The Rev. Alexandra McIntosh was born and raised in Toronto, and with deep roots in this city, she is thrilled to be ministering to her beloved hometown. She has been engaged in pastoral work for 10 years, beginning with a passion for youth ministry, participating in and leading volunteer trips in Quebec, Yukon, New Orleans, and France. Alexandra has been an ordained priest since February 2023, after earning her Master of Divinity from Trinity College in 2023. In the past, she has worked as a Pastoral Associate, a Youth Ministry Coordinator for the Diocese of Toronto, and a Pharmacy Assistant in a small community pharmacy in the Junction.

Alexandra was as surprised as anyone when she began her journey to the priesthood and is deeply thankful for the gentle leading of the Spirit and God’s faithfulness in her life.  After graduating with a B.A. in English Literature, and Diaspora and Transnational Studies from the University of Toronto she began to explore faith in earnest and fell in love with the grace-filled, generous, radical call of Jesus and the cross. Recognizing in her peers a deep longing for something different than the disingenuousness of social media, and the desire to be connected to something other than wifi, Alexandra sees good news in the changing landscape of the church and spirituality for this generation.  She believes there is room for everyone at God’s table, and that God can make all things new… from our biggest mistakes, to our most petty moments.  When not at church you can find her at a concert,  on a yoga mat, or trying to get her 10000 steps in. She is married to Christian who is a Brewmaster in West Toronto.

The Story behind our

Tracking Organ

Our magnificent three manual, tracker-action organ was installed in the chancel of the church in the spring of 1982 and dedicated to the Glory of God and in memory of those who died in the First World War and the Second World War.

The organ, built by the Karl Wilhelm Company of Mont St. Hilaire, Quebec, has a classical continental design. The case is made of white oak and the pipe shades are of carved butternut. Voiced in the classic French style, its 36 stops and 50 ranks are capable of interpreting a wide variety of organ literature.

Installation required considerable changes to the chancel including moving the altar forward and arranging choir seating to either side. These renovations prompted the design and production of our award-winning Benedicite Kneelers, done in needlepoint by a dedicated group of church members.
