Services held every Sunday starting at 11am! The congregation is led by Pastor Brian Tysdal and an elected board of elders.
Located in the town of Strasbourg between the scenic Last Mountain hills and beautiful Last Mountain Lake, Strasbourg Alliance Church serves a thriving agricultural community as well as the town and the resort communities on the eastern shore of this extensive vacation land. And all that less than an hour northwest of Regina, Saskatchewan’s capital city.
This is a member church of the Christian & Missionary Alliance in Canada and an Alliance Church in the truest sense. Having begun as a Presbyterian congregation, it went independent, embracing believers from the Brethren and a variety of other backgrounds. In the 1980’s the congregation affiliated with the Christian & Missionary Alliance (C&MA) to become Strasbourg Alliance Church and shortly after that, merged with the local Baptist Church. The present congregation is home also to a significant number of people with Free Methodist roots and some with no previous roots at all.
Housed in very spacious and attractive facilities which were completed in 1989, this community of worshipers includes the young, the old and the in between. A solid group of dedicated seniors provides maturity and stability. At the same time, a growing number of young families have chosen this community and this church as their home, making it an exciting place to be.
The total constituency embraces about 200 congregants with Sunday worship attendance averaging between 110 and 125. The church offers Sunday School and Bible classes for all ages from 10:00 am to 10:45. The worship service that follows is a blend of traditional and contemporary styles, utilizing a well-played organ and piano for some parts and a contemporary worship band for a dedicated praise time. High priority is placed on the proclamation and teaching of the Word of God. A staffed Nursery and a break-out Children’s Church round out the Sunday morning ministry features.
Opportunities for participation on Sunday and beyond Sunday are many and varied. Home-based small groups are available on a weekly basis, as are facilities-based study and prayer groups. In addition to monthly gatherings, the very vibrant Women’s Ministry hosts a major Ladies Christmas Night outreach banquet (two of them actually) annually. Youth and young adult ministry rests largely in a Tuesday night Bible study group which organizes periodic movies, worship, recreation, and social events. Great potential exists for the development of this area of ministry to meet the needs of a substantial youth population.Ministry to the residents of the Pioneer Home provides another opportunity, as does delivery, on a shared community rota, of Meals on Wheels. The congregation also has a strong history of global missions support in both finances and prayer.
Strasbourg Alliance Church values every person in our church and our community and seeks to demonstrate God’s love to them in ways that make a difference in their lives.
