About Us

WHO WE ARE

We are all living by a script. Sometimes the script is obvious — at other times it can be hidden to us. These cultural scripts promise us a sense happiness, comfort and safety. At The Journey we recognize how these dominant scripts have failed us, and together we practice the story of Jesus as a powerful alternative filled with hope and possibility.  Utilizing the great resources of the Christian Scriptures and the Church Calendar we seek, in community, to be re-narrated by the story of Christ, season by season, creating space for our imagination to be sparked by the possibility of another world.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength and love your neighbour as yourself” – Jesus

NEIGHBOURHOOD PARISH

We think the church is at its best when it embodies this love in time and place. We want to follow Jesus in the gritty stuff of our everyday lives where we see the consequences of our actions, where our faith becomes real and more than just mere talk – where the rubber hits the road. We believe we’re called to live beyond Sunday gatherings and midweek meetings, to invest our whole lives in developing deep community with followers of Jesus in proximity to where we live. We call this neighbourhood model, The Parish.

Historically to have a parish meant to take spiritual responsibility for a geographic area. That’s why members of our community believe in taking ownership of the spiritual condition of their neighbourhood, finding ways to not only love one another, but tangibly love those in our neighbourhood. We want to practice the way of Jesus in the places we live, weaving a fabric of care and friendship, and participating in God’s redemptive work in the world.
