Strasbourg Alliance Church
The Strasbourg Alliance Church is first and foremost a group of people who have discovered that Jesus Christ is alive and has come and brought to each one freedom, hope and life. It is our desire that we live authentically and reflect accurately the love of the Heavenly Father who cares deeply for all people. We are a church that meets regularly for worship that is common to orthodox and historic Christian faith and we are evangelically-minded with a clear commitment to the authority of the Bible. On Sunday mornings we have Sunday School at 9:00 a.m. followed by Worship Service at 10:00 a.m. We also have weekly Bible studies, youth functions, music groups, women’s and men’s ministries and frequent fellowship times.
The Alliance Church in Strasbourg has deep historic roots. The Eastmount Baptist Church began in 1921 and moved into town from the countryside in 1969. An Arlington Beach Mission Field of the Presbyterian Church of Canada was organized in 1928. The Strasbourg members of this organization began meeting at the former Methodist church building under the name of Knox Presbyterian Church. This church changed its name to the Strasbourg Gospel Church in 1963 and then in 1980 it became known as the Strasbourg Alliance Church. The current building used in worship is an extensive addition to the Eastmount Baptist Church building. This addition was completed in 1987. Today people from these and other denominational backgrounds worship together in a spirit of unity. This is truly an ‘alliance’ church!
The Strasbourg Alliance Church is one of over 400 churches of the Christian & Missionary Alliance Church of Canada webpage: www.cmalliance.ca
Our denomination has a strong missions orientation. We support and encourage the growth of the church not only in Canada but around the world.
Our vision statement is: “Empowered by the Spirit of God and seeking his truth through the Bible, as disciples of Jesus, we are devoted to bringing faith, hope and love to everyone in our community, our country and the world, as He leads.”

St. John Lutheran Church
St. John is a community of faith where both guest and host can feel celebrated. It is a place where the generations mix and match and each person can truly get the sense that her or his life is interesting, remarkable, grace-filled and worthy of note. What keeps us connected one to another, is being sensitive to the God-given gifts of others. It means listening to hear and not to refute; it means showing care rather than judgment.
St. John is a community of faith where all are welcome. It is a community of faith that strives to create and maintain a hospitable, nurturing place to grow in faith. In a welcoming place, we are encountered by God’s grace as it relates to our own stories and the stories of those we love. We can honestly say to you, whatever your age, whatever your story, whoever you are – “We are glad you’re here!”
Remember this invitation – come and be part of St. John’s continuing story. Come and visit. Come and learn. Come and worship. Come and see. Our Lord and Saviour whom we serve welcomes all and celebrates that there are no strangers, but sisters and brothers on a great pilgrimage to a promised wonderful and future glory.
Our Sunday worship and church school begins at 9:30 am. Holy Communion is celebrated the first and third Sunday of each month. The fourth Sunday is an alternative worship service featuring music from the praise band “Spirit Led”. Our church is accessible to the disabled.

Our mission statement:
Strasbourg United Church is LOVE… a
Living community of faith whose
Outreach through worship, caring and
Visiting promotes justice for all by
Encouraging respect & sharing God’s love.
The theology of our faith family is one of grace. No one is excluded from God’s grace and so we also extend unconditional love and grace; offering communion to all, and accepting all requests for services of baptism and marriage.
As a congregation of The United Church of Canada, we pride ourself on welcoming everyone the way Jesus did, regardless of age, race, class, gender, orientation, physical ability or their belief system.
The Strasbourg United Church as we know it, had its beginning in the pioneering days at the turn of the century as early church services were held in homes and various other buildings until a Methodist church was built in 1906 and a Presbyterian church was built in 1910. In 1918, they joined to become a Union Church in Strasbourg, which then became part of The United Church of Canada when it was formed in 1925. Many changes have taken place over the years: the congregation has always worshiped in this location and in 2012, celebrated the 25th year of the current building.
Like other Christian churches, The United Church of Canada is rooted in God, Jesus, and the Bible. We have two sacraments, baptism and communion, both of which are open to people of any age. We respect and recognize the baptism from other Christian denominations.
The United Church works together with other Christian churches whenever possible, and partners with other organizations and people of other religions in Canada and throughout the world, on matters of social justice, peace and human dignity.
We see people as unique, loved creations of God and welcome all people to the full life of Christian community, including marriage. We believe God intends loving relationships to be faithful, responsible, just, healing, and sustaining of the couple and those around them, and that such relationships require preparation and nurture. The United Church celebrates the marriage of same-sex couples, previously divorced people, couples of different religions.

St. Rita Catholic Church
The Catholic families of Strasbourg area were first served by priests coming from Grayson and later Southey. Services were held at peoples homes, occasionally Last Mountain Hotel and a few times at the Town Hall. Through Father Ruben’s (who came from Govan) dedication and hard work, a church was built or obtained, about the year 1936. Also at that time (1936) a Rectory was built at Govan and Govan officially became a parish with Strasbourg becoming a Mission of Govan and was served from there. In 1983, Strasbourg became a Mission of Southey and has been served by Southey ever since.
Over the years the church has seen many changes, improvements have been made and numbers fluctuate. Though always a small congregation, the members pull together like family and we enjoy a near full house every weekend. We are very fortunate to have mass every week on a rotating schedule – Sat. night mass at 7:00 p.m.; Sundays at 9:00 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. Presently our priest is Father Reymundo Assis.
Outside of church activities parishioners of St. Rita are involved in delivering Meals on Wheels, Services at Last Mountain Pioneer Home, World Day of Prayer, Festival of Praise, Prelude to Christmas and Interfaith Sunday in summer.
