I'M NEW HERE
We are a group that gathers as a community of ordinary people who have experienced the transforming reality of God's love, the renewing presence of the Holy Spirit and the risen power of Jesus Christ.
Part of our calling as Point Grey Church is to welcome (scholars, students and residents in a city many call home for short amounts of time); to Bless (Strengthen through community, teaching and opportunities to serve) and to Send (often back to the homes that they had left as better equipped and encouraged witnesses for Jesus). We have alumni of Point Grey Church in dozens of countries around the world and we look forward to welcoming YOU as you move to Vancouver to study, work and live.
Sunday Service: 10:30am 4509 W 11th Ave Vancouver, BC We are located near UBC in the West Point Grey neighborhood of Vancouver. If you're a student, just hop on the 99, and get off on Sasamat!
What To Expect
What should I wear?
God is far more interested in our hearts than our appearance. So come as you are. For some that's a coat and tie; for others it's blue jeans.
What happens when I arrive?
The Welcome Desk is in the lobby where there are people who can help answer any questions you may have or help you find your way around. Look for the hanging "Welcome" sign (like the picture on the right). When you go into the sanctuary, you'll receive a worship bulletin that will guide you through the service, and we will provide simple instructions along the way to help you know when to do things like stand or sit.
What about my kids?
Please sign your child in at the Welcome Centre prior to the service.
Nursery Care is provided for children ages 0-2 years old. The Nursery is located on the main floor just off of the sanctuary/lobby. Parents can drop off their children anytime before or during the service. You are also welcome to bring your child into the service with you. We celebrate kids and their families and welcome them as part of our church family.
Children ages 3 through grade 5 During the 10:30 a.m. service, kids will start their morning with the main church gathering and will be dismissed part way through the service to learn about God and His Word in a nurturing and engaging environment designed just for them call J.A.M. (Jesus & Me)! At our J.A.M. children are invited to learn about Jesus and grow in their relationship with Him as they explore the Bible together, sing, create, pray, and play. Note: We value the families and children that God brings to be a part of our church community and warmly welcome kids to stay in the service with their parents as well.

10:30 am // Worship Service
*for Communion the bread we serve for the Lord's supper is Gluten Free*
12:00 pm // Fellowship Time
A great tradition in our church life is sharing a cup of coffee after the worship service. This time is a regular opportunity to enjoy one another in a casual and conversational environment. New relationships can be formed and old relationships deepened through our fellowship time. Other fellowship opportunities happen throughout the week. * in order to be good stewards of God's creation, we use biodegradable products and coffee that is ethically sourced.
