Human Sexuality

SASS “Town Hall” meetings – re PCC Remits on Human Sexuality

Following the 2019 General Assembly each Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church in Canada is being asked to approve or reject the following two remits:-

  1. The Presbyterian Church in Canada holds two parallel definitions of marriage and recognizes that faithful, Holy Spirit filled, Christ centred, God honouring people can understand marriage as a covenant relationship between a man and a woman or as a covenant relationship between two adult persons. That congregations, sessions, ruling and teaching elders be granted liberty of conscience and action on marriage. 

  2. That congregations and presbyteries may call and ordain as ministers and elect and ordain as ruling elders LGBTQI persons (married or single) with the provision that liberty of conscience and action regarding participation in ordinations, inductions and installations be granted to ministers and ruling elders.

 How would you vote and why?

 Although the process only allows for presbyteries to vote on the above the Session of SASS would like to provide an opportunity for you to share your opinion, ask questions and seek some clarification on the process and potential implications of the above being subsequently approved.

 As such, the Session have made available resources (on the church website – sasspc.bc.ca) to encourage the congregation to read, reflect upon and submit questions, concerns, opinions, in preparation for 2 “town hall” style meetings in the Fall, prior to the Presbytery meeting and voting on November 16th.

Questions can be submitted directly to Pastor Martin, pastormbaxter@gmail.com, or anonymously via this form

The meetings will be held as follows :-

Sunday, October 27th 2019, 7-9pm – to focus on “why” has the PCC come to this point.

Sunday, November 3rd 2019, 7-9pm – to focus on “what might this mean” for “us” going forward, if these remits are approved and become the polity of the church.

Alpha is an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. In Alpha, topics such as "Who is Jesus?" "How does God guide Us?" "How can I be sure of my faith" are addressed.

This is a great place to come and ask questions with other seekers or new Christians.    

Our next ALPHA course has been postponed until early 2020.

Each evening will include an intriguing video presentation and some small group discussion, and most importantly tea, coffee and dessert.

Mission Trip 2020


March 22 to 28, 2020  

March 22 to 28, 2020 in Ensenada, Mexico and its surrounding community. Ensenada is 115 kms South of San Diego on the Pacific coast of Baja California. Once there, we will be working with YUGO Ministries (Youth Unlimited Gospel Outreach) at the Ensenada Outreach Centre (EOC). For more information on YUGO ministries, please visit www.yugo.org.

We are planning to fly to San Diego, and then drive to Ensenada. Once in Ensenada, we stay at a safe and enclosed campus that includes hot showers, free internet, a cafe, and dining facilities where we are served 3 meals a day. If you have special dietary needs, please let us know. We need to inform Yugo about it with anticipation.

What will we do?
At the core of this trip is our desire to live out the Christian faith by serving and loving those whose paths we cross. We hope to be involved in a construction project as well as serving the community through children’s work. The exact details of the week will not be finalized until closer to the time. The good news is that you don’t need to be a skilled construction worker – just willing to learn, serve, and work hard!

Your donation will support both the construction costs and the team’s travel to Ensenada. (Approx $25,000 in total)

You can also make donations of cash or cheque at our church office. Donations greater than $20 will receive a tax receipt.
