What are Sunday services like?

We aim to be a warm, friendly and welcoming church family.  You can expect to shake a few hands and learn a few names. We want to be genuine and authentic, sharing the love of God that we have experienced through His Son.

The Bible says that we are to praise God with "psalms, hymns and spiritual songs" (Eph 5:19), so we sing contemporary Christian praise songs as well as the good old hymns with their rich theology. 

Our church is Scripture-centred, and so whatever the Bible teaches, we believe and teach. We value preaching and teaching that is “expository”. This means making clear whatever the Bible says with sound interpretation, standing on the authority of God's Word, and declaring what it says boldly. For we don't want to preach only part of what God says, but rather the whole counsel of God.

What do I wear?

In a normal service, you will see people coming to our services in a range from casual to more formal attire.  We do not have a dress code so feel free to come in what would be appropriate for a large group gathering.

Where do I park? Is the church accessible by transit?

We have a parking lot that can fill up quickly, so it might be wise to come a few minutes before the service begins.

The Mi-Way #9 bus stops near our church at the corner of Thomas Street and Vista Blvd.  It is a 3 -5 min walk from that stop to the church building.

What about my kids?

We invite kids to be a part of our worship service as we all worship God together in singing, praying and hearing God’s word.  We value the generations worshipping together, with the little ones learning from the example and heritage of the wider church family. We also have Children's Church part-way through the service for kids up to the age of 10 that provides a time to learn more about Jesus on their level.

Will there be any surprises in the Worship service?

On the first Sunday of every month, we celebrate the Lord's Supper, also called Communion. We do ask those who are not believers in Jesus Christ to observe and allow the Bread and the Cup to pass them, since taking Communion is a public testimony of faith in the Lord Jesus. We sometimes have greeting times and interactive elements like praying together, but we don't single anyone out.

Is the church associated with any larger group?

We are affiliated with the FELLOWSHIP of Evangelical Baptist Churches in Canada (FEBCC). Click here for the national website, and here for the regional website.

How can I get connected?

We have a weekly Bible Study & Prayer Time on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm at the church, all year round.
