We acknowledge that the Church of St. Stephen and St. Bede is located on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, Cree, and Dakota Nations, and the homeland of the Metis Nation, and that we gather on Treaty 1 land. We are grateful for their stewardship of this land and their hospitality, which allows us to live, work, and serve God the Creator here.
"Go out and train everyone you meet,
far and near, in this way of life,
marking them by baptism

in the threefold name:
Father, Son and Holy Spirit."
Matthew 28:19
The Church of St. Stephen and St. Bede is active in the community, including through some of the activities pictured here.
We have added our resounding voice for healing and reconciliation, offering prayer walks and ringing our church bells in solidarity with indigenous families mourning the loss of murdered women and children.
Wednesday mornings you are invited to communion, followed by bible study when we look into God's word for direction and guidance.
The Church of St. Stephen and St. Bede is active in the community, hosting the bi-weekly Mount Royal Food Bank in partnership with Winnipeg Harvest (above).
Following the way of love, our members have advocated for traffic safety in the neighborhood, hosting a meeting of concerned residents in the area (above) and maintaining follow-up contact with City Council.  
Early in September 2015, Pastor Ted Chell rang the bell following Communion to give thanks for, and and celebrate the reign of, Queen Elizabeth II, now the longest serving monarch in British history.
