What are Sunday Mornings Like?

For Kids?

Kids Church is available for children aged 2-10!  Parents or guardians may sign their children in at the DaySchool entrance in the foyer before the service begins.  After the worship portion of our service, the kids will be escorted by our workers to classrooms where they will have a Bible story, craft and snack.  Our nursery is unsupervised at this time.

All of our children's workers and helpers have fulfilled the training requirements and have undergone a screening process which includes current police checks.

Where do I park?

You can enter from Towerhill or Fairbairn streets and park wherever you can find a spot. The lot surrounds the building, and you will find Accessible Parking near both the North and Main entrances (you'll see a car-port at the Main entrance).

Is your Church Wheelchair Accessible?

Our Main entrance way and our North entrance doors are wheelchair accessible and our building is all on one level. Washrooms are also wheelchair accessible.

What do I wear? Will I be comfortable?

No matter what you wear, we'll be glad you're here. If you're concerned about what you should wear, you'll find people in jeans and t-shirts, and "all dressed up"; but, the majority of people tend to dress "business casual." You will find lots of space to sit and be comfortable in our air-conditioned building.

A Typical Service Looks Like This:

  1. We express our love and thanks to God in song with our volunteer team of musicians and singers for about the first half hour of the service; style varies. 
  2. Dismiss the kids aged 2-10 to their programs. 
  3. Family News and Announcements: this is the part of the service where you can find out what's going on in the church community, and what kind of Events we have coming up.
  4. Saying Hello: before COVID we'd have a time of greeting where someone would come up, shake your hand, and make you feel welcome. 
  5. Giving: we carve out a portion of time each service to give congregation members an opportunity to financially support the work going on at the church and in the community. No one will pressure you to give, and you're not expected to. If you feel like making a donation, you can do so using the envelopes at the Welcome Centre and you'll receive a tax receipt.
  6. Message: one of the Pastors or a guest (often a missionary) will talk about God and the Bible for 20-30 minutes. Do you need a Bible for following along? If you want one, ask an Usher!
  7. Prayer: We'll close the service with a time of prayer and reflection. Often, the worship team will come back up to play a song. 
  8. Fill out a Visitor Card after the service and hand it in to the Welcome Center in the foyer and receive a goody bag as our expression of thanks! 

How can I get connected?

On Sunday mornings you'll see people with name-tags; these folks are trained volunteers, who will know where to direct you. Don't forget to fill out a Visitor Card at the Welcome Center!
