Christian Growth

Bible Study

Participating in Bible Study is a wonderful way to deepen your faith and also make new friends.  Attendees share their perspectives in faith, and the impact of the Word accompanies them as they take the spirit of the meetings out into the world.  

For more information, please contact the Church Office.

Children & Youth Ministries

Sharing your time and talents with the Children and Youth of St. Paul’s is a fun way to deepen your own faith experience and those of others.  Teaching classes, supervising or even supporting special events for the young in our community is a vital ministry, and also a richly rewarding one.  See and hear the Word of God through the eyes of our Children and Youth.  Let their energy and excitement for the Spirit rejuvenate your relationship with God. 

Please contact the Children's Ministries Co-ordinator, Heather Clark, (519) 434-3225 x201, to find out how you can become involved. 

Natural Church Development

The Cathedral embarked on Natural Church Development (NCD) in the spring of 2013. NCD is a long-term strategic process for progressively improving a church's health. Growing a church, like growing a garden, requires a long-term commitment, which is intentional and consistently addresses the most important issues facing the church at each stage of growth. NCD identifies (and accurately measures) eight quality characteristics that are critical components of the life of healthy, growing churches:

  1. Empowering Leadership
  2. Gift-based Ministry
  3. Passionate Spirituality
  4. Effective Structures
  5. Inspiring Worship Service
  6. Holistic Small Groups
  7. Need-oriented Evangelism
  8. Loving Relationships

Since the spring of 2013, St. Paul’s Cathedral has been focusing on practical ways of addressing Passionate Spirituality, under the banner of “Connect with God. Connect with Others.”. St. Paul’s has a dedicated NCD leadership team and diocesan coaches who are committed to improving the spiritual and physical health of our beloved Cathedral. We invite everyone in our Cathedral family to continue to seek creative and meaningful ways to connect with God and others!

Participants are encouraged to discuss and share as we seek to grow in faith together.
