Christ Church Kelowna is a small Anglican mission in the Anglican Network in Canada (ACNA) that is all about the Gospel. We want to follow Jesus, proclaim Jesus, and serve Jesus as He establishes God’s Kingdom of grace in our world.

And as he wanders in forced exile, David recalls, with painful longing, the joyous experience … Read more
The great Baptist preacher of Victorian England, C.H.
