Holy Week & Easter services

Holy Week and Easter are arguably the most important days in the Christian year. In the span of a week we travel with Jesus from triumphal entry into Jerusalem through to defeat on the cross on Good Friday and then to resurrection on Easter morning. But this season is so much more than commemorating historic events – Holy Week and Easter bring together the full scope of our lives with the bold assertion that love triumphs over hate, life over death.

You are so welcome to join us for any of the following church services as we commemorate and celebrate this time of year:

PALM SUNDAY

Sunday, April 14 at 10:30am: Join in the nostalgia as all ages wave palm branches in the parade!

GOOD FRIDAY

Friday, April 19 at 10:30am: A quiet service to reflect on the places of brokenness in our lives. Join us for a time of singing, reflection, and nailing your prayers of lament to the cross. All ages welcome.

EASTER SUNDAY

Sunday, April 21 at 5:50am: A 30-minute Sunrise Easter morning service at Kits Beach (meet at the far north end of Maple Street – look for the signpost at the corner of Maple Street & Ogden Avenue). Bring a folding chair if you like. A light breakfast will follow at the Centre for Peace starting at 7:00am – bring fruit to share if you’re able!

Sunday, April 21 at 9am or 11am: Easter morning services featuring an Easter Choir and Orchestra – We’re offering the same service twice to accommodate the crowds. Coffee will be served from 10am to 11am, and parking in the Centre for Peace lot will be reserved for the elderly and those with mobility issues. Bring cut flowers if you’re able – we’ll be covering the cross with them!

The church is located at the corner of Burrard St. and 15th Ave. in Vancouver, BC. All are truly welcome.
