About Us -Re-Gathering July 5!
Three services this week, as we try a re-gathering: 9:00 and 10:30. See you then!
July 5 - Happy 40th Anniversary Church!
Pastor Steve will be preaching from Matthew 26:26 - 30. The title of his message is "First Sunday Back"
The online service will begin at 9:00 am. (press the "Online" picture below)
We want you to know that we are praying for God to speak in us and through us during a time where our services will look quite different. We are developing ways to help us all to stay connected with each other and with our community. So far, this is how that looks:

We'd like to make sure you can ask for prayer by using the link below. This link will be updated weekly and will forward to a pastor who will make sure to connect and/or forward to the person who is leading prayer this week.
As you can imagine, this has all been quite fluid and we are working on updates and improvements, daily.
Another part of our Sunday service is the offerings we bring. You can e-transfer using the email@example.com email address as well as our online giving options linked here. We hope that by including that information that you are able to have your planned giving to be uninterrupted.
You are dearly loved by Shawnigan Alliance Church and we hope to see you very soon.
Our History - We are Turning 40!
Shawnigan Alliance Church began as the hope of a group of women in a small Bible study back in 1979. Because God placed in these women, a desire for a church community, contact was made to the Alliance Church in Victoria to see about starting this sister church, here in Shawnigan.
On the first Sunday in July 1980 the group, and one young pastor (Marv Croswell, his wife Lynette and their four children) began meeting as a church in the community hall in Mill Bay.
By 1991 the new building was finished on the site at Wilmot avenue, where it stands today. Many people sacrificed to bring that hope to life including people in Victoria who sold an old parish in order to provide the funds for the land.
That hope still rings out through the doors and windows every Sunday morning. The sound of our worship team has made neighbours stop, and listen...
Like music, the heart of the congregation that still longs to reach those loved ones we haven't met yet, is the sound and action that resonates - a reach that will not stop reaching!
We believe this church, God's own house, was built and stands today to encourage all to Grow closer to the heart of God and Go to the Centre of the community.
