Description & Services
We are a small rural parish comprising the churches of St. James in Brooklyn, and St. John the Baptist in Poplar Grove. We are located in the county of West Hants, Nova Scotia and are a part of the Anglican Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
The ministry in our parish is a little different than most Anglican churches. The chief difference lies in the fact that we do not have a minister in our parish. Our weekly Sunday services are generally in the form of Morning Prayer, usually from the Book of Alternative Services, though we do still use the Book of Common Prayer on occasion. These services are led by members of the parish, who conduct the entire service, including a sermon! Though we do not have a rector, we do hold a Communion Service about once every month, with the help of retired clergy from the area.
During the summer we will often hold an Evensong Service at St. John the Baptist in Poplar Grove. This service uses the Book of Common Prayer, and it is a wonderful, reflective and peaceful time in this beautiful church. Hymns are accompanied by a very fine Bell reed organ. Please check our schedule for service times.
