Christian Reformed Church of St. Albert
Opportunities for Connection
This page provides details on a handful of ways to get connected within the church community through our various ministries. Some of these include opportunities to volunteer in various aspects of church life which can provide deeper connection with the community. Contact Pastor Tony or anyone on Council for details on volunteering.
Pastor Tony is available to meet with you if you are in need of a listening ear, a word of encouragement, prayer, or if you would like to learn more about our church and/or the Christian life and faith. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the church at 780-458-7568.
Several times per year the church community enjoys a potluck downstairs after the church service. These are great chances to enjoy good food and fellowship with great people. Bring a dish if you are able, but if you can't, come anyways (no cost)! Look for announcements during the service or in the bulletin as they come up.

At our Friendship group, we share God’s love with people who have disabilities; enabling them to become an active part of God’s family. Together we sing praises; delve into God’s word through an interactive Bible story; and then, further discuss these stories over related activities and a snack. We meet every first and third Wednesday of the month, 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm at the church. Call Irene at 780-458-3091 for more information.
The bulletin often has additional events and ways to get connected through the church, including with the broader Christian Reformed Church communities of the Edmonton area.
Fellowship at the Sunday Worship Services
Before and after the Sunday morning service are great times to meet others from the church and get connected. There are always bagels/snacks made available along with coffee and juice. Come early, stay late, strike up a conversation, or even invite someone out to lunch afterwards.
Every Sunday morning during the worship service we also have children's ministries. Nursery for children 0 to 3, and Sunday School for age 3 to grade 6. Sunday school involves a variety of stories from storytellers and interactive classroom time with teachers, making crafts and learning about God's love. See the Children's Ministries page for further information.
Each summer a community garden is made available to those who wish to use it. Typically those wanting to secure a spot will need to help with the spring and fall cleanup.
Contact Johanna Buisman for details on securing a spot or helping out (call the church for contact info).
Annual Rodeo BBQ
Each summer we celebrate the St Albert Rainmaker Rodeo with a free BBQ after the church service. All are welcome to enjoy hamburgers, hotdogs or veggie burgers, all at no cost! It starts immediately after the morning worship service which is finished around 11:30am.
Note: Due to COVID, this event will not occur in 2021.
The Facebook group (Christian Reformed Church of St. Albert) is an active place for community postings about ongoing church life. This is a closed group, available to regular attenders of the church. You can request access to join and an administrator will get back to you.
Bible Basics Study Group
Every Monday evening at 6:45pm a group meets to study the Bible Basics. Contact Darryl Hordyk at email@example.com for more information.
Prayer is a vital part of the church life at St. Albert Christian Reformed Church. There is a Prayer Team that gathers for meetings after the Worship Service, generally on the second Sunday of each month. Contact Douwe S. or Pastor Tony for more details, prayer requests or to check it out.
Terrae Pines is booked every Wednesday at 5:00pm from late April to early September for a group of golfers from St. Albert CRC. If you would like to join or have any questions feel free to call Tom Vandermeer at 780-932-1500.
There are a lot of areas in the church that need volunteers. To get an idea of the different types of roles there are, take a look at our Sign Up Sunday sheet. We use these sheets each September to get an up to date list of where people want to volunteer their time and energy, but the Deacons can accept submissions at any time.
