At the Vancouver Church of Christ, our mission is to thrive and grow through Christ-centered community. Our two ministries, House Churches and Small Groups, were built with this end in mind and we’d love to have you along for the journey with us.
Once per month, we forgo meeting together as a big church and meet in small communities in homes spread across the city (which we call House Churches). These communities are not a smaller “Big Church” experience – we meet in our homes, share a meal, discuss the Bible, and celebrate Jesus together by taking communion. You won’t hear a sermon here, but will find a loving, welcoming community. We firmly believe that thriving and growing is best done in community, and there’s no better place for it than House Church!
We currently have seven House Churches spread across the Lower Mainland. We’d love for you to join us at one of our next gatherings. If you’d be interested in joining one, drop us a line below and we’ll point you in the right direction.

We’ve found that it’s impossible to do the most important things a church is supposed to do in church! Christian habits such as confession, carrying one another’s burdens, mutual encouragement, and prayer are not easy to do in the context of a large group gathering. So in an effort to support thriving and growing in Christ-centered community, we’ve decided to orient ourselves around a circle of relationships called Small Groups. These are groups of three or four people that are aimed to help us experience the transformational, unconditional acceptance of Jesus Christ in community.
If you’re interested in learning more about Small Groups, let us know below and we’d be delighted to assist you.
