Hi Friends,
We are looking forward to our first in-person Sunday service and reconnecting with one another. We hope you have found our church re-entry video helpful and if you have any further questions please let us know. We will be a small group this Sunday to test out what we have created and we will adjust and reassess things as need be. Next week, should you feel to be in a position to come back to in-person services, we ask that you pre-register with the church office
by telephone (250-766-4458)
by email (,
or on the church website under "events".
Select a Sunday in the events calendar and click "Join." You will have to register each person in your company separately.

This Sunday, we will have a blessing of our new shared spaces and you will be invited to share a hope you have for going forward.
Looking forward to seeing you Sunday!
