What to Expect

Sherry&AndyUpstairsGatheringWe are a casual, friendly and welcoming community.  Most people who visit us discover a unique, vibrant and diverse community of faith that is committed to being real with each other, genuinely worshipping God, and compassionately caring for others.

We invite you to visit us!  Perhaps you’ll discover that you’ve come home.

Main Gatherings

Nathan PlaysWe value getting together.  The whole community gathers corporately on Sunday mornings for a time of teaching, encouragement, worship through music, prayer ministry and a special time for our kids & youth.  These gathering times are critical, but are not the centre of what we do and who we are.  They simply allow us to do things together that we could not do alone or in smaller groups.

We have two main areas in which we gather on Sunday mornings.  Each gathering starts at 10 am and is finished by 11:45 am.  Both gatherings share kid’s programming on the 2nd floor and both share the same teaching topic.

The Downstairs Gathering:

This gathering happens in the main gathering area on the first floor.  It is a large gathering that is lively, casual and welcoming.  The feel is friendly, and there is always lots going on.

The Upstairs Gathering:

Upstairs Gathering BrynThis gathering happens in the Flatlanders Studio space on the third floor.  It is a smaller, quieter and more contemplative gathering.  Because of the space, it tends to be more intimate and interactive.  It is accessible via the main stairwell or the elevator by the south entrance.

Tuesday & Thursday Gatherings (Drop-ins):

There are other times the WCV community gathers together in larger groups – most notably during our Drop-ins on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 10 – 11:30 am.  These times consist of hot coffee, a warm space, conversation, prayer and fellowship.  Many people who are street involved are part of these gatherings. In the summer months (July and August) we gather just on Tuesdays.

Welcome Parties

Welcome PartyIf you’re new, visiting, or looking for a community to become part of, we’d love to get to know you.  Welcome Parties are regular times of connection and include a light lunch and an informal time to meet some of the pastors and elders.  They are held about once / quarter right after the Sunday gatherings.  Check the calendar for the next one – or contact the office to let us know you’re looking forward to one.
