On behalf of our church family,
Welcome to our church! We hope this gives you a bit of a glimpse into who we are and why we are excited to be followers of Jesus.
Wherever you are at in your understanding and heart for Jesus, we would love to journey with you. There is no entrance examination required for participation, just a desire to learn about God and love your neighbour.
Whether you’re a mature believer or just curious to check out this “Jesus thing,” we welcome you to join us in our quest to know God better through our Sunday morning worship, through our dedication to Jesus’ life and teaching and through loving service to the world around us.
We wish you God’s strength and blessing on your faith journey, and we are eager to help you in any way that we can.

April 1 – Tapestry Church (Classical Ministry Share)
A few years ago, Classis B.C. Northwest and Home Missions saw the need for a stronger Christian Reformed presence in the fast-growing Asian population of Richmond, B.C.. Out of this need, the Tapestry Church was born. Chinese pastor Albert Chu and his Dutch wife Ellen Vander Grift, are typical of the multicultural character of the church, which represents 16 countries and many racially mixed couples. Let’s do our part today by supporting the Tapestry with our gifts.
