Led by our current bishop, the Right Reverend Jane Alexander, members of the Anglican Diocese of Edmonton seek to further God’s Kingdom by being communities where Jesus’ own ministry of healing, reconciliation and new life is lived out in our worship, service and partnerships with other churches and groups locally and around the world.
With Edmonton at the geographical center, the diocese consists of 53 urban and rural parishes in an area of more than 126,000 square kilometres of central Alberta, extending to the borders of the adjacent provinces of British Columbia in the west and Saskatchewan in the east.
The Gospel is best proclaimed, not from a loud speaker or a billboard, but through the loving relationships we build with the people around us and the service we offer to our local and global communities. The Gospel isn’t just a word, it’s the Word made flesh, first in Jesus the Christ and then, by the grace of God, in those who have come to follow Him.
Becoming a disciple means doing that work of following Jesus; learning from His life, teaching, sacrifice and love through the witness of scripture, our Anglican tradition and the work of Holy Spirit. Jesus proclaimed that the Kingdom of God has come near and in His presence, where people were healed and fed and given new life, God’s Kingdom truly was and is manifest.
