A warm welcome to our visitors, whether it's for a one-time visit or you're searching for a church-family to worship with on a regular basis.

Our church elevator accesses all three levels of the church building.

A Nursery, staffed by volunteers, is available for infants to age five during the worship service. For safety, please accompany your children to the Nursery and pick them up immediately after the worship service.

Together with strong lay leadership, a three-member pastoral team helps lead the congregation. There are many ways to get involved here, everything from prayer shawls and quilting, to refugee sponsorship and hamper deliveries, to potlucks and Sunday Suppers, to events for all ages (junior youth, youth, seniors, women’s group, men’s gatherings, etc). We invite you to walk this journey of faith and community with us.

Incorporation:

On January 1, 2017 St. Jacobs Mennonite Church became a Canadian corporation, registered under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act.

Our History - About Us

SJMC Welcoming Statement:

From 2015-2016, we at SJMC engaged in conversations, listening, learning and discernment in relation to people who are LGBTQ. At the end of the process, we affirmed a new SJMC Welcoming Statement and received it within the context of worship on May 15, 2016.

Grounded in God’s universal love, we are a community of faith growing into our calling to be the body of Christ. We welcome people who are LGBTQ to participate in the life and ministry of our congregation.

Living into our Welcoming Statement:

  • We welcome people who are LGBTQ into the life and ministry of SJMC, including baptism and membership upon confession of faith in Jesus.
  • We will trust and support our pastors in discerning requests to participate in marriages, including same-sex marriages.
  • When we are in a pastoral search, we will consider individuals according to their particular gifts and calling for ministry, not their sexual identity.
  • As we journey together, we welcome ongoing storytelling and conversations of listening and learning in a spirit of gentleness, grace and love.
