The Anglican Diocese of Edmonton seeks to further God’s Kingdom as welcoming communities where Jesus’ ministry of healing, reconciliation and new life is lived out in worship, loving service and partnerships locally and around the world.
We are a family of 48 urban and rural parishes in central Alberta, spanning an area of more than 126,000 square kilometres extending to the borders of our neighbouring provinces of British Columbia in the west and Saskatchewan in the east.
We believe that the Gospel is best proclaimed 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 and then, by the grace of God, in those who have come to follow Him.
We value honest, transparent and respectful communication. We seek to provide encouragement and inspiration to all who are building loving, inclusive, Christ-centered communities. We respect the dignity of every human being and endeavour to lift the voices of people who are marginalised.
As followers of Jesus, we learn from His life of teaching, sacrifice, and love through the witness of scripture, our Anglican tradition, and the work of the Holy Spirit. Jesus proclaimed that the Kingdom of God has come near and in His presence, where people were and are healed and fed, and given new life, God’s Kingdom truly was and is manifest.
