Terence Chandra

Priest In Charge,
St. John’s (Stone) Church

Saint John, New Brunswick


Terence was born and raised in Fredericton, New Brunswick. He graduated with an Honours degree in History from the University of New Brunswick and then went on to do an M.Div at Wycliffe College. Terence married Jasmine in 2006 and felt a strong calling to return to his home Province. Terence and Jasmine served in various parish settings for the first 8 years of ministry. They both had a vision for more community-based work and in 2014 Terence and Jasmine launched a community outreach organization now called “Pennies and Sparrows”. Pennies and Sparrows focuses on repairing the social fabric in the city of Saint John. Through relationship-based programs and projects, this ministry engages with some of the most marginalized people in the community. In 2020 Terence and Jasmine became co-priests in charge of Stone Church. Terence and Jasmine have two kids and find that sharing jobs and sharing child care, while at times complicated, has been one of the greatest joys in life (and can only be accomplished by the grace of God).
