Sundays: General Information

Between September and June, our congregation meets on Sunday mornings at 10:30 am for services.

We meet at the Sapperton Pensioners’ Hall in New Westminster.  Services last for approximately one hour and fifteen minutes (see our Service Description page for upcoming service topics).

Children (4-12 years) begin the service upstairs with their families. Early in the service there is a children’s story, called “Story for all Ages”.  After this, children leave the service to attend the Religious Education program downstairs.  For children under 4 there is usually child care available in the nursery with volunteers who have been screened under our Safe Congregation Policy.

After the service, there is a coffee hour downstairs, to which all are invited to attend.

Parking

Parking for the Sunday services, and for any Saturday Beacon event, is available in the parking lot at the back of Sapperton Hall, and in the lane behind the Hall. Parking in the lane, next to the Professional Building, is available to us also, including the spaces that say they are reserved for staff.

There is additional parking in the lot behind the Professional Building, which is accessed from Simpson St., with the exception of the one space that is nearest the street and is clearly marked as Reserved for MCFD emergency vehicles. This reserved space must not be used at any time. Foot access to the lane and thus Sapperton Hall is through the cedar hedge.

If parking in the limited spots on Keary St., one must be sure to obey the city parking signs. There are metered spaces close to the Hall, and free spaces further up the hill. Do not park in the spaces reserved for residents. There is similar street parking on Simpson.
