St. John's Richmond Church is an evangelical church for Christians wanting to worship God in an Anglican setting. We are a Christian church in Richmond, BC.
St. John's Richmond Church is located at:
St. John's Richmond supports various missions. Here is a list of our active mission partnerships:
Anglican Network in Canada
SJR is one of dozens of congregations across Canada who are part of the Anglican Network in Canada (ANiC). See ANiC's webpage for everything from the latest information and news, to founding documents and events in our history.
ANiC is, in turn, part of the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA), a unified group of thousands of Christians worshiping Christ in an orthodox, historic Anglican setting. Through ANiC and ACNA, SJR is a living part of the global Anglican communion.
SJR Understands Adoption:
Ephesians 1 and Romans 8 speak of becoming a Christian as being adopted into the family of God, at His initiative. We can call Him Abba Father. Many people at SJR--from the Pastor to many children--have been adopted twice: once by God and again by loving and committed adoptive families within our congregation. Some of our families have worked with an organization in Thailand called Agape Home. See a YouTube video to get a glimpse into Agape, and the work they are doing.
Trinity Lutheran Church
In 2012 SJR moved to Trinity Lutheran Church (TLC), part of the Lutheran Church of Canada (LCC). Discussions have been happening at the highest levels between ANiC and the LCC; the LCC supports the stand for the gospel that ANiC has taken. At the grassroots level, this plays out across Canada as several ANiC congregations are housed in LCC facilities. Find out more about Trinity Lutheran Church.
Church of the Good Shepherd (Richmond):
We are partners with Good Shepherd Vancouver in planting a new Cantonese congregation in Richmond. Good Shepherd (Richmond) was established in May 2010 and meets weekly on Sundays with Anglican Book of Common Prayer services in Cantonese. See Good Shepherd's Website for further information.
Broadmoor Baptist Church:
From our earliest days as a church plant from St. John's Shaughnessy Anglican Church in Vancouver, Canada, we partnered with and were housed at Broadmoor Baptist Church in central Richmond. Broadmoor has a history of planting congregations. BBC and SJR enjoyed a unique collaboration in a shared Sunday School ministry which fostered creative efforts to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ to the children of both congregations.

The Ratanak Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing help and hope to the Khmer people of Cambodia. Ratanak means precious stone or gem in the Khmer language. In this case, Ratanak was the name of a little girl who, in late 1989, lay in a hospital in north west Cambodia. As her mother looked on, the doctors tried to save her life. There was no medication or medical equipment available to save her. Founded by St John's Richmond member Brian McConaghy, the Ratanak Foundation is dedicated to bringing spiritual hope to the Khmer people by assisting Cambodia rebuild the social and medical services which would have saved the life of the little girl named Ratanak. For more information go to Ratanak's new Facebook page.
The Bread Ministry:
One of our local outreach projects centers around food. Food for eating; food for the soul. Every Thursday night we collect that day's fresh and unsold products from the Cobs Bakery at No. 2 Road and Blundell. We then bag the products and distribute to families and individuals in our local community. Thank you Cobs!
Good tasting bread is a great conversation starter, and a real need for many in Richmond.
