A Word About Us
As a people who live as the light of Christ;
our mission is to reach out in word and deed to meet the spiritual and physical needs of those around us, with Jesus as our example.
As a people who are growing in faith and love;
our mission is to strengthen each other in our Christian walk through Bible study, sharing testimonies, prayer and the sacraments. We actively participate in our spiritual growth and the nurturing of each other as we journey in faith together.
As a people who find our source in God;
we realize we can not accomplish anything of lasting value unless we are living and working under the guidance of God, through the Holy Spirit.We seek that guidance through regular prayer and meditation on His word.
Growing in Faith,
Rooted in Christ
Life can be difficult, but you don't have to go it alone.
At St. Paul's on-the-Hill, or affectionately known as SPOTH, we are a family united by Christ journeying together. As a community, we serve one another and stand with one another to build a better future for all. As we grow in our faith together we remind ourselves that Christ is at the centre of it all.
At St. Paul's, we hold our Annual General Meeting, or Vestry, for the members of St. Paul's on the Hill. This meeting gives an overview of the year previous, our financial records, and the budget for the year ahead. Important decisions that need approval from the greater congregation are discussed and voted in. It is usually held in February each year.
St. Paul's is located in the city of Pickering. We acknowledge that many Indigenous Nations have long-standing relationships, both historic and modern, with the territories on which our church resides as part of Durham region. Today this area is home to many Indigenous peoples across Turtle Island. We acknowledge that this land forms a part of the traditional and treaty territory of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation and the treaty territory of the Chippewas of Georgina Island First Nation. We also recognize the enduring presence of all First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples.
