Sunday Gathering

In the messiness of shared life, a community of broken people come together to learn what it means to follow Jesus. On Sunday we hope to see miracles, prophecy, healing. We expect the unexpected, and yet are wonderfully contented with the beautifully ordinary discipline of family, songs of protest and praise, and with the bread and the cup of communion.

More about Gathering


Van City Communities

We combat the hyper-individualism of our culture by deliberately choosing to share life with others in the context of community. More than friends with shared interests, a community shares resources, burdens, and life as they learn to apprentice Jesus together. In community, we learn what it means to follow Jesus as we work to see God's will done in Vancouver as it is in heaven.
