ABOUT US


St. Clements Church has a very warm and loving heart.  We come together to celebrate God’s goodness and to grow in God’s love.  St. Clements is a parish that is fortunate to have people with many different gifts and personalities.  We have served the area since 1861 and we are still strong in our love for God!  Our sister Church is the Parish of St. George Wakefield, located within a 20 mile drive near Petersfield, and our Link Parish is the Parish of St. Paul Maddu in Central Buganda,

The people of St. Clements come together to celebrate God’s goodness and to grow in God’s love. Our work with people help us to grow and maintains a long tradition that we inherited from our ancestors with whom we share the same faith.  Our Parish is committed to reflecting who we are and how we need to express our faith to God. We have a desire to form a strong sense of unity and identity, encourage congregational development, communicate efficiently, reconcile and heal, and engage in stewardship of time, talent, and money to form partnerships with the wider church. We all come together to worship as a congregation and to reach out to community with our regular service at 11:15am and our earlier service at 7:30am.  Please contact the office at (204) 482-9486 or email us at stclementsanglicanchurch@gmail.com  for any further information.

Baptism

Baptisms are held throughout the year for those wishing to bring themselves or their children forward to signify their intention to participate in the special gifts and care that God gives through the Church.  If you are interested in Baptism please contact Mawejje at (204) 482-9486.

Christian Burial

The death of a loved one is a traumatic time for all concerned.  The clergy and members of our parish are there to offer comfort and support. Our graveyard is an inter-denominational grave site. It is cared for by staff all summer with the planting of shrubs and flowers, and the grass is mowed on a regular basis. In the winter, the snow is kept clear.  We offer plots or niches in the Columbarium, in our beautiful church yard.   Contact the Churchyard office at (204) 482-7237 if you require additional information.

Bible Study

Rev. Ken Pawluk holds a regular Bible study group in the Spring and in the Fall.  Please watch the Church Bulletin and our website for dates and times.
