Welcome Home!

The Cathedral is a community that loves to sing, laugh, eat, serve and worship God together in ways that send us refreshed and renewed into our daily lives—wherever that may take us.

If you are new to Vancouver, or are newly seeking a spiritual home, we invite you to join us for Sunday worship. Our Sunday services—during this phase of the pandemic—require pre-registration through Eventbrite.

You can also participate in liturgy via the Cathedral Livestream at 10.30am and 5.30pm. 

Our hope is that you’ll be able to get to know us through the website and in person so you’ll have what you need in order to decide whether the Cathedral offers a community where you can plant roots.

You’re invited to get to know us in a way that makes the most sense to you.
