Whether you're new to the area, new to our church, or just new to this site, we're glad you're here!
Sunday is our weekly celebration where people spanning the generations (we have newborns to 94 and everything in between!) gather together to worship. We start off with pre-service prayer at 8:30am (all are welcome) before launching in to our two main services at 9 & 11.
We usually begin with corporate worship through singing followed by prayer and listenting to the Lord together. After some brief announcements, we continue our worship by reading the Word, hearing a message, and responding through song and prayer. We always close the service with a blessing or "benediction."
Our children’s ministry is run by a team of dedicated and trained volunteers who long for kids to know God.
Kids programs are available in both services (ages 3-9), and kids will dismissed after the first or second song (but please check in your kids upon arrival at the Multipurpose Room if you can!)
The kids usually start with supervised playtime and singing before splitting into smaller classes or groups for a Bible lesson and activity.
This is especially for those who are sick or not feeling well, travelling, or unable to gather in-person for health or other reasons. We encourage you to come in person for the best way to be encouraged by the faith community and grow together in our faith!
We are blessed to have some amazing worship leaders and musicians who love God, including several current and former studio and professional musicians. Overall, we maintain a contemporary style of worship, incorporating modern songs into our services. We also love to inject some vintage vibes, as well as always singing together at least one cherished hymn that has stood the test of time!
We have parking available at the front, side, and back of the church, with handicapped parking by the front and side entrances. The church is all on one level with no stairs to contend with and we have a wheelchair designated area in our sanctuary for wheelchair users and their companions. Just ask one of our door greeters to show you where!
We also are pleased to provide message manuscripts for the hearing impaired. Please contact us to help us prepare for you!
We are a part of a relationally-based, co-operative fellowship of churches known as the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada (PAOC). For more information on our beliefs and why we partner with the PAOC, check out the beliefs section of our website.
Lots! We have a calendar of regularly occurring and one-time events listed on our events page. Some weekly events include Life Groups, daily supporting the Errington Elementary breakfast program, community support groups (NA), Oceanside Prayer (Tuesdays, currently on hold), monthly prayer and worship evenings, regular youth and young adult events, women's events, and so much more!
More than we can list here, but a good summary is in this video:
You bet we do! But because we have a lot of women pastors and leaders, we get asked about it a lot, so we've compiled some resources for you!
Our network of churches recently released a statement on gender equality. We are a conservative denomination that takes the Scriptures seriously, so we think it says something when they release a statement for our 1,200 churches across Canada on this.
And we have a few great resources in our library so just ask us for recommendations!
