Requests for prayer
As the community works together to manage the effects of COVID-19 on all of our lives we are experiencing unprecedented and sometimes disturbing changes. For many people this is a cause for anxiety for some it’s a time of extra risk and vulnerability. Others may have worries about managing day-to-day life over the next few weeks. One way we can support one another is through ongoing specific prayer. If you have a particular need for prayer please email the clergy at. firstname.lastname@example.org We will be honoured to include you in our ongoing prayer
We All Can’t Wait to get Back to Church!
Will You be planting this weekend?
Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains.
The building is closed
God’s Church is always open
FOOD BANK OUTREACH CONTINUES
Due to Covid 19 our church doors have been closed. But St Clements will continue their Food Bank Outreach during this turbulent time. To facilitate this, the church will be open from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Sunday commencing April 19th, for people to drop off donations to the food bank. The first Sunday proved to be very good as people lined up according to social distancing, to leave their donations at the church.
The Offertory plate will be at the back of the church, if you wish to leave your offertory. Cheques only, cash will not be accepted. Social Distancing must be adhered to, and church admittance is for drop off only. You will not be permitted to stay in the church or to congregate. The offertory drop off will be monitored to avoid any concerns. We thank you for your support.
The Church is presently closed due to COVID 19

Early Service 7:30 a.m.
Later Service 11:15 a.m. ( with music )
Welcome to St. Clements Anglican Church! We are a warm and welcoming Parish that has served the Mapleton, St. Andrews, and Selkirk area since 1861. The Church abounds with history, and many stories and archives are available. St. Clements Church was built by local volunteer labour; we mention this as the volunteer base still exists here at St. Clements, and continues to build a strong foundation. We have learned well from our ancestors. Please take a moment to explore our website, and read about some of the events that are going on, all in the love of God. You would be most welcome to join us for our Sunday morning Service! Enjoy, and God Bless.
Where we are located
You will find our beautiful stone church at 1178 River Road, St Andrews, Manitoba; we are located minutes south of the City of Selkirk. Our church borders the Red River, and our Church Park is located on the flats of the River. It is a beautiful serene location… If you are new to the area, or have lived here for many years, we encourage you to come and get to know us! We would be glad to meet you! Come as you are, and as you get to know us, we hope that you will get to know God.
Worship Times and Eucharist
Our regular service is 11:15 a.m. Sunday mornings which includes our Sunday School program. We also have an early Sunday morning service at 7:30 a.m. This service is a condensed version, but remains well attended by those who work nights and weekends, or for those who need the rest of the day.
St. Clements celebrates Holy Communion every week. All those who are baptized are welcome to receive the sacrament of Eucharist in the Anglican Church according to your conscience. To receive the Bread put your hands one on top of the other. To receive the Wine, hold the chalice firmly in your hands and drink. If you do not wish to receive either the Bread or the Wine, please still come to the altar for a blessing; cross your arms over your chest. Parents are requested to instruct their children. For health reasons you may stand at the altar to receive the Holy Sacrament or the blessing. If you are unable to leave your seat, please notify us and we will gladly accommodate you.
