Anglican Chaplain, Paul Robinson

About the Anglican Network in Canada

The Anglican tradition was formed by men and women trying to make a middle way between the extremes of Roman Catholicism and European Protestantism. As the centuries have progressed, we have consistently asked, “How can we be a “both/and” church rather than an ‘either/or’ church?” For example, we hold the Scriptures in the highest authority, while also placing ourselves under the authority of the tradition and councils of the Church. As another example, in the Anglican Network in Canada we try our best to be both catholic and evangelical. 

Our worship follows the traditional liturgical pattern, with Holy Eucharist being the center of our celebration and life as a community. 

Our diocese, the Anglican Network in Canada (ANiC) is affiliated with the Anglican Church in North America and part of the global Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans which affirms the Jerusalem Declaration. ANiC also remains affiliated with the Anglican Church of South America, one of 38 jurisdictions in the worldwide Anglican Communion.

Chaplain profiles

Paul Robinson

A native of Maple Ridge, B.C., I moved to Vancouver in 2014 to intern at Sojourn Anglican Church and pursue a master’s degree in theology at Regent College. I am married to Kristin, who is a registered nurse, an excellent cook, and a serious lover of people. We live with nine other people in the Saint Thomas Mission House on the northeast side of campus. We want nothing more than for our house to be a home-away-from-home for UBC students. 

I am very excited to be at UBC. I love the life and energy of university. I love the pursuit of knowledge and wisdom that characterizes UBC and the intellectual passion of the community. As a Christian campus chaplain, I am passionate about the flourishing of the Church on campus, but I am also passionate about the flourishing of UBC… and, of course, of UBC students! 

Along with my work at Sojourn Church, and being a chaplain, I am also a barista at the UBC JJ Bean. In my ‘spare time,’ I enjoy folk music, rock climbing, going for hikes, eating delicious food, and reading way too many books at once. My greatest desire is to joyfully life the life of God to the full and to welcome others into that life. 

Formal background

B.A. in Christianity and Culture and Biblical Studies from Trinity Western University (2014). M.A. Theological Studies from Regent College (2018). Ordained a deacon in the Anglican Network in Canada in September 2018.
