VISION AND MISSION
Every Church is called to worship God, make disciples, and meet human needs in Jesus’
name. At St. Thomas’, Bracebridge, we believe that living out this call in our time
and culture demands a bold commitment to biblical hospitality. Therefore, we seek God’s grace
and the guidance of the Holy Spirit to teach us what it means to welcome others, even when doing
so stretches our human comfort zones, so that together we may experience and extend the love of
Christ, growing and gladly serving in His name. Amen.
Because God gave us His Son, we will pray and learn and act so that we may give of ourselves to
others, graciously and without condition, following Christ’s selfless example. Empowered by the
Holy Spirit, we commit to offering the best hospitality we can to all people, whether near or far.
Archbishop Anne’s Motto for 2019
“Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my chosen people.
The people I formed for myself, that they might declare my praise” (Isaiah 43:19, 20b, 21)
