Easing of COVID Restrictions
Many of the protocols and procedures we have been following this past year are no longer required. We can now gather once again to worship and be in the presence of our Lord without having to mask-up, socially distance, register, and take your temperature! We can return to life, or a version of life, pre-COVID. However, just because we are edging toward a Stage 3 reopening, does not mean that respect and care for one another is not at the forefront. Remember that everyone has their own personal comfort levels, so before you hug someone or shake their hand, ask if he or she is comfortable doing so. Please be mindful of others’ personal space and proximity, and honour someone’s desire to wear a mask and physically distance.
If you decide that you would like to return to church in-person, please only do so if you feel comfortable and ready. In-Person Service times are Saturday's at 7 pm and Sunday's at 10 am. Online services are available on Saturday at 7 pm and on Sunday at 10 am.
Kids Ministry programming is available Sunday at 10 am for Nursery - Grade 6. Saturday's at 7 pm only Nursery is available. See Welcome Back Families for more information.
Rest assured that even though we aren’t currently streaming our in-person experience, we design all the services with the same content so you’re not missing out. Our hope is to move back to streaming our in-person experience fairly soon, and we’re currently in the process of raising funds to enhance our ability to do that again. All messages are also available on demand.
* Sherwood Park Alliance Church will continue to follow the latest government authority COVID-19 protocols and guidelines. If required, a stage may be paused to respond to the direction given at regional or provincial levels.
Young Adult ministries exists to grow in relationship with each other, thrive in community together, and grow in our relationship with Jesus. We believe that Jesus has called us out of isolation and into a journey with Him and those around us. We strive to be a place where every young adult feels known and loved, and where authenticity and vulnerability help us to walk alongside each other no matter the circumstance.
This summer, join us on Thursday evenings at 7 pm. We will gather in the back field at the church for a time of community and chill hang outs.

On behalf of Lori Henry, it is with profound grief and sadness, but greater hope for eternity that we share news of the passing of her beloved Henry, from a courageous battle with cancer, on July 21. Wally & Lori have been active participants in our church ministry for several years and are loved by many. Wally was a deeply respected member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, which included a lengthy posting at the Sherwood Park detachment prior his retirement 2015. A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, August 14, 10:30 am at the Sherwood Park Alliance Church. Those unable to attend in person are welcome to participate via live stream. Lori requests those wishing to express sympathies consider making a donation to the Second Chance Animal Rescue Society, in Wally’s name.
