Welcome to God’s Country Parish
Welcome to the beautiful, rural country Parish of North Essa consisting of Christ Church-St. Jude’s Anglican Church in Ivy and St. George’s Anglican Church in Utopia. We are two long-standing family churches who truly live out of faith in our Lord Jesus Christ in our relationships with one another.
We believe that all is possible with God. We enjoy coming together to praise and give thanks to God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit for all His blessings in our lives. As Christians, we want to make a difference in our community, and we enjoy exploring new and creative ways to put our faith in action in our community and beyond.
Come and worship with us. Enjoy our casual atmosphere. Pray with us. Sing with us. Laugh with us. Learn with us. And break bread with us, all to the glory of God. When you leave, breathe in the fresh country air under an expansive blue sky. You are in God’s country. It doesn’t get much better than this!
Blessings to you,
The Reverend Connie Phillipson
Incumbent, The Parish of North Essa
