Edmonton Holyrood Church Profile

9505 – 79 Street, Edmonton, AB T6C 251



Holyrood Mennonite Church is a Christian community within the Anabaptist theological tradition, where God’s abundant hospitality is experienced, and where the adventure of following Jesus is encouraged. As a small intercultural and intergenerational church, seniors and young families of European and African backgrounds strive to make a difference by supporting one another as a community of faith. We are a member of Mennonite Church Alberta, and through them a part of the Mennonite Church Canada faith community of over 200 congregations across the country.



We contribute to the mission, peace and development work of MCA, MC Canada, MCC Alberta, the Edmonton Centre for Newcomers and Ten Thousand Villages. As a congregation, we are united by our commitment to follow Jesus. Providing a strong foundation of faith to our children, youth and adults through Sunday School, and Bible Study is our focus. Sunday morning worship music alternates between traditional, contemporary, or West African sounds with percussion instruments and hand clapping!

Holyrood in Edmonton

The City of Edmonton is situated in Central Alberta, on Treaty 6 Territory, the traditional lands of First Nations and Metis people.  The area has a long history in settlement of displaced persons and refugees from wars and famine, most recently from the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, and Asia. Many festivals showcase the great diversity of people and cultures in our city which is only 118 years old and has a population of about 1 million.

Edmontonians love their meandering, 150 km long North Saskatchewan River valley that is the place to walk, run, bike, and breathe. Unobstructed by ships and tankers, the river looks like it waits for the voyageur’s canoe and kayak. Fabulous recreation centers give respite from snow shovelling in the winter, every neighborhood has a skating rink. Alberta’s big backyard beckons in all direction: 3 ½ hours north to camping at Lesser Slave Lake, west to Jasper for Rocky Mountain skiing and hiking; in summer, long, easy road trips through central grasslands, southern ranch lands and northern boreal forests have their own wow factor.



In church as in nature, God’s spirit and grace be with you!
