What to Expect at the 10:30 service

Every Sunday morning at 10:30 am we enter a time of worship in our Spirited Traditional Gathering. In addition to an inspiring “Scriptural Reflection” by Reverend Linda Hunter, this 60-70 minute gathering is full of traditional hymns, contemporary choruses and punctuated by one of two choirs as well as our morning worship band, Heartsong, twice a month. Adults, young people, families and seniors all join together in this gathering and share a community worship experience. Children remain in the service until “A Time of Child Honouring” (September – June)

Following the Spirited Traditional Gathering there is always a time of fellowship and conversation in our lounge. You also have the opportunity for private or intercessory prayer in our Chapel immediately following the worship gathering.

Celebrate Life Recovery Gathering @ Sanctuary
Dec 2 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Celebrate Life Recovery Gathering @ Sanctuary

Every Sunday for the last 25 years, a diverse group gathers in the Sanctuary for a time of worship that is unlike anything else. With music led by the amazing band – “The Cracked Pots” – you will experience what many call a “12 Step meeting with music”. Intentionally casual and friendly, this gathering is designed to support individuals and families who are on the journey of Recovery.

This 60-minute gathering is an opportunity to connect with others in Recovery, share in the Traditions and Steps of AA, and hear the message of Jesus’ unconditional love and reconciliation led by Brad Oneil, Peter Sheridan and others. You will feel completely at home grabbing a coffee, sharing a pew with both bikers and business people as we all celebrate the journey of Life Recovery.

Following the Celebrate Life Recovery Gathering is always a time of conversation in our lounge as well as an Open CA meeting (7:30 – 9:00 pm) in Room 1. The last Sunday of the month is especially unique as we celebrate our recovery birthdays (during the gathering).
