Chancel and Sanctuary Guild

Each week a small group of dedicated people prepare the Chancel and Altar for worship, consecration, celebration and remembrance. The work is divided into three parts: the cleaning of the chancel and altar; the setting up for all services, during the week and on Sundays, as well as special services for baptisms, weddings, funerals and ordinations; and finally, the decoration of the church to celebrate these weekly events plus the larger occasions in the church calendar, such as Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving.

At St. John’s a team approach is taken, with each team being responsible for two months a year. Thus, the commitment is shared among many members and there are resources to draw upon when the need is greater. The Altar Guild members are deeply honoured to be responsible for this work.
