Our Mission & Vision
At Christ Church, our mission is to love our neighbour as ourselves and to serve the community in which we stand.
At Christ Church Belleville, our goal is to continue to deepen our bonds within the family of the parish and in our wider community, so that our worship speaks of the authenticity of our work and mission as an Anglican Parish. That we continue to grow and learn together and to support one another in the household of faith, through study, worship and praying together is the foundation of our purpose and journey.
As we continue to care for one another pastorally, we pray that we continue to be guided by the Holy Spirit in truth and justice and that we may continue to receive God’s Grace in who we seek to be for one another and those who look for a spiritual home and community.
Mission & Purpose
Christ Church Belleville has always held a strong sense and call to social justice and equity for all. As Jesus proclaimed in the temple at the beginning of his ministry … from Luke 4:18, ‘The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight to the blind, to set the oppressed free….’ a high calling, but both a mandate and invitation to be a community who love our neighbour as we love ourselves, openly, unconditionally understanding that every person is a loved child of God.
We enjoy a strong and traditional liturgical life through the worship and traditions of the Anglican Church and Prayer book and we love to sing and laugh.
We welcome everyone who comes through our doors, inclusive of need, race or sexuality. All have a place in the household of faith.
Discover something about us through our website and hopefully by joining us in worship.

Prophetic exemplary life
…being what we are called to be…a voice in the wilderness, upholding the poor and the oppressed, feeding the hungry and homeless. Not being frightened to speak out against injustice and inequity. That all that we believe and value maybe be seen not just in words and presence but in action as well.
