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. Masks are still recommended in BC's Step 3, and you should wear a mask indoors until you are fully vaccinated. (2 weeks after your 2nd dose).  We are continuing to refrain from singing as well as hugging or hand-shaking. Because all of us are resuming normal activities and social interactions at pace that is comfortable for us, we have retained one section of pews with physically distanced seating for those who still need  to put. little space between themselves and others. Because we no longer have a capacity limit  you do not need to pre-register to attend a service.

We welcome all people, inclusive of all sexual orientations and gender identities and were delighted to bless our lovingly constructed pride flag and rainbow tree on July 4. 



Everyone 12 years and older is now eligible to register for their vaccine.

If you registered through Vancouver Coastal Health before April 6 for your first shot, you need to "re-register" with the central provincial vaccination registry in order to get contacted for your second dose.

1. register online 24/7, at gov.bc.ca/getvaccinated;

2. call a provincial call centre between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. (Pacific time), toll-free, at 1 833 838-2323

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 and 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.
