Welcome to St Aidan's
God is calling St. Aidan’s to be a vibrant worshipping presence in Oakville by nurturing and empowering its people of all ages to grow in their relationship with God, with each other and with the wider community.
St. Aidan’s Anglican Church has been an integral part of the West River Community in Oakville for over 67 years. Our church is located one block east of Kerr Street, at 318 Queen Mary Drive, at Stewart Street (see map under “Contact Us”). We serve the communities of West River, Kerr Village and South Dorval – between 16 Mile Creek in the east, the QEW to the north, Burton Road to the west and south to Lake Ontario.
Centrally located at the corner of Queen Mary Drive and Stewart Street, our facilities include a fully flexible, air conditioned and accessible main floor space for meetings, concerts or other events. Accessible washrooms and a wheelchair access ramp from Stewart Street is available for this space. Below grade, a main hall, two smaller meeting rooms, a kitchen and washrooms are available. At present there is no wheelchair access to the lower level, but we are looking at options for making this space more accessible.
We welcome inquiries about the use of our space for family or community events, small group meetings and community-based programs. Please contact the Parish Office for details.
Music Production and Recording
St. Aidan’s sanctuary space is an excellent venue for sound and music production, and for both virtual and live concerts. Inquiries from vocal and instrumental groups interested in recording their music are welcome.
“We recently recorded a virtual concert at St. Aidan’s and we were very happy with the results.
It is an intimate space with very good acoustics and a lovely altar area for background visuals.
Their grand piano is a beautiful instrument and another asset to consider.
Staff are friendly and helpful which added to the overall experience.
We were pleased with the results and would be happy to recommend them for your recording needs without hesitation.”
- Sabatino Vacca, Artistic Director, Southern Ontario Lyric Opera (SOLO)
