The composition of the congregation demonstrates great diversity. It includes many people who have moved to St. John’s from other parts of Canada and the world, who come from a variety of denominations, and who find in St. David’s an “extended family” for those who are separated by distance from their own families. Many members of the congregation are here on assignments of varying duration, and to that extent are transient. The congregation is also blessed with a solid core of permanent members who provide a firm base of continuity in the life of the congregation. This combination of people makes St. David’s very alive and dynamic.
