About the Table

"Christ revealed in daily life"


To love God, love each other, and love and bless our neighbours so that we may see Christ revealed in every day life.

Saanich Peninsula

More than 350,000 residents call Greater Victoria home, yet 95% of these people do not attend a Christian worship gathering on any given week. As far as we know, Brentwood Bay does not have an active church.

The Table was initially launched in downtown Victoria in Sept 2009, meeting in Church of Our Lord.  The Table’s broader aim is to launch hubs of Christian mission throughout the area, including the Saanich Peninsula. Jonathan Ellis  and his wife, Becky, were commissioned to establish The Table Peninsula. They recently moved to pastor a church in Vic West.

Rod and Lynne Ellis have now taken on the pastoral care and post COVID re-launch of the Table Peninsula.

We are part of the Anglican Network in Canada (ANiC) under the umbrella of the Anglican Church of North America (ACNA).

To be a Gospel-formed community of believers with a mission.

Gospel: The Gospel is God's message of good news drawing us into a personal relationship with Him.

Formed: We are in a process of formation through the work of the Holy Spirit.

Community: We are created in the image of God to live in relationship with one another as a community.

Believers: We are a people of faith sharing God's blessing in the world.

Mission: We are commissioned by Jesus to share the gospel, the good news of how we can come to know him, and his purpose for our lives.

Why ‘The Table’?

It is around a table that real sharing, connection, communication, relationship, and business often take place! The ‘table’ is a symbol of worship: communion with God, community with one another, and service in meeting needs. We invite you to join us as we commune around God's banquet table.

Every member ministry using our gifts in worship and mission.
