Sunday 9:00 a.m. Service
This early Sunday service takes place 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 to feel part of the group.
Sunday 11:00 a.m. Service
This is a more traditional service held in the sanctuary
(main church worship space – entrance on Quadra St) 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, free of charge for everyone.
