About 75 minutes.
You can count on being out of there by noon, although we'd love you to stay for some coffee and snacks.
We have lots of covered underground parking. You can enter the church from the parking lot either by elevator of stairs. Or park on the street, generally Mountain Highway has plenty of street parking too.
We love visitors, but we know it can be a little uncomfortable at first. You can sit where you like, and while we'll do our best to make you feel at home, you won't be put on the spot.
There is none!
Just back from a hike in Lynn Canyon? On your way to a fancy brunch? Just rolled out of bed in your clothes from last night? Come as you are. Some people dress up for church, others don't, but that's what makes our community a rich tapestry of culture and colour.
We don't even pass the offering 'plate' around. If you'd like to give you can do so without anyone watching at the station set up at the back of the church.
Only if you want to!
Music is a huge part of Sunday mornings, with our talented musicians and song leaders you might find it hard not to. It does not matter if you have a good voice, or even if you sing in key, do what ever feels right for you.
Kids are a huge part of our service, we even have a table set up for them right at the front of the church. We have a dedicated, professional child worker who will keep your kids busy & entertained. During the service there is a special story time (we call it 'blanket time') and afterwards kids go to a short sunday school within the building.
Lynn Valley United Church is on a journey to become a formally designated affirming Church of the United Church of Canada. This careful process ensures that we're educated and enabled to be fully inclusive of the LGBTQ+ community.
