WORSHIP WITH US ON SUNDAY

You are the Church, whether you are watching the LiveStream from home or attending in person at 28 Westland Road on Sundays! We are thankful for your participation in the life of our church family, and we also appreciate your gracious understanding and patience as new technical issues with YouTube are addressed! Attached is the sermon-based study for personal or Growth Group use.


Two Venue Options! Register HERE to attend the Main Auditorium service, HERE for Fireside Room (live, traditional singing with livestream teaching on the big screen). Registration will remain open until Saturday night or until capacity is reached. 

  • Please arrive by 9:45am to sign in at the front kiosk (or side table for Fireside Room attendees).
  • As the weather gets colder we ask that you keep your coat with you at your chair (hangers have been removed from the coat racks to eliminate crowded areas).
  • If the Main Auditorium and balcony reach capacity, latecomers and those who have not pre-registered will be seated in the Fireside Room for the traditional singing and to view the LiveStream service on the big screen. 
  • Thanks for following provincial guidelines. Please wear a mask if you want to sing
  • Watch for details to come soon on a second service in the Main Auditorium beginning in mid-November.

The LiveStream is accessible through the church website
