We are a family friendly church where everyone is welcome to come as they are, regardless of background, baggage, or beliefs. Whether you consider yourself a skeptic or a Christian, we would love to have you come with all your questions, no matter what they are.




Starting September 20th, 2020 we will be having two gatherings each Sunday at 9AM and 11:15AM. In conjunction with this move to two services, we have some new requests to make! We respectfully ask that you wear your mask at all times except while seated and not singing. This means that during entry and exit, and while singing, we would appreciate you adorning your mask. Otherwise they are optional while seated and not singing. As part of our sanitizing protocol, we also ask that everyone from the 9AM service be out of the gymnasium by 10:40AM, so we can wipe down each seat and prepare to receive guests for our 11:15AM service. Thank you for your understanding as we seek to create a safe worship environment.

Each week on Wednesday we will post a link here to book seats for the upcoming Sunday gatherings. Seats are available on a first come first serve basis, and will be capped at 50 people per service. So be sure to register quickly between Wednesday AM and Sunday AM if you are planning to attend! For the sake of contact tracing, please register the name of each guest or family member who will be attending with you, so we have record of everyone who was in the building on each date. Please note that if you arrive later than 15 minutes after the service start time, your seat may be given to someone on standby.

If you’re visiting for the first time or have questions about regathering under COVID-19 protocol, here is some information that will help prepare you for an enjoyable time:


Lions Gate Christian Academy
919 Tollcross Rd.
North Vancouver, BC V7H 2G3

Sundays at 9AM & 11:15AM in the Elementary Gymnasium

Parking is available in the LGCA parking lot. If the lot is full, there is also plenty of parking on the street!


Upon arrival to the front doors of Lions Gate Christian Academy you will be greeted by a friendly host that will ask you to sanitize your hands, then check your name off on the guest list. If you did not register in advance you will be put on “stand-by”, in case there are any no-shows. Masks will also be available at checkin, but we encourage you to bring your own! After visiting the checkin table, you will then be guided towards the Elementary School Gym where an Usher will greet you.

The Usher will confirm how many people are in your seating “bubble”, and you will be directed to an assigned area that will accommodate you. Chairs will be set up socially distanced at 6ft apart.

Because this protocol will take a few extra minutes, we encourage you to arrive fifteen minutes before the service start time!

Our service starts with singing, a welcome, and then a message from the Bible.  We finish with a time where we remember Jesus by taking communion together (following COVID-19 protocol using individually apportioned emblems), and more singing. Service typically runs for one hour.

You can listen to our worship songs here.


Kids in-person will begin Sunday, October 4th! Visit the Kids page HERE to sign up. If classes are full, parents are welcome to bring their children to the in-person services as long as they can follow physical distancing practices.


We believe that the teaching of God’s word is to play a central role in our worship gatherings through both the public reading of scripture and the teaching of the word.

To get a feel for the teaching style, you can listen to past sermons here.

We hope to see you Sunday! Our hope is that you not only feel welcome and connect with great people, but that you encounter Jesus. As the church we don’t celebrate that we have it all together. We celebrate that we’ve been loved and saved by the grace and work of Jesus, despite ourselves.
