St. John's, Ida
A Community Church in the Anglican Tradition Since 1819
Learning together to follow Jesus
A little about us...
We are a community church in the Anglican Tradition, located in the beautiful Cavan Hills, 15 minutes west of Peterborough. Being a “community” church means that we are a church for the entire community, not just those with an Anglican background.
We have been "Celebrating Jesus for over 200 years"!
Due to the ongoing developments with the Covid-19 pandemic, we are moving our services online.
Our next online service:
Sunday, July 12th
at 10:30 a.m.
6th Sunday after Pentecost
Never miss a service again!

An update from Rev. Peter...
On June 8th the Ontario Provincial Government announced that places of worship would be able to start to gather again, albeit with some modifications. This is welcome news as we look to one day meeting together for worship. However, for the time being, all the Anglican Bishops in Ontario have determined that “in person” worship services will not resume until September, at the earliest. This decision was made, in consultation with public health experts, with the well-being and safety of all parishioners being of utmost importance. We will follow the guidelines laid out by our Bishops.
I realize that some of us are hankering to return to “in person” worship. I completely understand and share that desire. By the end of June, the diocese will publish protocols for reopening for public worship. The Wardens and I will use these to prepare for reopening in the fall.
In the meantime, we will continue to livestream our church services on Sunday mornings at 10:30. I hope you know that if you miss it on Sunday morning you can still watch it at any time at stjohnsida.com. We also plan to continue the Zoom Coffee Hour on Sunday evenings from 7 to 8 p.m. We have had some wonderful Men’s Fellowship Breakfasts (without the breakfast) in May and June, on Zoom. Stay tuned for further gatherings of this kind.
Thank you for your ongoing support of our ministry in Ida and Omemee. Your financial support, prayers and encouragement mean a great deal as we journey together through these challenging days.
Please be in touch anytime with any questions or concerns etc. I plan to be on holiday from mid-July to mid-August. Rev. Bill will be available for pastoral care during this time.
Grace and Peace,
