North Vancouver, B.C. Canada
In 2004 one hundred members of St. Martin's Anglican Church (See Blog Post April 6, 2014.) on Windsor Rd. in North Vancouver decided to establish the separate congregation of St. Timothy's Anglican Church. "...originally St. Timothy's was a part of the Anglican Mission (under Rwanda) from June 2004- June 2012 ..." (REF 2.) In 2005 St. Timothy's became under the auspices of the Anglican Network in Canada.
"The Anglican Network in Canada (ANiC) is a Canadian church established in 2005 under the jurisdiction of the Anglican Province of the Southern Cone, a province of the Anglican Communion. It was a founding diocese of the Anglican Church in North America in June 2009. It comprises 72 parishes in eight Canadian provinces and two American states. The Canadian provinces with more parishes are British Columbia, with 26, and Ontario, with 25. Their first Moderator Bishop was Don Harvey, from 2009 to 2014, when he was succeeded by Charlie Masters.
The cloth adorning the altar made by Gordon Barrett is a donation from congregation member, Hazel Blacoe. The fabric originated in Ireland and was her mother's treasured Irish linen bed sheet. Hazel brought it from Ireland, never used it, but carried it with her as she moved to and across Canada before settling in North Vancouver. The needlework was stitched by another congregation member, Nancy (Vondette) Nelson. (REF 3.)
Since the congregation of St. Timothy's does not have to support the upkeep of a building that portion of their giving goes to outreach in the community and mission. "St. Timothy's Church is dedicated to provide 10% of income from regular offerings to outreach projects at local, national and international levels. We strongly believe in the importance of supporting ministries and organizations in the areas of heath care, evangelism, mercy ministries, education, environment, church planting and church resourcing."
