Sunday, October 5th
12-Step Non-Denominational
Communion Service

12 Step Non-denominational Communion Service for those in recovery and those still struggling with Additions

St. John the Divine Anglican Church invites the community to a special 12-step non-denominational Communion service next Sunday, October 5th at 4pm. All are welcome, especially members of AA, Al-Anon, NA, their families and friends. The church is located at the corner of Harmston and 5th Streets in Courtenay.

This 12-step Communion service is both a celebration and a prayer. It is a prayer of gratitude for those working through the 12-step program and on the path to recovery and a prayer for those still suffering from addictions. The service follows the form of a traditional communion service (using non-alcoholic wine) and incorporates each of the 12 steps. The service provides a chance for mutual support and a way to work the 11th step: "Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out."

For more information about the service, phone St. John the Divine Anglican Church, 250-334-4331
