Diocese of Huron wants to evict former parishioners
A battle over scripture has become a war over bricks and mortar at St. Aidan's Anglican Church.
The Diocese of Huron is taking its former parishioners at the Windsor church to court to evict them from the property at the corner of Wyandotte Street East and Westminster Boulevard.
Monday is the first day of trial in a dispute that dates back to 2008 when the majority of St. Aidan's members voted to break away from the Anglican Church of Canada and join the more conservative Anglican Network in Canada.

This is indeed a “battle over scripture”. The article well summarises the root of the issue:
“The rift in the Anglican church began in 2002 when a church in B.C. agreed to perform same-sex marriages and widened to include arguments over scripture interpretation of other issues as well.”
We see the same trend in this parish in Canada as everywhere - a church with orthodox teaching thrives, and a church with liberal teaching withers away:
“The ANiC service attracts about 120 parishioners on a given Sunday. The Anglican Church of Canada service might have six or eight.”
It is also good to read that the network in Canada appears to be growing:
“St. Aidan’s was the first parish in the Huron Diocese to split with the Anglican Church of Canada. There are now 17 churches and seven “congregations in formation” in Ontario under ANiC, which boasts parishes from British Columbia to Newfoundland.”
We remember these faithful congregations in our prayers.
We pray also for those in the ACoC that they will see the error of their ways, and have the courage to stop tolerating apostasy. If they did, this dispute would be over in a day.
