WORSHIP WITH PRIDE
A Community Mission in the Hydrostone area of Halifax
Based out of historic St. Marks Anglican Church in Halifax, Nova Scotia, this site will serve as our new missional base here in the Halifax region. Lead by our Pastrix, Nichola Fish-Cumine, Worship with PRIDE (WWP) is a community that seeks to be a safe and inclusive faith community for people of all gender identities, sexual orientations, marital status, family configuration, abilities, ages, races, ethnicities, faiths, and socio-economic circumstances, who will be encouraged to participate fully in all aspects of the life and work of our loving ministry, thereby enriching us all.
You can watch our monthly services online, or see when our next in person event is on our events page or below!
We are always looking for people who want to be a part of this new and vibrant community. Interested in learning more? Reach out to our leadership team below:

Rev. Nichola Fish-Cumine (She/Her)
Our Pastrix, Rev. Nichola (Nic) Fish-Cumine is ordained as an Anglican Priest with the Diocese of NS & PEI (May 30th, 2019). Rev. Nichola is often referred to as a "pioneering priest" in the diocese. She is a progressive woman who loves mission and ecumenism, and she is a member of the Connectors Two Cohort.
After being approached by others within the community who had a similar vision for change, Nichola decided to help make that a reality here in Halifax. Rev. Nichola is an advocate for social justice, and her favourite stole reads: "Love God with all your heart, mind, body & soul" on one side and, "Love your neighbours: No exceptions" on the other. She would love it if you say "Hi" when you see her out and about in our neighbourhood.
R DYLAN STEWART, CMJ (HE/HIM/HIS)
Founding member of the new Proud NS and PEI incentive, as well as one of the original members of the Worship With Pride mission, Br. Dylan is engaged in ministries across the HRM and abroad. As a dispersed vowed religious, he lives a life based on four principles: Tenderness, Justice, Humility, and Contemplation.
Originally from the South Shore of NS and raised in the independent Baptist movement, Br. Dylan left when he came out as gay. After wandering for years, he decided to find a place to accept himself and one where he could thrive and grow and bring justice to others like him. He then started in the Roman Catholic Church before he found the Anglican Church. He currently is a Lay Minister at the Cathedral Church of All Saints in Halifax.
He lives with his partner in Halifax.
He is available for public speaking and preaching across the Diocese
