Who we are

The Community Apostolic Episcopal Church Of Canada

We are a newly formed church and as a new Church Community, we are reaching out to all, in the name of God's Love. Our Presiding Bishop, and our other Bishops and Clergy, are dedicated, and work hard, to demonstrate living the two great commandments given to us by Jesus: Love God and praise Him, and to love our neighbour, as ourselves.

Drawing from Anglo/Episcopal/Catholic traditions, we are open to all who are affirming and wish to worship with us.
The Community Apostolic Episcopal Church accepts all, with Love and without judgement! It is both an inclusive and progressive expression of the richness of our traditions, which are fully inclusive. No one is turned away who affirm their faith in Jesus Christ!
The very essence of our message is unconditional Love, the Love of God, the Love of Christ and the Love for one another.
Those who are seeking a place to grow spiritually and as an individual and wish to be be embraced by the One who created all, will find welcome in any of our parishes.
We invite you to peruse our website and find out more about us. If you have questions about your faith or the church you presently attend is not a place of peace for you any longer join us! If you are longing to find a community that celebrates spirituality and celebrates the sacraments in meaningful ways, then you may find a home here. Blessings on your journey!

Food Service Program

Saint Aidan's operates a food service program that provides meals that can be microwaved by those marginalized people and homeless people that are living in rooming houses, motel rooms and have access to a microwave. These meals are much larger than the usual microwave dinner and are high in nutritional value. Designed with the thought in mind that it may be the only nutritious meal they have had that day. These meals are available throughout the Grey/Bruce region at no cost.

Recovery Program 

Did you get out of treatment or detox, need more support or direction? Saint Aidan's Community Apostolic Episcopal Church sponsors an addiction recovery program targeted at all addictions, whether it is alcohol or other drugs. The Genesis Process is just the ticket for most addicts. it is a non-religious Christ-centered program and is one of the most successful programs available. It is a nice augmentation while attending your local A.A. or N.A. meetings! You can call me anytime for more information at (519) 270-4763.

Partnership Expands Meal Distribution 

Today we expanded our Partnerships for meal distribution, for those vulnerable people by forming a partnership with the Chesley's First Baptist Church"s Break Bread Meal program as they distribute meals in the Chesley area. Our meals are now distributed by O'Share Owen Sound, Safe n' Sound, Owen Sound, and the Brocton Navigator Health Team for areas such as Kincardin area's.

how you can help

Help our cause and build our kitchen

We were blessed with having been given a space in Chesley at no cost for a new commercial kitchen! We had the most marvelous volunteers assist in the building of the kitchen and installation of appliances. Our team is chomping at the bit to get back to work manufacturing and distributing our meals once again! We are standing here, with our hat in hand, asking you to donate so that we can have a proper commercial exhaust hood over the stove! This is the last piece we need, to be complete and ramp up to 600 meals a week, wahoo!

If you can help, please contact Bishop Tom at (519) 270-4763.

Donations for food program needed

We are always seeking donations for our various programs, including our frozen meal program and our Genesis Process Recovery Program. Our free frozen meal program has prepared and delivered about 650 meals a month, operating out of other personal kitchens. The Genesis Process Recovery will kick off again, when covid-19 settles down enough to permit it.

Our Priest, Bishop Tom, does not receive a stipend; in any form, all funds donated go directly to support our programs. All our projects are self-funded. We did receive emergency funding from the United way of $22,000 to help with the kitchen and supplies.

We are always in need of three-part trays. Which cost us approximately 150 dollars for one hundred and fifty trays. We project a need for 600 trays a month. Based on our return rate of 30% of the meals distributed.
