We gather together every week for worship, word and sacrament.
Gathering Times: 9:30 A.M.
Location: Fifth Ave. Cinemas
We encourage you to come in person, however, our sermons are available online.
What does a typical gathering look like?
When you arrive, there will be fresh coffee available in the foyer. Arrive a few minutes early so you can grab a coffee, say hi to someone, find a seat and get comfortable.
If you have children aged 0-10 years you can head to our Kid’s Ministry and Nursery check-in where our Kid’s Ministry Team will be waiting. Kids are dismissed just before the sermon, so bring the whole family into the main gathering room for the start of the gathering.
A typical gathering will be 80-90 minutes long, including songs led by a band, prayer, scripture reading, a sermon, and communion. Sermons are typically 35-45 minutes.
There is also a Nursing Mothers room if you need to nurse during the gathering.
In all these things, non-believers and observers are most welcome, and no one is asked to do or say anything they are not comfortable with. Just enjoy the music and glean some wisdom from the Bible.
We have a Connect Desk in the lobby of the theatre, at the back of the gathering space in theatre 3, and friendly volunteers ready to answer any questions you might have.
Do you have anything for kids?
Yes. We have vibrant Kid’s Ministry run by excellent staff and volunteers.

What is the preaching like?
We preach from the Bible in a way that is sometimes called “expositional”. Expositional preaching seeks to understand and explain what the Bible says and how God is speaking to us through it. As such, we typically preach systematically through entire books of the Bible, verse by verse. Occasionally we will address specific topics or have short topical sermon series, but even in these instances, we are grounding our preaching in a text of Scripture.
Our preaching hopes to speak the timeless truths of God’s Word in a timely way to our congregation in 21st Century Vancouver.
For examples, check out some of our previous Sunday sermons.
What is the worship music like?
Our worship music combines contemporary worship music and traditional hymns into a thoughtful liturgy that gives focus to the worship gathering.
Jesus is the focus of our worship, so while there is a band, they are not the focus. They are simply leading us in giving worship and praise to Jesus for who he is and what he has done for us.
What should I wear?
Whatever you’re comfortable with. There are no requirements to dress a certain way to join our gathering.
If I’m not a Christian, can I still attend?
Of course! Whatever you believe, whoever you are, you are welcome to join us on a Sunday. If you do join us and have further questions about what we believe and why we do what we do, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to answer any of your questions.
Can I invite a friend?
Yes! In fact, we’d encourage it. Our gatherings are designed to be accessible and invitational for people with differing church backgrounds or no church experience.
Is it ok if I’m late?
No problem. If you arrive late, for whatever reason, you can always come and join the gathering. We do however always start on time, and so we encourage coming a few minutes early so you don’t miss anything.
Is your building accessible for people with disabilities?
Yes. For our church gatherings, we access the building from Burrard and there is a ramp for anyone who might need it.
