Prior to the Pandemic: Hope Mennonite's Worship Service

Info about Service: Our worship is held at 669 Broadway, Thomson Funeral Home, starting at 10:00AM. Everyone is welcome. Programs for children and adults follow the worship time.

What to wear: we are casual, wear what you want to wear.

What to expect: our service is approximately an hour long. There is corporate singing, a sermon, prayer, reflection time, a time of giving, sharing and announcements.

Children: are most welcome! During the service children are welcome and encouraged to be part of the service and sit with their parents in the sanctuary. There is also a designated play area at the back of the sanctuary (by the coat rack), where there are blankets, books and toys available for children of all ages. There are also some comfortable couches for parents with babies and young ones.

What is after the service? Children and youth are welcome to Children Circle and Youth Group. Adults are welcome to Adult Education. Once a month we have a potluck after church instead of Children’s Circle & Youth and Adult Ed.

Accessibility: There is a ramp to get into the building as well as a ramp to get from the foyer to the sanctuary. We have semi-accessible wheelchair washrooms on the main floor. There is an elevator to access the 2nd floor. There are wheelchair accessible washrooms on the second floor. We also have all-gender bathrooms on the second floor. In the sanctuary (right in the middle) there are a few spots reserved for those needing wheelchair areas.  We have audio devices for the hearing impaired.

LGBTQ2S+ Full Inclusion: You are welcome. Hope Mennonite Church desires to follow Jesus' example of welcoming all people to God's table. In our context, this includes welcoming the LGBTQ2S+ community and affirming their full inclusion and participation in the life of our church. Learn more about Hope Mennonite's Welcoming Journey.
