St Timothy’s Anglican Church in 100 Mile House BC is a beautiful log church with stained glass windows that reflect the Gospel stories of Jesus. We worship together on Sunday mornings at 10:30 using the Anglican Book of Alternative Services. Following worship we have a time of refreshment and conversation in our hall. We share our clergy, Rev Jo Ann Hinter, with St Peter’s Williams Lake and St Luke’s Alexis Creek.. Rev Jo Ann is with us on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month. On the alternate Sundays, our Lay Ministers of Word and Sacrament provide worship and Eucharist from Reserve Sacrament.
St Timothy’s has a Free Store that is open to the community of 100 Mile on the second Friday of each month. On the third Friday from September to May we host a free Spaghetti Dinner for the community as well. The congregation also donates to the Food Bank in our town. Once a year we have a large garage sale in conjunction with the United Church in 100 Mile. Our Coats for All program with the help of the United Church, takes place in the late fall providing clean warm coats for those who can not afford them.
We have an active Anglican Church Women group who organize a Fall tea and bazaar and a Spring Strawberry tea and bazaar.
Other activities – We have engaged in various book studies in the Fall and Spring. We have recently read “ The Stories of Jesus by Amy-Jill Levine; The Gospel of Mary Magdalene by Cynthia Bourgeault and the Book of Revelations by Elaine Pagels in conjunction with our study of Revelations. These studies have been well attended and very thoughtful and thought-provoking!
Our original church building is behind the log church. We have rented it to the Cariboo Community Lighthouse Association a charitable association who is serving the 100 Mile House community.
Lay Ministers of Word and Sacrament – Brian Blake, Shelby Byer, Doug Schindel and Sharon Williscroft.
Clergy: Rev Jo Ann Hinter.
