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"!
A message from our Wardens...
We continue to pay attention to the recent masking recommendations that have been made by federal, provincial and local health authorities.
In light of health concerns around RSV, Flu, and COVID-19, the Wardens, following the direction of the diocese, are strongly recommending that we wear masks for church gatherings. Please note this is not a mandate or a requirement, but a recommendation.
The Diocese has confirmed that we are continuing to stay in the “Green Stage” of the COVID-19 protocols, as we have been since early in June 2022.
What does this mean for our church?
Remaining in "Green Stage” means:
the wearing of masks is strongly recommended, not mandatory.
we may resume the informal sharing of food and drinks (e.g., coffee hours).
we may once again offer the Common Cup in the Eucharist.
We have also rearranged the chancel seating, and communion will be provided at the communion rail once again.
Hand sanitizer will continue to be available throughout.
As Christians, we are called to care for the vulnerable in our midst. We trust that we will all continue to be respectful and considerate of ourselves and others.
