Sunday

Sunday 9 a.m. Service

This early Sunday service takes places in our Chapel (entrance on Balmoral). It is a smaller, more informal service with a more meditative feel. Communion is served every Sunday. Regular attendees enthusiastically welcome newcomers and quickly help them feel part of the group.

Sunday 11 a.m. Service

This is a more traditional service held in the Sanctuary (main church worship space - entrance on Quadra Street) and features a choir, frequent guest musicians, a children's time and Sunday School. Children and youth regularly participate in this dynamic and multi-sensory service.

Our service is live streamed to the Internet each Sunday, fee of charge for everyone.

Coffee and friendship follow both services, with a warm welcome extended to all!

We mark special seasons and dates in the church year with a varierty of services. Some of these, such as World Communion Sunday and First Nations Sunday, are celebrated in our regular church services. Others such as Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women (Dec. 6) and The Longest Night have unique liturgy and music and often feature special guests.
