The Church is not a building. The Church is people. While the Church does need to gather for worship, people don't cease to be the Church just because it's a Tuesday, or because they're not in the right place.

Community Groups give us the opportunity to get together in each other's homes as the Church Scattered. They are an essential part of our ministry and mission in the Vancouver area and are an essential part of the life of VanChurch. In Community Groups, the people of VanChurch can build authentic community.

We have several Community Groups that meet in various parts of the Vancouver area. If you are interested in joining one of our Community Groups contact us and we will get you more information.
