientated community.

We gather to nourish our faith, to have fun together, and to give ourselves away in service to others.

You are welcome here!
