It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of Mary Nelson, beloved wife of Cyril Nelson, on November 5, 2020, in Edmonton at the age of 92 years. Mary is survived by her son, Randy (Sheila); and daughter, Anne Marie (John) Burrill; as well as grandsons, David, Joshua, Zachary, Christian and Luke, great-grandson, Jackson; brother, William Rozecki; and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her loving husband, Cyril; sister, Rose Baydock; and brother, John Rozecki. Mary was born on December 21, 1927 in Malonton in the Manitoba Interlake district. After receiving her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Manitoba, she taught in Brandon before moving to Moose Jaw, where she met and married Cyril in 1956. She worked as a French and Latin teacher at Central Collegiate before moving to the Saskatchewan Technical Institute, where she taught English and Secretarial Sciences for over 20 years. After retirement Mary and Cyril moved to Sparwood, B.C. and later to Lethbridge. In 2013, following Cyril’s passing, Mary relocated to Edmonton to be closer to her family.
A Service in Celebration of Mary’s Life will be held for her immediate family. A video of this will then be posted for family and friends at in late November. Donations in Mary’s memory can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Photos, memories, and condolences may be shared through

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have made the difficult decision to suspend our church services as of March 15, 2020.

Please check back in regularly, as we will post updates.  Thank you.

We are pleased that you have given us this opportunity to share with you a glimpse of our Church Family. We are situated in the historical and charming community of “The Highlands” and we have been blessed with a Sanctuary and facility that is in keeping with the neighbourhood and just lends itself to worship. Thus we have the good fortune of having many inquiries about our services.

Our worship services are spiritual and Christ centered with a good mixture of the traditional and the contemporary. Our ministry of music soothes the soul, with a full complement of exceptional instrumentation from the pipe organ and grand piano to a full range of choirs including the handbells and hand chimes. There is a full Sunday School program and a supervised nursery.

Personally I have had the good fortune of ministering to this congregation now for a number of years. I have found them to be a most accepting and welcoming congregation that has always been on the leading edge of new interesting programs. I pray that you might experience the same.

Come and join us as we worship the Risen Christ!

In His Service

By God’s Grace
